Enhancing Paragraph Generation with a Latent Language Diffusion Model

In the fast-evolving world of natural language processing (NLP), there is a strong demand for generating coherent and controlled text, as referenced in the work Toward Controlled Generation of Text. Traditional autoregressive models such as GPT, which have long been the industry standard, possess inherent limitations that sometimes manifest as repetitive and low-quality outputs, as seen in the work The Curious Case of Neural Text Degeneration. This is primarily due to a phenomenon known as "exposure bias," as seen in the work Scheduled Sampling for Sequence Prediction with Recurrent Neural Networks. This imperfection arises due to a mismatch between how these models are trained and their actual use during inference, often leading to error accumulation during text generation.
