Emphasis Selection for Written Text in Visual Media

The project will investigate automatic methods for emphasis selection (choosing candidates for emphasis) in short texts, and should be based on work towards the SemEval 2020 shared task "Emphasis Selection for Written Text in Visual Media". The topic of the shared task is specified by the organisers by: "word emphasis is used to better capture the intent, removing the ambiguity that may exist in plain text. Word Emphasis can clarify or even change the meaning of a sentence by drawing attention to some specific information, and it can be done with Colors, Backgrounds, or Fonts, Italic and Boldface."
