Par4Sim -- Adaptive Paraphrasing for Text Simplification

06/21/2018 ∙ by Seid Muhie Yimam, et al. ∙ 0

Learning from a real-world data stream and continuously updating the model without explicit supervision is a new challenge for NLP applications with machine learning components. In this work, we have developed an adaptive learning system for text simplification, which improves the underlying learning-to-rank model from usage data, i.e. how users have employed the system for the task of simplification. Our experimental result shows that, over a period of time, the performance of the embedded paraphrase ranking model increases steadily improving from a score of 62.88 NDCG@10 evaluation metrics. To our knowledge, this is the first study where an NLP component is adaptively improved through usage.
