2006. Shallow discourse structure for action item detection

By Matthew Purver, Patrick Ehlen and John Niekrasz


We investigated automatic action item detection from transcripts of multi-party meetings. Unlike previous work (Gruenstein et al., 2005), we use a new hierarchical annotation scheme based on the roles utterances play in the action item assignment process, and propose an approach to automatic detection that promises improved classification accuracy while enabling the extraction of useful information for summarization and reporting.
