Non-Autoregressive Semantic Parsing for Compositional Task-Oriented Dialog

04/11/2021 ∙ by Arun Babu, et al. ∙ 3

Semantic parsing using sequence-to-sequence models allows parsing of deeper representations compared to traditional word tagging based models. In spite of these advantages, widespread adoption of these models for real-time conversational use cases has been stymied by higher compute requirements and thus higher latency. In this work, we propose a non-autoregressive approach to predict semantic parse trees with an efficient seq2seq model architecture. By combining non-autoregressive prediction with convolutional neural networks, we achieve significant latency gains and parameter size reduction compared to traditional RNN models. Our novel architecture achieves up to an 81 in latency on TOP dataset and retains competitive performance to non-pretrained models on three different semantic parsing datasets.
