  • Interactive Learning of State Representation through Natural Language Instruction and Explanation

    One significant simplification in most previous work on robot learning is the closed-world assumption where the robot is assumed to know ahead of time a complete set of predicates describing the state of the physical world. However, robots are not likely to have a complete model of the world especially when learning a new task. To address this problem, this extended abstract gives a brief introduction to our on-going work that aims to enable the robot to acquire new state representations through language communication with humans.

  • Commonsense Reasoning for Natural Language Understanding: A Survey of Benchmarks, Resources, and Approaches

    Commonsense knowledge and commonsense reasoning are some of the main bottlenecks in machine intelligence. In the NLP community, many benchmark datasets and tasks have been created to address commonsense reasoning for language understanding. These tasks are designed to assess machines' ability to acquire and learn commonsense knowledge in order to reason and understand natural language text. As these tasks become instrumental and a driving force for commonsense research, this paper aims to provide an overview of existing tasks and benchmarks, knowledge resources, and learning and inference approaches toward commonsense reasoning for natural language understanding. Through this, our goal is to support a better understanding of the state of the art, its limitations, and future challenges.
