Teach Me What to Say and I Will Learn What to Pick: Unsupervised Knowledge Selection Through Response Generation with Pretrained Generative Models

no code implementations EMNLP (NLP4ConvAI) 2021 Ehsan Lotfi, Maxime De Bruyn, Jeska Buhmann, Walter Daelemans

In this work we study the unsupervised selection abilities of pre-trained generative models (e. g. BART) and show that by adding a score-and-aggregate module between encoder and decoder, they are capable of learning to pick the proper knowledge through minimising the language modelling loss (i. e. without having access to knowledge labels).
