What you'll do

Neural Attention Models for Explanation Generation in RC QA Tasks

Project Description

In recent years, Complex Question Answering (CQA) tasks have become battlegrounds for AI and NLP researchers aiming to advance Artificial General Intelligence (AGI). Furthermore, a variety of the datasets have been made available in the public domain for this purpose. For example, CoQA, Narrative QA, NewsQA, SQuAD, TriviaQA (Reading Comprehension), and AI2's Science QA (Reasoning). Many of these datasets are also available as open challenges. Successful approaches for the CQA are based on deep nets and are aimed at getting the correct answer. To the best of our knowledge, these techniques don't offer an explicit explanation of the answer. The goal of this project is to develop the very notion of explanation itself for this problem context and subsequently design a system to generate the explanations for well-known datasets
