This document aims to track the progress in Natural Language Processing (NLP) and give an overviewof the state-of-the-art (SOTA) across the most common NLP tasks and their corresponding datasets.
It aims to cover both traditional and core NLP tasks such as dependency parsing and part-of-speech taggingas well as more recent ones such as reading comprehension and natural language inference. The main objectiveis to provide the reader with a quick overview of benchmark datasets and the state-of-the-art for theirtask of interest, which serves as a stepping stone for further research. To this end, if there is a place where results for a task are already published and regularly maintained, such as a public leaderboard,the reader will be pointed there.

Results Results reported in published papers are preferred; an exception may be made for influential preprints.
Datasets Datasets should have been used for evaluation in at least one published paper besides the one that introduced the dataset.
Code We recommend to add a link to an implementation if available. You can add a
Code column (see below) to the table if it does not exist.In the
Code column, indicate an official implementation with Official.If an unofficial implementation is available, use Link (see below).If no implementation is available, you can leave the cell empty.
If you would like to add a new result, you can just click on the small edit button in the top-rightcorner of the file for the respective task (see below).
This allows you to edit the file in Markdown. Simply add a row to the corresponding table in thesame format. Make sure that the table stays sorted (with the best result on top). After you’ve made your change, make sure that the table still looks ok by clicking on the“Preview changes” tab at the top of the page. If everything looks good, go to the bottom of the page,where you see the below form.
Add a name for your proposed change, an optional description, indicate that you would like to“Create a new branch for this commit and start a pull request”, and click on “Propose file change”.
For adding a new dataset or task, you can also follow the steps above. Alternatively, you can fork the repository.In both cases, follow the steps below:
|Model||Score||Paper / Source||Code|
These are tasks and datasets that are still missing:
You can extract all the data into a structured, machine-readable JSON format with parsed tasks, descriptions and SOTA tables.
The instructions are in structured/README.md.
