Language Modeling, Lexical Translation, Reordering: The Training Process of NMT through the Lens of Classical SMT

no code implementations EMNLP 2021 Elena Voita, Rico Sennrich, Ivan Titov

Differently from the traditional statistical MT that decomposes the translation task into distinct separately learned components, neural machine translation uses a single neural network to model the entire translation process.

Unsupervised Discovery of Interpretable Latent Manipulations in Language VAEs

no code implementations1 Jan 2021 Max Ryabinin, Artem Babenko, Elena Voita

In this work, we make the first step towards unsupervised discovery of interpretable directions in language latent spaces.

Analyzing the Source and Target Contributions to Predictions in Neural Machine Translation

1 code implementation ACL 2021 Elena Voita, Rico Sennrich, Ivan Titov

We find that models trained with more data tend to rely on source information more and to have more sharp token contributions; the training process is non-monotonic with several stages of different nature.

Embedding Words in Non-Vector Space with Unsupervised Graph Learning

1 code implementation EMNLP 2020 Max Ryabinin, Sergei Popov, Liudmila Prokhorenkova, Elena Voita

We adopt a recent method learning a representation of data in the form of a differentiable weighted graph and use it to modify the GloVe training algorithm.

Information-Theoretic Probing with Minimum Description Length

2 code implementations EMNLP 2020 Elena Voita, Ivan Titov

Instead, we propose an alternative to the standard probes, information-theoretic probing with minimum description length (MDL).

Sequence Modeling with Unconstrained Generation Order

1 code implementation NeurIPS 2019 Dmitrii Emelianenko, Elena Voita, Pavel Serdyukov

The dominant approach to sequence generation is to produce a sequence in some predefined order, e. g. left to right.

The Bottom-up Evolution of Representations in the Transformer: A Study with Machine Translation and Language Modeling Objectives

no code implementations IJCNLP 2019 Elena Voita, Rico Sennrich, Ivan Titov

In this work, we use canonical correlation analysis and mutual information estimators to study how information flows across Transformer layers and how this process depends on the choice of learning objective.

When a Good Translation is Wrong in Context: Context-Aware Machine Translation Improves on Deixis, Ellipsis, and Lexical Cohesion

1 code implementation ACL 2019 Elena Voita, Rico Sennrich, Ivan Titov

Though machine translation errors caused by the lack of context beyond one sentence have long been acknowledged, the development of context-aware NMT systems is hampered by several problems.

A Large-Scale Test Set for the Evaluation of Context-Aware Pronoun Translation in Neural Machine Translation

1 code implementation WS 2018 Mathias Müller, Annette Rios, Elena Voita, Rico Sennrich

We show that, while gains in BLEU are moderate for those systems, they outperform baselines by a large margin in terms of accuracy on our contrastive test set.

Context-Aware Neural Machine Translation Learns Anaphora Resolution

no code implementations ACL 2018 Elena Voita, Pavel Serdyukov, Rico Sennrich, Ivan Titov

Standard machine translation systems process sentences in isolation and hence ignore extra-sentential information, even though extended context can both prevent mistakes in ambiguous cases and improve translation coherence.
