Speaker March 30: Joey Öhman (AI Sweden/KBLab), Fredrik Carlsson (RISE) and Severine Verlinden (AI Sweden): Deep Dive Into Controllable Text Generation
Abstract: The introduction of immensely large language models has rejuvenated the interest in open-ended text generation. However, controlling the generation of these transformers is at large an unsolved problem, as is the evaluation of such generated text. This talk covers the field of controllable text generation, with a focus on our recently accepted ACL paper which proposes both a powerful method for steering the generative process over time and a new evaluation task for controllable text generation.
