Novel Chapter Abstractive Summarization using Spinal Tree Aware Sub-Sentential Content Selection

no code implementations9 Nov 2022 Hardy Hardy, Miguel Ballesteros, Faisal Ladhak, Muhammad Khalifa, Vittorio Castelli, Kathleen McKeown

Summarizing novel chapters is a difficult task due to the input length and the fact that sentences that appear in the desired summaries draw content from multiple places throughout the chapter.

Contrastive Training Improves Zero-Shot Classification of Semi-structured Documents

no code implementations11 Oct 2022 Muhammad Khalifa, Yogarshi Vyas, Shuai Wang, Graham Horwood, Sunil Mallya, Miguel Ballesteros

The standard classification setting where categories are fixed during both training and testing falls short in dynamic environments where new document categories could potentially emerge.

Few-shot Reranking for Multi-hop QA via Language Model Prompting

2 code implementations25 May 2022 Muhammad Khalifa, Lajanugen Logeswaran, Moontae Lee, Honglak Lee, Lu Wang

To alleviate the need for a large number of labeled question-document pairs for retriever training, we propose PromptRank, which relies on large language models prompting for multi-hop path reranking.

Zero-Resource Multi-Dialectal Arabic Natural Language Understanding

no code implementations14 Apr 2021 Muhammad Khalifa, Hesham Hassan, Aly Fahmy

In this paper, we investigate the zero-shot performance on Dialectal Arabic (DA) when fine-tuning a PLM on modern standard Arabic (MSA) data only -- identifying a significant performance drop when evaluating such models on DA.

Self-Training Pre-Trained Language Models for Zero- and Few-Shot Multi-Dialectal Arabic Sequence Labeling

1 code implementation EACL 2021 Muhammad Khalifa, Muhammad Abdul-Mageed, Khaled Shaalan

We propose to self-train pre-trained language models in zero- and few-shot scenarios to improve performance on data-scarce varieties using only resources from data-rich ones.
