We find that hyper-adapters are more parameter efficient than regular adapters, reaching the same performance with up to 12 times less parameters.
In this work, we introduce a two-stage curriculum training framework for NMT where we fine-tune a base NMT model on subsets of data, selected by both deterministic scoring using pre-trained methods and online scoring that considers prediction scores of the emerging NMT model.

In this work, we train multilingual autoregressive language models on a balanced corpus covering a diverse set of languages, and study their few- and zero-shot learning capabilities in a wide range of tasks.

Mixture of Experts layers (MoEs) enable efficient scaling of language models through conditional computation.
Multi-task learning with an unbalanced data distribution skews model learning towards high resource tasks, especially when model capacity is fixed and fully shared across all tasks.
Sparse layers can dramatically improve the efficiency of training and inference by routing each token to specialized expert modules that contain only a small fraction of the model parameters.
Pre-training models on vast quantities of unlabeled data has emerged as an effective approach to improving accuracy on many NLP tasks.

Existing work in translation demonstrated the potential of massively multilingual machine translation by training a single model able to translate between any pair of languages.
