As NLP research attracts public attention and excitement, it becomes increasingly important for it to be accessible to a broad audience. As the research community works to democratize NLP, it remains unclear whether beginners to the field can easily apply the latest developments. To understand their needs, we conducted a study with 93 students in a...
Preprint
Language-enabled AI systems can answer complex, multi-hop questions to high accuracy, but supporting answers with evidence is a more challenging task which is important for the transparency and trustworthiness to users. Prior work in this area typically makes a trade-off between efficiency and accuracy; state-of-the-art deep neural network systems...
Preprint
Large-scale, pre-trained language models (LMs) have achieved human-level performance on a breadth of language understanding tasks. However, evaluations only based on end task performance shed little light on machines' true ability in language understanding and reasoning. In this paper, we highlight the importance of evaluating the underlying reason...
Preprint
As large-scale, pre-trained language models achieve human-level and superhuman accuracy on existing language understanding tasks, statistical bias in benchmark data and probing studies have recently called into question their true capabilities. For a more informative evaluation than accuracy on text classification tasks can offer, we propose evalua...
Preprint
Embodied instruction following is a challenging problem requiring an agent to infer a sequence of primitive actions to achieve a goal environment state from complex language and visual inputs. Action Learning From Realistic Environments and Directives (ALFRED) is a recently proposed benchmark for this problem consisting of step-by-step natural lang...

In the NLP community, recent years have seen a surge of research activities that address machines' ability to perform deep language understanding which goes beyond what is explicitly stated in text, rather relying on reasoning and knowledge of the world. Many benchmark tasks and datasets have been created to support the development and evaluation o...
