Red Dragon AI at TextGraphs 2020 Shared Task: LIT : LSTM-Interleaved Transformer for Multi-Hop Explanation Ranking

12/28/2020 ∙ by Yew Ken Chia, et al. ∙ 14

Explainable question answering for science questions is a challenging task that requires multi-hop inference over a large set of fact sentences. To counter the limitations of methods that view each query-document pair in isolation, we propose the LSTM-Interleaved Transformer which incorporates cross-document interactions for improved multi-hop ranking. The LIT architecture can leverage prior ranking positions in the re-ranking setting. Our model is competitive on the current leaderboard for the TextGraphs 2020 shared task, achieving a test-set MAP of 0.5607, and would have gained third place had we submitted before the competition deadline. Our code implementation is made available at
