Carnegie Mellon University researchers provide background information and details on contributions to the DialPort project over the last six years in their new paper The DialPort Tools. These tools — such as the DialPort Portal and DialCrowd — will be demoed at the SIGDIAL 2022 conference next month in Edinburgh.
An OpenAI research team fine-tunes the GPT-3 pretrained language model to enable it to answer long-form questions by searching and navigating a text-based web browsing environment, achieving retrieval and synthesis improvements and reaching human-level long-form question-answering performance.
A research team from the University of Southern California and Google proposes TOME, a “mention memory” approach to factual knowledge extraction for NLU tasks. A transformer model with attention over a semi-parametric representation of the entire Wikipedia text corpus, TOME can extract information without supervision and achieves strong performance on multiple open-domain question answering benchmarks.
