WikiTableT: A Large-Scale Data-to-Text Dataset for Generating Wikipedia Article Sections

Datasets for data-to-text generation typically focus either on multi-domain, single-sentence generation or on single-domain, long-form generation. In this work, we cast generating Wikipedia sections as a data-to-text generation task and create a large-scale dataset, WikiTableT, that pairs Wikipedia sections with their corresponding tabular data and various metadata. WikiTableT contains millions of instances, covering a broad range of topics, as well as a variety of flavors of generation tasks with different levels of flexibility. We benchmark several training and decoding strategies on WikiTableT. Our qualitative analysis shows that the best approaches can generate fluent and high quality texts but they struggle with coherence and factuality, showing the potential for our dataset to inspire future work on long-form generation.
