Bidirectional Attention Flow for Machine Comprehension

  title={Bidirectional Attention Flow for Machine Comprehension},
  author={Min Joon Seo and Aniruddha Kembhavi and Ali Farhadi and Hannaneh Hajishirzi},
Machine Comprehension (MC), answering questions about a given context, requires modeling complex interactions between the context and the query. Recently, attention mechanisms have been successfully extended to MC. Typically these mechanisms use attention to summarize the query and context into a single vector, couple attentions temporally, and often form a uni-directional attention. In this paper we introduce the Bi-Directional Attention Flow (BIDAF) network, a multi-stage hierarchical process… CONTINUE READING
