Multi-Domain Adaptation in Neural Machine Translation with Dynamic Sampling Strategies

EAMT 2022  ·  Minh-Quang Pham, Josep Crego, François Yvon ·

Building effective Neural Machine Translation models often implies accommodating diverse sets of heterogeneous data so as to optimize performance for the domain(s) of interest. Such multi-source / multi-domain adaptation problems are typically approached through instance selection or reweighting strategies, based on a static assessment of the relevance of training instances with respect to the task at hand. In this paper, we study dynamic data selection strategies that are able to automatically re-evaluate the usefulness of data samples and to evolve a data selection policy in the course of training. Based on the results of multiple experiments, we show that such methods constitute a generic framework to automatically and effectively handle a variety of real-world situations, from multi-source domain adaptation to multi-domain learning and unsupervised domain adaptation.
