Pre-trained Model for Chinese Word Segmentation with Meta Learning

10/23/2020 ∙ by Zhen Ke, et al. ∙ 0

Recent researches show that pre-trained models such as BERT (Devlin et al., 2019) are beneficial for Chinese Word Segmentation tasks. However, existing approaches usually finetune pre-trained models directly on a separate downstream Chinese Word Segmentation corpus. These recent methods don't fully utilize the prior knowledge of existing segmentation corpora, and don't regard the discrepancy between the pre-training tasks and the downstream Chinese Word Segmentation tasks. In this work, we propose a Pre-Trained Model for Chinese Word Segmentation, which can be abbreviated as PTM-CWS. PTM-CWS model employs a unified architecture for different segmentation criteria, and is pre-trained on a joint multi-criteria corpus with meta learning algorithm. Empirical results show that our PTM-CWS model can utilize the existing prior segmentation knowledge, reduce the discrepancy between the pre-training tasks and the downstream Chinese Word Segmentation tasks, and achieve new state-of-the-art performance on twelve Chinese Word Segmentation corpora.
