To Understand Representation of Layer-aware Sequence Encoders as Multi-order-graph

01/16/2021 ∙ by Sufeng Duan, et al. ∙ 0

In this paper, we propose a unified explanation of representation for layer-aware neural sequence encoders, which regards the representation as a revisited multigraph called multi-order-graph (MoG), so that model encoding can be viewed as a processing to capture all subgraphs in MoG. The relationship reflected by Multi-order-graph, called n-order dependency, can present what existing simple directed graph explanation cannot present. Our proposed MoG explanation allows to precisely observe every step of the generation of representation, put diverse relationship such as syntax into a unifiedly depicted framework. Based on the proposed MoG explanation, we further propose a graph-based self-attention network empowered Graph-Transformer by enhancing the ability of capturing subgraph information over the current models. Graph-Transformer accommodates different subgraphs into different groups, which allows model to focus on salient subgraphs. Result of experiments on neural machine translation tasks show that the MoG-inspired model can yield effective performance improvement.
