Meta-Learning Adversarial Domain Adaptation Network for Few-Shot Text Classification

07/26/2021 ∙ by ChengCheng Han, et al. ∙ 0

Meta-learning has emerged as a trending technique to tackle few-shot text classification and achieved state-of-the-art performance. However, existing solutions heavily rely on the exploitation of lexical features and their distributional signatures on training data, while neglecting to strengthen the model's ability to adapt to new tasks. In this paper, we propose a novel meta-learning framework integrated with an adversarial domain adaptation network, aiming to improve the adaptive ability of the model and generate high-quality text embedding for new classes. Extensive experiments are conducted on four benchmark datasets and our method demonstrates clear superiority over the state-of-the-art models in all the datasets. In particular, the accuracy of 1-shot and 5-shot classification on the dataset of 20 Newsgroups is boosted from 52.1 respectively.
