Semantic Parsing is the task of transducing natural language utterances into formal meaning representations. The target meaning representations can be defined according to a wide variety of formalisms. This include linguistically-motivated semantic representations that are designed to capture the meaning of any sentence such as λ-calculus or the abstract meaning representations. Alternatively, for more task-driven approaches to Semantic Parsing, it is common for meaning representations to represent executable programs such as SQL queries, robotic commands, smart phone instructions, and even general-purpose programming languages like Python and Java.

Exploring the Limits of Transfer Learning with a Unified Text-to-Text Transformer

google-research/text-to-text-transfer-transformer arXiv 2019

Transfer learning, where a model is first pre-trained on a data-rich task before being fine-tuned on a downstream task, has emerged as a powerful technique in natural language processing (NLP).

Frame-Semantic Parsing with Softmax-Margin Segmental RNNs and a Syntactic Scaffold

SParC: Cross-Domain Semantic Parsing in Context

ryanzhumich/editsql ACL 2019

The best model obtains an exact match accuracy of 20. 2% over all questions and less than10% over all interaction sequences, indicating that the cross-domain setting and the con-textual phenomena of the dataset present significant challenges for future research.
