Unified Question Generation with Continual Lifelong Learning [article]

Wei Yuan, Hongzhi Yin, Tieke He, Tong Chen, Qiufeng Wang, Lizhen Cui
2022 pre-print
To solve the problems, we propose a model named Unified-QG based on lifelong learning techniques, which can continually learn QG tasks across different datasets and formats.  ...  Question Generation (QG), as a challenging Natural Language Processing task, aims at generating questions based on given answers and context.  ...  Experimental results show that our solution, Unified-QG, can continually learn question generation across different datasets and formats.  ...

Learning Generalized Temporal Abstractions across Both Action and Perception

Khimya Khetarpal
In my research, I aim to answer the following question: How should an agent efficiently represent, learn and use knowledge of the world in continual tasks?  ...  Analogous to temporally extended actions, we propose learning temporally extended perception.

LFPT5: A Unified Framework for Lifelong Few-shot Language Learning Based on Prompt Tuning of T5 [article]

Chengwei Qin, Shafiq Joty
2022 arXiv   pre-print
In this work, we define this more challenging yet practical problem as Lifelong Few-shot Language Learning (LFLL) and propose a unified framework for it based on prompt tuning of T5.  ...  Considering that humans can continually learn new tasks from a handful of examples, we expect the models also to be able to generalize well on new few-shot tasks without forgetting the previous ones.  ...  Recently, Sun et al. (2019) proposes LAMOL, a general framework designed for lifelong language learning (LLL), where the model needs to continually learn from different domains as well as different types  ...
