Oct 13, 2016
A full paper has been accepted for presentation and publication for the Jurix Conference 2016 in Sofia Antopolis entiteled "Extending Full Text Search for Legal Document Collections using Word Embeddings". The authors examine the applicability to use Word Embeddings, a recent trend in natural languange processing, to extend traditional full text search methods to include semantically similar parts of texts in a given corpus. The authors attempt to extract obligations for processors from the recently publised EU Data Protection Directive. The authors also show the applicability of the proposed method to identify similar provisions in a small corpus of publicly available rental contracts.
