Gender and Representation Bias in GPT-3 Generated StoriesGPT-3 Generated Stories
Li Lucy | David Bamman
Proceedings of the Third Workshop on Narrative Understanding

Using topic modeling and lexicon-based word similarity, we find that stories generated by GPT-3 exhibit many known gender stereotypes. Generated stories depict different topics and descriptions depending on GPT-3’s perceived gender of the character in a prompt, with feminine characters more likely to be associated with family and appearance, and described as less powerful than masculine characters, even when associated with high power verbs in a prompt. Our study raises questions on how one can avoid unintended social biases when using large language models for storytelling.

The Labeled Segmentation of Printed Books
Lara McConnaughey | Jennifer Dai | David Bamman
Proceedings of the 2017 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing

We introduce the task of book structure labeling : segmenting and assigning a fixed category (such as Table of Contents, Preface, Index) to the document structure of printed books. We manually annotate the page-level structural categories for a large dataset totaling 294,816 pages in 1,055 books evenly sampled from 1750-1922, and present empirical results comparing the performance of several classes of models. The best-performing model, a bidirectional LSTM with rich features, achieves an overall accuracy of 95.8 and a class-balanced macro F-score of 71.4.

Adversarial Training for Relation Extraction
Yi Wu | David Bamman | Stuart Russell
Proceedings of the 2017 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing

Adversarial training is a mean of regularizing classification algorithms by generating adversarial noise to the training data. We apply adversarial training in relation extraction within the multi-instance multi-label learning framework. We evaluate various neural network architectures on two different datasets. Experimental results demonstrate that adversarial training is generally effective for both CNN and RNN models and significantly improves the precision of predicted relations.
