How We Achieved Human Parity in CommonsenseQA — Fusing Knowledge into Language Models

Event Details

Large-scale language models (LM) have achieved great results in many NLP applications. However, there is still a non-negligible gap compared with human’s capability. One of the key reasons is the lack of external knowledge integration. We argue that language models should be equipped with knowledge to better understand world common sense and relations. In this talk, I will introduce how to represent and fuse knowledge into language models, which includes three steps: 1) Ground language into related knowledge, 2) Represent knowledge, and 3) Fuse knowledge representation into language model. We demonstrate our proposed knowledge-boosted LM in the following work: i) achieving human parity in Commonsense Q&A, ii) Dictionary-boosted Language Model, and iii) Knowledge-text Co-pretraining.
