Even though BERT has achieved successful performance improvements in various supervised learning tasks, BERT is still limited by repetitive inferences on unsupervised tasks for the computation of contextual language representations. To resolve this limitation, we propose a novel deep bidirectional language model called a Transformer-based Text Autoencoder (T-TA). The T-TA computes contextual language representations without repetition and displays the benefits of a deep bidirectional architecture, such as that of BERT. In computation time experiments in a CPU environment, the proposed T-TA performs over six times faster than the BERT-like model on a reranking task and twelve times faster on a semantic similarity task. Furthermore, the T-TA shows competitive or even better accuracies than those of BERT on the above tasks. Code is available at https://github.com/joongbo/tta.
This paper describes our system for SemEval-2019 Task 3: EmoContext, which aims to predict the emotion of the third utterance considering two preceding utterances in a dialogue. To address this challenge of predicting the emotion considering its context, we propose a Multi-View Turn-by-Turn (MVTT) model. Firstly, MVTT model generates vectors from each utterance using two encoders: word-level Bi-GRU encoder (WLE) and character-level CNN encoder (CLE). Then, MVTT grasps contextual information by combining the vectors and predict the emotion with the contextual information. We conduct experiments on the effect of vector encoding and vector combination. Our final MVTT model achieved 0.7634 microaveraged F1 score.
