MS MARCO DataSets

First released at NIPS 2016 the MS MARCO dataset was an ambitious, real-world Machine Reading Comprehension Dataset. Since then we have been slowly improving the existing QA datasets and releasing new datasets. How does your model perform?

1. UnAnnounced Dataset Coming Soon

2. Given a session with 2-n queries with one query being masked, predict the masked query(Conversational Search).

3. Given a query and a corpus of 8.8m passages, rank the passages by relevance. Use either the full corpus or start with BM25s top 1000(Ranking)

4. Given a query and 10 passages provide the best answer avaible based(Q&A). The target answers in the dataset files are 'answers'

5. Given a query and 10 passages provide the best answer avaible in natural language that could be used by a smart device/digital assistant(Q&A + Natural Language Generation). The target answers in the dataset files are 'wellFormedAnswers'
