One Billion Word Benchmark for Measuring Progress in Statistical Language Modeling

11 Dec 2013Ciprian ChelbaTomas MikolovMike SchusterQi GeThorsten BrantsPhillipp KoehnTony Robinson

We propose a new benchmark corpus to be used for measuring progress in statistical language modeling. With almost one billion words of training data, we hope this benchmark will be useful to quickly evaluate novel language modeling techniques, and to compare their contribution when combined with other advanced techniques...
