Delete, Retrieve, Generate: A Simple Approach to Sentiment and Style Transfer (NAACL-HLT 2018)

The authors propose a new method for text attribute transfer that consists of three steps:

  1. extract content words by deleting phrases associated with the sentence's original attribute value;
  2. retrieve new phrases associated with target attribute;
  3. combine them using a neural model.

The method generates grammatical and appropriate responses in 22% more cases than the state-of-the-art. The paper also has an accompanying worksheet.
