Unsupervised Neural Machine Translation Initialized by Unsupervised Statistical Machine Translation

30 Oct 2018Benjamin MarieAtsushi Fujita

Recent work achieved remarkable results in training neural machine translation (NMT) systems in a fully unsupervised way, with new and dedicated architectures that rely on monolingual corpora only. In this work, we propose to define unsupervised NMT (UNMT) as NMT trained with the supervision of synthetic bilingual data... (read more)
