Better than BERT but Worse than Baseline

05/12/2021 ∙ by Boxiang Liu, et al. ∙ 0

This paper compares BERT-SQuAD and Ab3P on the Abbreviation Definition Identification (ADI) task. ADI inputs a text and outputs short forms (abbreviations/acronyms) and long forms (expansions). BERT with reranking improves over BERT without reranking but fails to reach the Ab3P rule-based baseline. What is BERT missing? Reranking introduces two new features: charmatch and freq. The first feature identifies opportunities to take advantage of character constraints in acronyms and the second feature identifies opportunities to take advantage of frequency constraints across documents.
