Path-Generator-QA

This is a Pytorch implementation for the EMNLP 2020 (Findings) paper: Connecting the Dots: A Knowledgeable Path Generator for Commonsense Question Answering [arxiv][project page]

Code folders:

(1) learning-generator: conduct path sampling and then train the path generator.

(2) commonse-qa: use the generator to generate paths and then train the qa system on task dataset.

(3) A-Commonsense-Path-Generator-for-Connecting-Entities.ipynb: The notebook illustrating how to use our proposed generator to connect a pair of entities with a commonsense relational path.

Part of this code and instruction rely on our another project [code][arxiv]. Please cite both of our works if you use this code. Thanks!

Dependencies

  • Python >= 3.6
  • PyTorch == 1.1
  • transformers == 2.8.0
  • dgl == 0.3 (GPU version)
  • networkx == 2.3

Run the following commands to create a conda environment:

conda create -n pgqa python=3.6
source activate pgqa
conda install pytorch torchvision cudatoolkit=10.0 -c pytorch
pip install dgl-cu100
pip install transformers==2.8.0 tqdm networkx==2.3 nltk spacy==2.1.6
python -m spacy download en

For training a path generator

cd learning-generator
cd data
unzip conceptnet.zip
cd ..
python sample_path_rw.py

After path sampling, shuffle the resulting data './data/sample_path/sample_path.txt' and then split them into train.txt, dev.txt and test.txt by ratio of 0.9:0.05:0.05 under './data/sample_path/'

Then you can start to train the path generator by running

# the first arg is for specifying which gpu to use
./run.sh $gpu_device

The checkpoint of the path generator would be stored in './checkpoints/model.ckpt'. Move it to '../commonsense-qa/saved_models/pretrain_generator'. So far, we are done with training the generator.

Alternatively, you can also download our well-trained path generator checkpoint.

For training a commonsense qa system

1. Download Data

First, you need to download all the necessary data in order to train the model:

cd commonsense-qa
bash scripts/download.sh

2. Preprocess

To preprocess the data, run:

python preprocess.py

3. Using the path generator to connect question-answer entities

(Modify ./config/path_generate.config to specify the dataset and gpu device)

./scripts/run_generate.sh

4. Commonsense QA system training

bash scripts/run_main.sh ./config/csqa.config

Training process and final evaluation results would be stored in './saved_models/'
