  2. 2. Few-shot Question Generation with Prompt-based Learning

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för lingvistik och filologi

    Author : Yongchao Wu; [2022]
    Keywords : Nautral Lanugage Processing; Question Generation; Neural Networks; Prompt-based Learning; Language Models;

    Abstract : Question generation (QG), which automatically generates good-quality questions from a piece of text, is capable of lowering the cost of the manual composition of questions. Recently Question generation has attracted increasing interest for its ability to supply a large number of questions for developing conversation systems and educational applications, as well as corpus development for natural language processing (NLP) research tasks, such as question answering and reading comprehension.
