Semi supervised pre training dialogue model SPACE

Introduction to the report :

How to integrate human prior knowledge into the pre training model at low cost has always been a problem NLP The problem of .

In this work , A new training paradigm based on semi supervised pre training is proposed by the dialogue intelligent team of Dharma Academy , A small amount of marked dialogue data and a large amount of non-standard dialogue data are pre trained through semi supervised method , Using the consistent regularization loss function, the dialogue strategy knowledge contained in the labeled data is injected into the pre training model , So as to learn a better model representation .

A new semi supervised pre training dialogue model SPACE(Semi-Supervised Pre-trAined Conversation ModEl) Firstly, it focuses on the knowledge of dialogue strategies .

Experiments show that ,SPACE1.0 Model in Cambridge MultiWOZ2.0, Amazon MultiWOZ2.1 And other classic conversation data sets 5%+ Significantly improve , And under various low resource settings ,SPACE1.0 Better than existing sota The models have stronger small sample learning ability .

On position embeddings

Introduction to the report :

transformer Widely used in nlp Mission ( Especially the pre training model ), Even started using cv The field is coming to the fore .transformer Its structure will not be able to model the order of input without position coding , So location coding is very important .

At present, many pre training models use different location codes ( For example, fully learnable location coding , Trigonometric function fixed position coding , Relative position coding ), Good experience , However, there is a lack of a unified framework to understand and evaluate these location codes .

Let's first explain why the motivation of trigonometric function position coding , In short, it is to replace the translation by rotation , To inject position information into the word vector .

Our latest work formalizes some principled properties of location coding ( Translation invariant , Monotonicity and symmetry ), And evaluate the extent to which the existing location codes meet these attributes , Finally, quantitatively evaluate how these attributes benefit / Damage downstream tasks .

We find that fully learnable location coding works well in whole sentence classification scenarios , Thanks to its flexibility CLS special token And normal position ; The relative position code is in span prediction Better effect .

Quickly detect the complex correlation between data

Introduction to the report :

Detecting and distinguishing the relationship between variables is a basic work of data analysis , Quickly finding and measuring the variables with correlation not only saves researchers' time , It also provides valuable direction guidance for subsequent analysis and modeling .

This study proposes a new kind of statistical tools , Nearest neighbor correlation coefficient (nCor), From a new perspective , Can effectively detect continuous 、 discrete , And categorical variables .

And all kinds of mutual information (MI) Our valuation algorithm 、MIC、dCor、RDC、HSIC Compared with the hot methods in recent years , New methods for various data types 、 Complex relationships are more applicable , Stronger detection ability and robustness .

The new method can also better distinguish predictable 、 Heteroscedastic 、 The interaction of , And all kinds of complex data relationships that overlap , Provide more in-depth and effective guidance for follow-up analysis and research .

This study is based on three papers published in recent years , This paper expounds the principle and specific implementation methods of the new statistics in different application situations .
