Teaching Machines to Classify from Natural Language Interactions
[Technical Report, Doctoral Thesis]
Carnegie Mellon University
Pagination or Media Count:
Humans routinely learn new concepts using natural language communications, even in scenarios with limited or no labeled examples. For example, a human can learn the concept of a phishing email from natural language explanations such as phishing emails often request your bank account number. On the other hand, purely inductive learning systems typically require a large collection of labeled data for learning such a concept. We believe that advances in Computational Linguistics and the growing ubiquity of computing devices together can enable people to teach computers classification tasks using natural language interactions.
