The Lower The Simpler: Simplifying Hierarchical Recurrent Models

To improve the training efficiency of hierarchical recurrent models without compromising their performance, we propose a strategy named as `the lower the simpler', which is to simplify the baseline models by making the lower layers simpler than the upper layers. We carry out this strategy to simplify two typical hierarchical recurrent models, namely Hierarchical Recurrent Encoder-Decoder (HRED) and R-NET, whose basic building block is GRU... (read more)
