A Unified Bayesian Model of Scripts, Frames and Language

AAAI Conferences

We present the first probabilistic model to capture all levels of the Minsky Frame structure, with the goal of corpus-based induction of scenario definitions. Our model unifies prior efforts in discourse-level modeling with that of Fillmore's related notion of frame, as captured in sentence-level, FrameNet semantic parses; as part of this, we resurrect the coupling among Minsky's frames, Schank's scripts and Fillmore's frames, as originally laid out by those authors. Empirically, our approach yields improved scenario representations, reflected quantitatively in lower surprisal and more coherent latent scenarios.

MURDERER is now a concept about which facts can be uniformly asserted (e.g., Murderers are dangerous. Murderers may be violent., etc). There is one remaining field in Table 1. This is the slot-functions field.
