drop

  • Description:

With system performance on existing reading comprehension benchmarks nearing or surpassing human performance, we need a new, hard dataset that improves systems' capabilities to actually read paragraphs of text. DROP is a crowdsourced, adversarially-created, 96k-question benchmark, in which a system must resolve references in a question, perhaps to multiple input positions, and perform discrete operations over them (such as addition, counting, or sorting). These operations require a much more comprehensive understanding of the content of paragraphs than what was necessary for prior datasets.
