Looking Beyond the Surface: A Challenge Set for Reading Comprehension over Multiple Sentences
TLDR
We present a reading comprehension challenge in which questions can only be answered by taking into account information from multiple sentences, and demonstrate the difficulty of this challenge, despite a high human performance. Expand

Cross-lingual Models of Word Embeddings: An Empirical Comparison
TLDR
We perform an extensive evaluation of four popular approaches of inducing cross-lingual embeddings, each requiring a different form of supervision, on four typographically different language pairs. Expand

Learning from Explicit and Implicit Supervision Jointly For Algebra Word Problems
TLDR
We propose a novel structured-output learning algorithm that aims to learn from both explicit (e.g., equations) and implicit supervision signals jointly. Expand

Attention Interpretability Across NLP Tasks
TLDR
The attention layer in a neural network model provides insights into the model's reasoning behind its prediction, which are usually criticized for being opaque. Expand

Robust Cross-lingual Hypernymy Detection using Dependency Context
TLDR
We propose BISPARSE-DEP, a family of unsupervised approaches for cross-lingual hypernymy detection, which learns sparse, bilingual word embeddings based on dependency contexts. Expand

Equation Parsing : Mapping Sentences to Grounded Equations
TLDR
We introduce the problem of Equation Parsing -- given a sentence, identify noun phrases which represent variables, and generate the mathematical equation expressing the relation described in the sentence. Expand
