Chinese AI company iFLYTEK has bested the SQuAD2.0 challenge once again. The model “BERT + DAE + AoA” submitted by the joint iFLYTEK Research and HIT (Harbin Institute of Technology) laboratory HFL outperformed humans on both EM (exact match) and F1-score (fuzzy match) indexes to top the SQuAD2.0 leaderboard.
Earlier this week the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL) 2018 announced its Best Two Short Papers, neither of which had yet been published. Today the AI community got its first look at one of the winners when Know What You Don’t Know: Unanswerable Questions for SQuAD was released on arXiv.
