Abstract : The domain of artificial intelligence revolutionizes the way in which humans interact with machines. Machine comprehension is one of the latest fields under natural language processing that holds the capability for huge improvement in artificial intelligence. Machine comprehension technique gives systems the ability to understand a passage given by user and answer questions asked from it, which is an evolved version of traditional question answering technique. Machine comprehension is a main technique that falls under the category of natural language understanding, which exposes the amount of understanding required for a model to find the area of interest from a passage. The scope for the implementation of this technique is very high in India due to the availability of different regional languages. This work focused on the incorporation of machine comprehension technique in code-mixed Hindi language. A detailed comparison study on the performance of dataset in several deep learning approaches including End to End Memory Network, Dynamic Memory Network, Recurrent Neural Network, Long Short-Term Memory Network and Gated Recurrent Unit are evaluated. The best suited model for the dataset used is identified from the comparison study. A new architecture is proposed in this work by combining two of the best performing networks. To improve the model with respect to various ways of answering questions from a passage the natural language processing technique of distributed word representation was performed on the best model identified. The model was improved by applying pre-trained fastText embeddings for word representations. This is the first implementation of machine comprehension models in code-mixed Hindi language using deep neural networks. The work analyses the performance of all five models implemented, which will be helpful for future researches on Machine Comprehension technique in code-mixed Indian languages. © Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2019.
