A Surprisingly Effective Fix for Deep Latent Variable Modeling of Text

This is PyTorch implementation of the following paper:

A Surprisingly Effective Fix for Deep Latent Variable Modeling of Text
Bohan Li*, Junxian He*, Graham Neubig, Taylor Berg-Kirkpatrick, Yiming Yang
EMNLP 2019

Please contact bohanl1@cs.cmu.edu if you have any questions.

Requirements

  • Python >= 3.6
  • PyTorch >= 1.0
  • pip install editdistance

Data

Datasets used in this paper can be downloaded with:

python prepare_data.py

Usage

Train a AE first

python text_beta.py \
    --dataset yahoo \
    --beta 0 \
    --lr 0.5

Train VAE with our method

ae_exp_dir=exp_yahoo_beta/yahoos_lr0.5_beta0.0_drop0.5
python text_anneal_fb.py \
    --dataset yahoo \
    --load_path ${ae_exp_dir}/model.pt \
    --reset_dec \
    --kl_start 0 \
    --warm_up 10 \
    --target_kl 8 \
    --fb 2 \
    --lr 0.5

Logs, models and samples would be saved into folder exp.
