his paper proposes Dyadic Memory Networks (DyMemNN), a novel extension of end-to-end memory networks (memNN) for aspect-based sentiment analysis (ABSA). Originally designed for question answering tasks, memNN operates via a memory selection operation in which relevant memory pieces are adaptively selected based on the input query. In the problem of ABSA, this is analogous to aspects and documents in which the relationship between each word in the document is compared with the aspect vector. In the standard memory networks, simple dot products or feed forward neural networks are used to model the relationship between aspect and words which lacks representation learning capability. As such, our dyadic memory networks ameliorates this weakness by enabling rich dyadic interactions between aspect and word embeddings by integrating either parameterized neural tensor compositions or holographic compositions into the memory selection operation. To this end, we propose two variations of our dyadic memory networks, namely the Tensor DyMemNN and Holo DyMemNN. Overall, our two models are end-to-end neural architectures that enable rich dyadic interaction between aspect and document which intuitively leads to better performance. Via extensive experiments, we show that our proposed models achieve the state-of-the-art performance and outperform many neural architectures across six benchmark datasets.
