Parameter-efficient Zero-shot Transfer for Cross-Language Dense Retrieval with Adapters

no code implementations20 Dec 2022 Eugene Yang, Suraj Nair, Dawn Lawrie, James Mayfield, Douglas W. Oard

By adding adapters pretrained on language tasks for a specific language with task-specific adapters, prior work has shown that the adapter-enhanced models perform better than fine-tuning the entire model when transferring across languages in various NLP tasks.

Effects of context, complexity, and clustering on evaluation for math formula retrieval

no code implementations20 Nov 2021 Behrooz Mansouri, Douglas W. Oard, Anurag Agarwal, Richard Zanibbi

There are now several test collections for the formula retrieval task, in which a system's goal is to identify useful mathematical formulae to show in response to a query posed as a formula.


Cross-language Information Retrieval

no code implementations10 Nov 2021 Petra Galuščáková, Douglas W. Oard, Suraj Nair

Two key assumptions shape the usual view of ranked retrieval: (1) that the searcher can choose words for their query that might appear in the documents that they wish to see, and (2) that ranking retrieved documents will suffice because the searcher will be able to recognize those which they wished to find.

Providing More Efficient Access To Government Records: A Use Case Involving Application of Machine Learning to Improve FOIA Review for the Deliberative Process Privilege

no code implementations14 Nov 2020 Jason R. Baron, Mahmoud F. Sayed, Douglas W. Oard

At present, the review process for material that is exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in the United States of America, and under many similar government transparency regimes worldwide, is entirely manual.
