Transfer and Multi-Task Learning for Noun-Noun Compound Interpretation

18 Sep 2018Murhaf FaresStephan OepenErik Velldal

In this paper, we empirically evaluate the utility of transfer and multi-task learning on a challenging semantic classification task: semantic interpretation of noun--noun compounds. Through a comprehensive series of experiments and in-depth error analysis, we show that transfer learning via parameter initialization and multi-task learning via parameter sharing can help a neural classification model generalize over a highly skewed distribution of relations...
