Debate topic expansion

  • Given a debate topic, it is often to make an expansion of the topic, the reasons can be the followings: (1) The scope of the debate topic is too shallow and we eager to discuss more. (2) A debate topic is sometimes related to the others and the discussion will not be complete when we do not discuss the others as well. (3) We may want to discuss the particular concept or the core the debate topic. It's thus meaningful to build a model in order to find the expansions of the topics. IBM Research Team has proposed a method to expand the boundary and find the expansion topics of the given debate topics in 2019. There are two types of topic expansions in their paper, consistent and contrastive expansions. We focus on the consistent expansions. Consistent expansions are defined as the expansions that expand our topics in a positive way or at least neutral. The main objective of this paper is to follow and examine the steps of IBM Research Team's idea and since the original discusses the model in english, we would like to implement a topic expansion model with 7 steps, including pattern extraction, filtering, training, etc, in another language (german) using translator and compare the result between different models to propose the final german model at the end.
