Data-Driven Methods for Solving Algebra Word Problems

28 Apr 2018  ·  Benjamin Robaidek, Rik Koncel-Kedziorski, Hannaneh Hajishirzi ·

We explore contemporary, data-driven techniques for solving math word problems over recent large-scale datasets. We show that well-tuned neural equation classifiers can outperform more sophisticated models such as sequence to sequence and self-attention across these datasets. Our error analysis indicates that, while fully data driven models show some promise, semantic and world knowledge is necessary for further advances.
