Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: Humor is an integral part of human lives. Despite being tremendously impactful, it is perhaps surprising that we do not yet have a detailed understanding of humor. In this work, we explore the novel problem of studying visual humor and designing computational models of humor using abstract scenes. We collect and make publicly available two datasets of abstract scenes: one that enables the study of humor at the scene-level and the other at the object-level. We study the funny scenes in our dataset and explore different types of humor depicted in these scenes. We model two tasks that we believe demonstrate an understanding of visual humor -- predicting the funniness of a scene and altering the funniness of a scene. We show that our models perform well using automatic evaluation as well as human studies.

同形溞(Daphniasimilis)对幽蚊幼虫反捕食策略的模拟研究  [PDF]
湖泊科学 , 2013, DOI: 10.18307/2013.0213
Abstract: 枝角类溞会由于捕食者的存在而发生形态、行为、生活史等的变化.通过为期10d对太湖春、夏季优势种同形溞(Daphniasimilis)在有幽蚊幼虫(CL)、无幽蚊幼虫(CK)及培养过幽蚊幼虫的过滤水(FL)3个环境水平的模拟实验,发现同形溞在有幽蚊幼虫和培养过幽蚊幼虫的过滤水处理下平均体长、累积产仔数及平均产仔数均显著大于无幽蚊幼虫组,表明幽蚊幼虫释放的信息素能改变同形溞的体长、产仔数等生活史参数,这种改变会降低同形溞被捕食的风险.说明在自然环境下,幽蚊幼虫等无脊椎捕食者能通过直接捕食和信息素的间接作用共同影响枝角类种群.
On Untranslatability of English Linguistic Humor  [cached]
Qian Han
Theory and Practice in Language Studies , 2011, DOI: 10.4304/tpls.1.2.149-152
Abstract: Linguistic humor has long been considered untranslatable because of the fact that its linguistic features can never be duplicated in another language. The thesis views this long-debated issue with the Skopos theory and Translation Variation Theory and arrives at the conclusion that what has been hindering the humor translation includes not only the outward form—linguistic features of humor, but also something in ideological aspect— the conventional idea about the nature of translation and translation criteria.

Teaching Lexical Humor to Children with Autism

Studies in Literature and Language , 2011, DOI: 10.3968/j.sll.1923156320110203.001
Abstract: Comprehension and production of linguistic humor is an important social, linguistic, and cognitive skill for all children, but it often fails to develop in children with autism. One form of linguistic humor that is based on multiple meaning words and can take the form of riddles or jokes has been identified as “lexical humor.” This study investigated the effects of the Lexical Humor Treatment Program (Gill, White, & Reyes, 2010) on six high-functioning children with autism. All of the children increased their understanding of multiple-meaning words and their ability to answer related riddles on which they had been trained. More importantly, the children were able to transfer their skill in practiced riddles to novel riddles on which they had not been trained. These results suggest that the teaching of humor in the form of lexical riddles might be an important treatment consideration for children with autism. Key words: Lexical Humor; Linguistic Humor; Autism; Asperger Syndrome; Riddles; Multiple Meaning Words; Humor Instruction
