Language Models are Few-Shot Learners

openai/gpt-3 NeurIPS 2020

By contrast, humans can generally perform a new language task from only a few examples or from simple instructions - something which current NLP systems still largely struggle to do.

Word Translation Without Parallel Data

facebookresearch/MUSE ICLR 2018

We finally describe experiments on the English-Esperanto low-resource language pair, on which there only exists a limited amount of parallel data, to show the potential impact of our method in fully unsupervised machine translation.

Cross-lingual Language Model Pretraining

huggingface/transformers NeurIPS 2019

On unsupervised machine translation, we obtain 34. 3 BLEU on WMT'16 German-English, improving the previous state of the art by more than 9 BLEU.

Phrase-Based & Neural Unsupervised Machine Translation

facebookresearch/UnsupervisedMT EMNLP 2018

Machine translation systems achieve near human-level performance on some languages, yet their effectiveness strongly relies on the availability of large amounts of parallel sentences, which hinders their applicability to the majority of language pairs.

Unsupervised Machine Translation Using Monolingual Corpora Only

facebookresearch/MUSE ICLR 2018

By learning to reconstruct in both languages from this shared feature space, the model effectively learns to translate without using any labeled data.

Unsupervised Translation of Programming Languages

facebookresearch/CodeGen NeurIPS 2020

We train our model on source code from open source GitHub projects, and show that it can translate functions between C++, Java, and Python with high accuracy.

MASS: Masked Sequence to Sequence Pre-training for Language Generation

microsoft/MASS 7 May 2019

Pre-training and fine-tuning, e. g., BERT, have achieved great success in language understanding by transferring knowledge from rich-resource pre-training task to the low/zero-resource downstream tasks.

Multilingual Denoising Pre-training for Neural Machine Translation

pytorch/fairseq 22 Jan 2020

This paper demonstrates that multilingual denoising pre-training produces significant performance gains across a wide variety of machine translation (MT) tasks.

A Probabilistic Formulation of Unsupervised Text Style Transfer

cindyxinyiwang/deep-latent-sequence-model ICLR 2020

Across all style transfer tasks, our approach yields substantial gains over state-of-the-art non-generative baselines, including the state-of-the-art unsupervised machine translation techniques that our approach generalizes.

Unsupervised Statistical Machine Translation

artetxem/vecmap EMNLP 2018

While modern machine translation has relied on large parallel corpora, a recent line of work has managed to train Neural Machine Translation (NMT) systems from monolingual corpora only (Artetxe et al., 2018c; Lample et al., 2018).
