CoQA dataset

What is CoQA Dataset?

The CoQA (Conversational Question Answering) dataset is a large-scale dataset for developing conversational question answering systems. CoQA has over 127,000 questions and answers from over 8000 discussions. The CoQA challenge aims to assess machines' capacity to comprehend a written passage and respond to a series of interconnected questions that emerge during a conversation.

How to use CoQA Dataset with PyTorch and TensorFlow in Python

Train a model on CoQA dataset with PyTorch in Python

Let's use Hub's built-in PyTorch one-line dataloader to connect the data to the compute:
dataloader = ds.pytorch(num_workers=0, batch_size=4, shuffle=False)

Train a model on CoQA dataset with TensorFlow in Python

dataloader = ds.tensorflow()

CoQA Dataset FAQs

What is CoQA dataset for Python?
CoQA has 127,000+ questions and answers from 8000+ discussions. Conversations are between two people and are in the form of questions and answers regarding a passage. The questions are conversational, the answers can be free-form text, and each answer includes an evidence subsequence marked in the passage and the passages from seven different domains.

What is the CoQA dataset used for?

The CoQA challenge aims to assess machines' capacity to comprehend a written passage and respond to a series of interconnected questions that emerge during a conversation. This dataset is often used in the field of natural language processing.

How to use and download the CoQA dataset in Python?

Using the open-source package Activeloop Hub the CoQA dataset can quickly be loaded with just one line of code. See detailed instructions on how to load the CoQA dataset training subset and how to load the validation subset in Python.
