D.A. Ustalov (IMM UB RAS, Yekaterinburg, Russia)


This paper presents an ontology induction approach that extracts the structured lexical knowledge from synonym dictionaries and establishing the semantic relations within these structures using word embeddings and their projections. The results of the preliminary experiments have also been reported showing certain strengths and weaknesses of the proposed approach.
