Hierarchical Neural Story Generation

ACL 2018 pytorch/fairseq

We explore story generation: creative systems that can build coherent and fluent passages of text about a topic.

Personalizing Dialogue Agents: I have a dog, do you have pets too?

ACL 2018 facebookresearch/ParlAI

Chit-chat models are known to have several problems: they lack specificity, do not display a consistent personality and are often not very captivating.

Subword Regularization: Improving Neural Network Translation Models with Multiple Subword Candidates

ACL 2018 google/sentencepiece

Subword units are an effective way to alleviate the open vocabulary problems in neural machine translation (NMT).

Chinese NER Using Lattice LSTM

ACL 2018 jiesutd/LatticeLSTM

We investigate a lattice-structured LSTM model for Chinese NER, which encodes a sequence of input characters as well as all potential words that match a lexicon.

Fast Abstractive Summarization with Reinforce-Selected Sentence Rewriting

ACL 2018 ChenRocks/fast_abs_rl

Inspired by how humans summarize long documents, we propose an accurate and fast summarization model that first selects salient sentences and then rewrites them abstractively (i. e., compresses and paraphrases) to generate a concise overall summary.
