Conformer-Kernel with Query Term Independence for Document Retrieval

20 Jul 2020Bhaskar MitraSebastian HofstatterHamed ZamaniNick Craswell

The Transformer-Kernel (TK) model has demonstrated strong reranking performance on the TREC Deep Learning benchmark---and can be considered to be an efficient (but slightly less effective) alternative to BERT-based ranking models. In this work, we extend the TK architecture to the full retrieval setting by incorporating the query term independence assumption... (read more)
