Deep contextualized word representations
Petersy, Mark Neumanny, Mohit Iyyery, Matt Gardnery,
Kenton Lee, Luke Zettlemoyery
We introduce a new type of deep
contextualized word representation that models both (1) complex characteristics
of word use (e.g., syntax and semantics), and (2) how these uses vary across
linguistic contexts (i.e., to model polysemy). Our word vectors are learned
functions of the internal states of a deep bidirectional language model (biLM),
which is pretrained on a large text corpus. We show that these representations
can be easily added to existing models and significantly improve the state of
the art across six challenging NLP problems, including question answering,
textual entailment and sentiment analysis. We also present an analysis showing
that exposing the deep internals of the pre-trained network is crucial,
allowing downstream models to mix different types of semi-supervision signals.
