Text classification technology is widely used in various industries such as dialogue intention recognition, bill archiving, and event detection. However, there are many challenges in industrial-level text classification practices, including diverse tasks, limited data availability and label transfer difficulty. To address these issues, UTC models text classification as a matching task between labels and text, based on the idea of Unified Semantic Matching (USM). Thus, it can handle multiple classification tasks with a single model, reducing development and machine costs and achieving good zero/few-shot transfer performance.
