This directory is contains files that support intention detection. The default
data/salience/intentions directory contains the following files that can be accessed and customized by users:
A list of verbs that are commonly prefixed into longer verb phrases
A list of words or phrases that indicate an intention
Verb forms and synonyms for supported intentions
Core specification of the supported intentions
A datafile provided to support out-of-box patterns in restrictions.ptn
Patterns to filter raw intention detection to improve reported results
Certain verbs commonly occur in longer verb phrases, such as e.g. "planned to go", "need to think", "gets to come". A similar datafile exists within the chunker directory, where it serves to control which verbs are part of the same chunk or not. In the case of intentions, the auxiliary verbs are used in understanding verb phrases while looking for intentions.
This datafile has the following format:
<Word or phrase suggestive of an intention> <tab> <part-of-speech tag>
For example, specifying
steal<tab>NN would allow "it's a steal" to be an intention clue, but "they steal for a living" is not.
The intention model uses the number of these indicators that hit as a clue to identify intentions.
This datafile contains the verbs, verb forms, verb phrases and other synonyms that are indicative of intention expression. Further information about this file, as well as information about customizing intentions can be found on the Intentions feature page.
This datafile defines the intention types that can be detected, as well as instructions to Salience about how the intention is detected. Further information about this file, as well as information about customizing intentions can be found on the Intentions feature page.
This is a datafile developed to support the patterns provided in restrictions.ptn. Additions or modifications will affect the effectiveness of the restriction patterns.
This is a standard Salience pattern file, which is used to improve out-of-the-box intention detection by filtering out false positives observed in development. Further information about this file, as well as information about customizing intentions can be found on the Intentions feature page.
