Alignment-Based Compositional Semantics for Instruction Following

  title={Alignment-Based Compositional Semantics for Instruction Following},
  author={Jacob Andreas and Dan Klein},
This paper describes an alignment-based model for interpreting natural language instructions in context. We approach instruction following as a search over plans, scoring sequences of actions conditioned on structured observations of text and the environment. By explicitly modeling both the low-level compositional structure of individual actions and the high-level structure of full plans, we are able to learn both grounded representations of sentence meaning and pragmatic constraints on… CONTINUE READING
