Does entity abstraction help generative Transformers reason?

no code implementations5 Jan 2022 Nicolas Gontier, Siva Reddy, Christopher Pal

We study the utility of incorporating entity type abstractions into pre-trained Transformers and test these methods on four NLP tasks requiring different forms of logical reasoning: (1) compositional language understanding with text-based relational reasoning (CLUTRR), (2) abductive reasoning (ProofWriter), (3) multi-hop question answering (HotpotQA), and (4) conversational question answering (CoQA).

Modelling Latent Translations for Cross-Lingual Transfer

1 code implementation23 Jul 2021 Edoardo Maria Ponti, Julia Kreutzer, Ivan Vulić, Siva Reddy

To remedy this, we propose a new technique that integrates both steps of the traditional pipeline (translation and classification) into a single model, by treating the intermediate translations as a latent random variable.

1 code implementation2 Jun 2021 Edoardo Maria Ponti, Rahul Aralikatte, Disha Shrivastava, Siva Reddy, Anders Søgaard

In fact, under a decision-theoretic framework, MAML can be interpreted as minimising the expected risk across training languages (with a uniform prior), which is known as Bayes criterion.

Understanding by Understanding Not: Modeling Negation in Language Models

1 code implementation NAACL 2021 Arian Hosseini, Siva Reddy, Dzmitry Bahdanau, R Devon Hjelm, Alessandro Sordoni, Aaron Courville

To improve language models in this regard, we propose to augment the language modeling objective with an unlikelihood objective that is based on negated generic sentences from a raw text corpus.

MeDAL: Medical Abbreviation Disambiguation Dataset for Natural Language Understanding Pretraining

Words aren't enough, their order matters: On the Robustness of Grounding Visual Referring Expressions

1 code implementation ACL 2020 Arjun R. Akula, Spandana Gella, Yaser Al-Onaizan, Song-Chun Zhu, Siva Reddy

To measure the true progress of existing models, we split the test set into two sets, one which requires reasoning on linguistic structure and the other which doesn't.

Building a Neural Semantic Parser from a Domain Ontology

We address these challenges with a framework which allows to elicit training data from a domain ontology and bootstrap a neural parser which recursively builds derivations of logical forms.

Learning Typed Entailment Graphs with Global Soft Constraints

1 code implementation TACL 2018 Mohammad Javad Hosseini, Nathanael Chambers, Siva Reddy, Xavier R. Holt, Shay B. Cohen, Mark Johnson, Mark Steedman

We instead propose a scalable method that learns globally consistent similarity scores based on new soft constraints that consider both the structures across typed entailment graphs and inside each graph.
