D. Fedorenko, N. Astrakhantsev, D. Turdakov.


This paper presents an experimental evaluation of the state-of-the-art approaches for automatic term recognition based on multiple features: machine learning method and voting algorithm. We show that in most cases machine learning approach obtains the best results and needs little data for training; we also find the best subsets of all popular features.
