SILO Language Models: Isolating Legal Risk In a Nonparametric Datastore

1 code implementation8 Aug 2023 Sewon Min, Suchin Gururangan, Eric Wallace, Hannaneh Hajishirzi, Noah A. Smith, Luke Zettlemoyer

SILO is built by (1) training a parametric LM on Open License Corpus (OLC), a new corpus we curate with 228B tokens of public domain and permissively licensed text and (2) augmenting it with a more general and easily modifiable nonparametric datastore (e. g., containing copyrighted books or news) that is only queried during inference.

Deduplicating Training Data Mitigates Privacy Risks in Language Models

3 code implementations14 Feb 2022 Nikhil Kandpal, Eric Wallace, Colin Raffel

Past work has shown that large language models are susceptible to privacy attacks, where adversaries generate sequences from a trained model and detect which sequences are memorized from the training set.

Analyzing Dynamic Adversarial Training Data in the Limit

1 code implementation Findings (ACL) 2022 Eric Wallace, Adina Williams, Robin Jia, Douwe Kiela

To create models that are robust across a wide range of test inputs, training datasets should include diverse examples that span numerous phenomena.

Calibrate Before Use: Improving Few-Shot Performance of Language Models

5 code implementations19 Feb 2021 Tony Z. Zhao, Eric Wallace, Shi Feng, Dan Klein, Sameer Singh

We show that this type of few-shot learning can be unstable: the choice of prompt format, training examples, and even the order of the training examples can cause accuracy to vary from near chance to near state-of-the-art.

Interpreting Predictions of NLP Models

Evaluating NLP Models via Contrast Sets

no code implementations1 Oct 2020 Matt Gardner, Yoav Artzi, Victoria Basmova, Jonathan Berant, Ben Bogin, Sihao Chen, Pradeep Dasigi, Dheeru Dua, Yanai Elazar, Ananth Gottumukkala, Nitish Gupta, Hanna Hajishirzi, Gabriel Ilharco, Daniel Khashabi, Kevin Lin, Jiangming Liu, Nelson F. Liu, Phoebe Mulcaire, Qiang Ning, Sameer Singh, Noah A. Smith, Sanjay Subramanian, Reut Tsarfaty, Eric Wallace, A. Zhang, Ben Zhou

Unfortunately, when a dataset has systematic gaps (e. g., annotation artifacts), these evaluations are misleading: a model can learn simple decision rules that perform well on the test set but do not capture a dataset's intended capabilities.
