Long short term memory based models for negation handling in tutorial dialogues


Negation plays a significant role in spoken and written natural languages. Negation is used in language to deny something or to reverse the polarity or the sense of a statement. This paper presents a novel approach to automatically handling negation in tutorial dialogues using deep learning methods. In particular, we explored various Long Short Term Memory (LSTM) models to automatically detect negation focus, scope and cue in tutorial dialogues collected from experiments with actual students interacting with the state-of-the-art intelligent tutoring system, DeepTutor. The results obtained are promising.
