Towards Stream Translation: Adaptive Computation Time for Simultaneous Machine Translation

WS 2020 Felix SchneiderAlex Waibeler

Simultaneous machine translation systems rely on a policy to schedule read and write operations in order to begin translating a source sentence before it is complete. In this paper, we demonstrate the use of Adaptive Computation Time (ACT) as an adaptive, learned policy for simultaneous machine translation using the transformer model and as a more numerically stable alternative to Monotonic Infinite Lookback Attention (MILk)...
