Easing Legal News Monitoring with Learning to Rank and BERT [chapter]

Luis Sanchez, Jiyin He, Jarana Manotumruksa, Dyaa Albakour, Miguel Martinez, Aldo Lipani
2020 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we present a legal search problem where professionals monitor news articles with constant queries on a periodic basis.  ...  In an attempt to capture the complex information needs of users, a learning to rank approach is adopted with user specified relevance criteria as features.  ...  The users monitor a specific legal topic by querying the news stream with that topic periodically and all the retrieved results are tagged with a relevance judgment for later usage.  ...

FedMatch: Federated Learning Over Heterogeneous Question Answering Data [article]

Jiangui Chen, Ruqing Zhang, Jiafeng Guo, Yixing Fan, Xueqi Cheng
2021 arXiv   pre-print
A possible solution to this dilemma is a new approach known as federated learning, which is a privacy-preserving machine learning technique over distributed datasets.  ...  Here the heterogeneity refers to the fact that annotated QA data are typically with non-identical and independent distribution (non-IID) and unbalanced sizes in practice.  ...  And then the authors recruit seven experts with legal training to construct answers to questions. Table 1 shows the overall statistics of our FedQA benchmark dataset.  ...

2021 arXiv   pre-print
AI is undergoing a paradigm shift with the rise of models (e.g., BERT, DALL-E, GPT-3) that are trained on broad data at scale and are adaptable to a wide range of downstream tasks.  ...  Though foundation models are based on standard deep learning and transfer learning, their scale results in new emergent capabilities,and their effectiveness across so many tasks incentivizes homogenization  ...  In addition, we would like to especially thank Vanessa Parli for helping to organize this effort.  ...
