Benchmarks

This page contains a variety of benchmark results of various features on various domains. To keep the size of this page in check, we remove obsolete measurements (either abandoned

Each dataset has train and test splits. Our primary comparison factor is AP Recall (APR) and Mean Reciprocal Rank (MRR) on the test split (see below). (When talking to outsiders, accuracy-at-one is the easiest measure to use, but it is much more noisy than MRR, so it's brittle for day-to-day evaluation.) Unless otherwise specified, our models are always retrained on the train split before measuring accuracy on the test split.

We are benchmarking on several datasets from two basic families. The TREC-based questions are general factoid questions of wide variety and character, answerable primarily from Wikipedia:

  • curated (https://github.com/brmson/dataset-factoid-curated) is a cleaned up version of the TREC dataset with some IRC-based questions from early user testing also added in. This is our primary "general QA" benchmark.
  • large2180 (in dev branch of https://github.com/brmson/dataset-factoid-curated) is a larger version of the TREC dataset, that mixes in some noisy question to the curated dataset in the interest of having more data to train on. We use this dataset to test how our machine learning scales up.
  • trecnew-raw (in dev branch of https://github.com/brmson/dataset-factoid-curated) has just a test split and contains factoid questions like in curated, but not their cleaned up and filtered version, allowing a more realistic comparison with the "old" programs from the TREC challenges. We rarely use this dataset, just for some final benchmarks when writing papers.

Raw measurements for various historical commits are available from http://pasky.or.cz/dev/brmson/yodaqa-eval/ ...

The other family of datasets is originally based on WebQuestions, exhibiting more monotonous questions modelled around the Freebase knowledge base and always asking for entities (not for example for numbers):

Raw measurements for various historical commits are available from http://pasky.or.cz/dev/brmson/yodaqa-movies-eval/ ...

Typically, our tests are done using data/eval/train-and-eval.sh. When we need to benchmark without retraining, we use something like:

data/eval/_multistage-traineval.sh . trecnew-raw-test 0 0

Each split+commit combination results in three lines of data/eval/tsvout-stats.sh output. The important line for us is the one with the commit prefixed by u as that's the initial pipeline stage (followup stages create user-friendly output, but typicaly senselessly overfit).

The format of each line is:

dataset-split commit  commitdate Commit message          ans/irr/tot ACC1%/ APR% mrr 0.mrr avgtime xyz

ans and ACC1 is the accuracy-at-one --- number (and percentage) of questions where the top answer is correct (since we attempt to answer all questions, this would be precision@100 in DeepQA parlance). APR is Answer Production Recall, i.e. number of questions where the correct answer is generated as a hypothesis. MRR is the mean of reciprocial rank over all questions; a question with top answer correct will have RR=1, a question with second answer correct will have RR=0.5, etc. Ignore the avgtime, it's currently garbage, unfortunately.

Baselines

TREC-based baseline

We use the master branch to measure TREC-based QA.

WebQuestions-based baseline

We primarily use the d/movies branch for WebQuestions style questions - this branch has disabled enwiki as a data source since our primary motivation in the movies-based questions is QA just on structured knowledge bases.

Also note that the pipeline phase1 (v- prefixed commits) actually seems non-overfitted here. We didn't factor that into our reports or benchmark instructions yet --- for simplicity to keep the common approach for both TREC and WQ based scenarios. We'll probably drop this soon, though.

Let's explore the impact of CRF a little further, comparing v1.1 that has disabled NP-based answer hypothesis generator (7d7b24d) with one that has in addition the CRF disabled (5a7ae5e) --- then, we can finally see a small MRR and APR drop showing that CRF contributes something:

So, could it be that CRF is useless with the other generators mixed in? That is curious, let's try v1.1 with retrained CRF model --- oh, curated APR 72.%, MRR 0.439; large2180 APR 74.8%, MRR 0.411; oops:

So the whole issue is that at some point, we had to retrain this and forgot. It is too late to fix this for v1.1, so we will tag the retrained version as v1.2 right after that.
