Constrained Language Models for Interactive Poem Generation

no code implementations LREC 2022 Andrei Popescu-Belis, Àlex Atrio, Valentin Minder, Aris Xanthos, Gabriel Luthier, Simon Mattei, Antonio Rodriguez

This paper describes a system for interactive poem generation, which combines neural language models (LMs) for poem generation with explicit constraints that can be set by users on form, topic, emotion, and rhyming scheme.

The IICT-Yverdon System for the WMT 2021 Unsupervised MT and Very Low Resource Supervised MT Task

no code implementations WMT (EMNLP) 2021 Àlex R. Atrio, Gabriel Luthier, Axel Fahy, Giorgos Vernikos, Andrei Popescu-Belis, Ljiljana Dolamic

We then present the application of this system to the 2021 task for low-resource supervised Upper Sorbian (HSB) to German translation, in both directions.


On the Interaction of Regularization Factors in Low-resource Neural Machine Translation

1 code implementation EAMT 2022 None Àlex R. Atrio, Andrei Popescu-Belis

We explore the roles and interactions of the hyper-parameters governing regularization, and propose a range of values applicable to low-resource neural machine translation.

Don't Rank, Combine! Combining Machine Translation Hypotheses Using Quality Estimation

no code implementations12 Jan 2024 Giorgos Vernikos, Andrei Popescu-Belis

Our method consistently improves translation quality in terms of COMET and BLEURT scores when applied to large language models (LLMs) used for translation (PolyLM, XGLM, Llama2, Mistral, ALMA, and Tower) and to multilingual translation models (NLLB), over five language pairs.

Small Batch Sizes Improve Training of Low-Resource Neural MT

no code implementations ICON 2021 Àlex R. Atrio, Andrei Popescu-Belis

We study the role of an essential hyper-parameter that governs the training of Transformers for neural machine translation in a low-resource setting: the batch size.

A Consolidated Dataset for Knowledge-based Question Generation using Predicate Mapping of Linked Data

no code implementations LREC 2020 Johanna Melly, Gabriel Luthier, Andrei Popescu-Belis

The new data set can be used to generate novel questions given an unseen Wikidata triple, by replacing the subjects of existing questions with the new one and then selecting the best candidate questions using semantic and syntactic criteria.

Integrating Weakly Supervised Word Sense Disambiguation into Neural Machine Translation

1 code implementation TACL 2018 Xiao Pu, Nikolaos Pappas, James Henderson, Andrei Popescu-Belis

We show that the concatenation of these vectors, and the use of a sense selection mechanism based on the weighted average of sense vectors, outperforms several baselines including sense-aware ones.

Machine Translation of Low-Resource Spoken Dialects: Strategies for Normalizing Swiss German

1 code implementation LREC 2018 Pierre-Edouard Honnet, Andrei Popescu-Belis, Claudiu Musat, Michael Baeriswyl

The goal of this work is to design a machine translation (MT) system for a low-resource family of dialects, collectively known as Swiss German, which are widely spoken in Switzerland but seldom written.
