We extensively evaluate GP on various benchmark datasets. Our extensive experiments demonstrate that GP can outperform the existing solution. Moreover, the experimental results show the efﬁcacy of the introduced loss function compared to softmax and entropy alternatives. experimental results show the efﬁcacy of the introduced loss function compared to softmax and entropy alternatives.

It is argued that it can be beneficial to design two distinct encoders to capture such two different types of information in the learning process, and proposed is the novel {\em table-sequence encoder} where two different encoder -- a table encoder and a sequence encoder are designed to help each other in the representation learning process.
