In sentence modeling and classification, convolutional neural network
approaches have recently achieved state-of-the-art results, but all such
efforts process word vectors sequentially and neglect long-distance
dependencies. To exploit both deep learning and linguistic structures, we
propose a tree-based convolutional neural network model which exploit various
long-distance relationships between words. Our model improves the sequential
baselines on all three sentiment and question classification tasks, and
achieves the highest published accuracy on TREC.
