DaNetQA (Yes/no Question Answering Dataset for the Russian)

Introduced by Shavrina et al. in RussianSuperGLUE: A Russian Language Understanding Evaluation Benchmark

DaNetQA is a question answering dataset for yes/no questions. These questions are naturally occurring ---they are generated in unprompted and unconstrained settings.

Each example is a triplet of (question, passage, answer), with the title of the page as optional additional context. The text-pair classification setup is similar to existing natural language inference tasks.

By sampling questions from a distribution of information-seeking queries (rather than prompting annotators for text pairs), we observe significantly more challenging examples compared to existing NLI datasets.

How did we collect data?

All text examples were collected in accordance with the methodology for collecting the original dataset. Answers to the questions were received with the help of assessors, and texts were also received automatically using ODQA systems on Wikipedia. Human assessment was carried out on Yandex.Toloka.

*Additionally, to increase number of samples and the distribution of yes/no answers, we added extra data in the same format (data were collected from Yandex.Toloka while generating MuSeRC dataset).
