MovieChats: Chat like Humans in a Closed Domain

no code implementations EMNLP 2020 Hui Su, Xiaoyu Shen, Zhou Xiao, Zheng Zhang, Ernie Chang, Cheng Zhang, Cheng Niu, Jie zhou

In this work, we take a close look at the movie domain and present a large-scale high-quality corpus with fine-grained annotations in hope of pushing the limit of movie-domain chatbots.


Time-Aware Ancient Chinese Text Translation and Inference

1 code implementation7 Jul 2021 Ernie Chang, Yow-Ting Shiue, Hui-Syuan Yeh, Vera Demberg

In this paper, we aim to address the challenges surrounding the translation of ancient Chinese text: (1) The linguistic gap due to the difference in eras results in translations that are poor in quality, and (2) most translations are missing the contextual information that is often very crucial to understanding the text.


Jointly Improving Language Understanding and Generation with Quality-Weighted Weak Supervision of Automatic Labeling

no code implementations EACL 2021 Ernie Chang, Vera Demberg, Alex Marin

Neural natural language generation (NLG) and understanding (NLU) models are data-hungry and require massive amounts of annotated data to be competitive.

Does the Order of Training Samples Matter? Improving Neural Data-to-Text Generation with Curriculum Learning

no code implementations EACL 2021 Ernie Chang, Hui-Syuan Yeh, Vera Demberg

Efforts have been dedicated to improving text generation systems by changing the order of training samples in a process known as curriculum learning.

Neural Data-to-Text Generation with LM-based Text Augmentation

no code implementations EACL 2021 Ernie Chang, Xiaoyu Shen, Dawei Zhu, Vera Demberg, Hui Su

Our approach automatically augments the data available for training by (i) generating new text samples based on replacing specific values by alternative ones from the same category, (ii) generating new text samples based on GPT-2, and (iii) proposing an automatic method for pairing the new text samples with data samples.
