Data format

To run the model, data directory must be located in the root directory. Under data, the following files must exist:

  • voca_40000.txt: Vocabulary text file, with each line being a word.
  • V40000_[DOMAIN]_[SPLIT].p: Pickled input data file (details below). Domains are specified in A split is either train, val, or test.

Each pickle file is a json list (array) of tuples (op_node, comments). op_node is the OH's post of a discussion, and comments is the list of comments that have a delta label. op_node and comment have the following attributes:

  • sentence_emb: Input sentence embedding pre-trained by Conneau et al.'s model.
  • node_tfidf (only for comment): TFIDF vector.
  • tfidf_interact (only for comment): Word overlap vector.
  • delta (only for comment): True delta (1 or 0).
