Cache Transition Systems for Semantic Parsing

Abstract: We describe a transition system that generalizes standard transition-based dependency parsing techniques to generate a graph rather than a tree.  Our system includes a cache with fixed size m, and we characterize the relationship between the parameter m and the class of graphs that can be produced through the graph-theoretic concept of tree decomposition.  We train a sequence-to-sequence neural model based on this system to parse text into Abstract Meaning Representation (AMR).

Title: Bridging NLP and brain science to improve natural language understanding

Abstract: Natural language processing systems have made impressive strides in producing useful task-oriented language tools - but even the most sophisticated NLP systems fall dramatically short of the human brain in robustness and nuance of language understanding. A particular area of need in NLP is that of sentence composition: the combinatory capacity that allows humans to generate and understand the meanings of infinite sentences based on their parts.
