WISeR: Semantic Representation

The Widely Interpretable Semantic Representation (WISeR) captures both abstract and concrete concepts as well as their relations in plain text. One major focus of this project is to design a meaning representation that can be easily converted into symbolic graphs to make logic inference on dialogue context. WISeR is distinguished from general Abstract Meaning Representation (AMR) as:

  • It provides deeper and richer levels of abstraction.
  • It is Interpretable by non-experts in computational structures.
  • It covers relations across utterances (e.g., referents, external arguments).



  • WISeR - main repository
  • StreamSide - annotation tool for meaning representations
