Learning to Learn Semantic Parsers from Natural Language Supervision

Igor Labutov, Bishan Yang, Tom Mitchell
2018 Proceedings of the 2018 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing  
As humans, we often rely on language to learn language. For example, when corrected in a conversation, we may learn from that correction, over time improving our language fluency.  ...  We construct a novel dataset of natural language feedback in a conversational setting, and show that our method is effective at learning a semantic parser from such natural language supervision.  ...  Our work is similar in that natural language is used as additional supervision during learning, however, our natural language annotations consist of user feedback on system predictions instead of explanations  ...
