DILL is a lab dedicated to the study of Data, Interpretability, Language and Learning, led by Swabha Swayamdipta. DILL is focused on automatically estimating the quality of datasets for models, efficient pretraining, and semi-automatically building datasets that help models learn better. We also emphasize on special aspects of language that affect dataset quality, such as subjectivity and ambiguity.
