KAIST AI Researchers Introduce KTRL+F: A Knowledge-Augmented in-Document Search Task that Necessitates Real-Time Identification of Semantic Targets within a Document

KTRL+F task is a knowledge-augmented in-document search problem that requires real-time identification of semantic targets within a document, incorporating external knowledge through a single natural query. Existing models face challenges such as hallucinations, low latency, and difficulty leveraging superficial knowledge. To address this, researchers from KAIST AI and Samsung Research propose a Knowledge-Augmented Phrase Retrieval model, striking a balance between speed and performance. 

Unlike conventional Machine Reading Comprehension tasks, KTRL+F evaluates models based on their ability to utilize information beyond the provided context. The proposed model effectively balances speed and performance by incorporating external knowledge embedding in phrase embedding. The model enhances contextual knowledge, enabling accurate and comprehensive search and retrieval within the document for improved information access.

KTRL+F addresses the limitations of conventional lexical matching tools and machine reading comprehension. It focuses on identifying semantic targets within a document in real time, leveraging external knowledge through a single natural query. Evaluation metrics assess the model’s ability to find all semantic marks, utilize external commands, and operate in real-time. KTRL+F aims to enhance information access efficiency through improved in-document search capabilities.

KTRL+F addresses challenges in the real-time identification of semantic targets. The model balances speed and performance by augmenting external knowledge embedding in phrase embedding. Various baselines, including generative, extractive, and retrieval-based models, are analyzed using metrics like List EM, List Overlap F1, and Robustness Score. The incorporation of external knowledge is assessed, and a user study validates the enhanced search experience achieved by solving KTRL+F.

Generative baselines leverage pre-trained language models effectively, but scaling up capacity only sometimes improves performance. The SequenceTagger, an extractive baseline, must catch up due to its inability to use external knowledge. The proposed model balances speed and performance by augmenting superficial knowledge embedding in phrase embedding. A user study confirms that users can reduce search time and queries with the model, validating its effectiveness in enhancing the search experience.

In conclusion, KTRL+F introduces a knowledge-augmented in-document search task and proposes a Knowledge-Augmented Phrase Retrieval model. The model effectively balances speed and performance by augmenting external knowledge embedding in phrase embedding. The scalability and practicality of KTRL+F suggest opportunities for future advancements in information retrieval and knowledge augmentation.

Future research directions include exploring an end-to-end trainable architecture for real-time processing that retrieves and integrates external knowledge into a searchable index. Extending KTRL+F to incorporate timely knowledge, such as news, and investigating the significance of high-quality superficial knowledge by comparing models with different entity linkers are suggested. Further evaluation of the knowledge aggregation design in the proposed model and additional experiments to comprehend baseline models and their limitations in KTRL+F are recommended.
