Word Segmentation as Graph Partition

04/05/2018 ∙ by Yuanhao Liu, et al. ∙ 0

We propose a new approach to the Chinese word segmentation problem that considers the sentence as an undirected graph, whose nodes are the characters. One can use various techniques to compute the edge weights that measure the connection strength between characters. Spectral graph partition algorithms are used to group the characters and achieve word segmentation. We follow the graph partition approach and design several unsupervised algorithms, and we show their inspiring segmentation results on two corpora: (1) electronic health records in Chinese, and (2) benchmark data from the Second International Chinese Word Segmentation Bakeoff.
