Inferring and Executing Programs for Visual Reasoning

International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV)

Inspired by module networks, this paper proposes a model for visual reasoning that consists of a program generator that constructs an explicit representation of the reasoning process to be performed, and an execution engine that executes the resulting program to produce an answer.

Natural Language Does Not Emerge ‘Naturally’ in Multi-Agent Dialog

Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing (EMNLP)

In this paper, using a Task & Talk reference game between two agents as a testbed, we present a sequence of ‘negative’ results culminating in a ‘positive’ one – showing that while most agent-invented languages are effective (i.e. achieve near-perfect task rewards), they are decidedly not interpretable or compositional.

Learning Multilingual Joint Sentence Embeddings with Neural Machine Translation

ACL workshop on Representation Learning for NLP (ACL)

In this paper, we use the framework of neural machine translation to learn joint sentence representations across six very different languages. Our aim is that a representation which is independent of the language, is likely to capture the underlying semantics.

Enriching Word Vectors with Subword Information

TACL, Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL 2017)

In this paper, we propose a new approach based on the skipgram model, where each word is represented as a bag of character n-grams.

Reading Wikipedia to Answer Open-Domain Questions

Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL 2017)

This paper proposes to tackle open- domain question answering using Wikipedia as the unique knowledge source: the answer to any factoid question is a text span in a Wikipedia article.
