AllenNLP is an open-source NLP research library by the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence, which is built on PyTorch (the library, not the institute). See here for more information. It is great to see models and libraries being made available to be investigated and probed. More than anything, such a showcase demonstrates that our models are at the mercy of any linguist, that they have a poor grasp of anything compositional, and that we still have a long way to go. The EMNLP 2017 workshop on building linguistically generalizable NLP systems deserves to be mentioned in this context.
