Keyphrase Generation for Scientific Document Retrieval

ACL 2020  ·  Florian Boudin, Ygor Gallina, Akiko Aizawa ·

Sequence-to-sequence models have lead to significant progress in keyphrase generation, but it remains unknown whether they are reliable enough to be beneficial for document retrieval. This study provides empirical evidence that such models can significantly improve retrieval performance, and introduces a new extrinsic evaluation framework that allows for a better understanding of the limitations of keyphrase generation models. Using this framework, we point out and discuss the difficulties encountered with supplementing documents with -- not present in text -- keyphrases, and generalizing models across domains.
