Constrained Multi-Task Learning for Bridging Resolution

1 code implementation ACL 2022 Hideo Kobayashi, Yufang Hou, Vincent Ng

We examine the extent to which supervised bridging resolvers can be improved without employing additional labeled bridging data by proposing a novel constrained multi-task learning framework for bridging resolution, within which we (1) design cross-task consistency constraints to guide the learning process; (2) pre-train the entity coreference model in the multi-task framework on the large amount of publicly available coreference data; and (3) integrating prior knowledge encoded in rule-based resolvers.

Finding Sub-task Structure with Natural Language Instruction

no code implementations LNLS (ACL) 2022 Ryokan Ri, Yufang Hou, Radu Marinescu, Akihiro Kishimoto

When mapping a natural language instruction to a sequence of actions, it is often useful toidentify sub-tasks in the instruction.

HBCP Corpus: A New Resource for the Analysis of Behavioural Change Intervention Reports

no code implementations LREC 2020 Francesca Bonin, Martin Gleize, Ailbhe Finnerty, C. Moore, ice, Charles Jochim, Emma Norris, Yufang Hou, Alison J. Wright, Debasis Ganguly, Emily Hayes, Silje Zink, Aless Pascale, ra, Pol Mac Aonghusa, Susan Michie

Due to the fast pace at which research reports in behaviour change are published, researchers, consultants and policymakers would benefit from more automatic ways to process these reports.

Bridging Anaphora Resolution as Question Answering

1 code implementation ACL 2020 Yufang Hou

Most previous studies on bridging anaphora resolution (Poesio et al., 2004; Hou et al., 2013b; Hou, 2018a) use the pairwise model to tackle the problem and assume that the gold mention information is given.
