This is a post that reviews the recent advancements of machine translation, especially neural machine translation (NMT).
Prerequisites: this post assumes some prior knowledge about machine learning, artificial neural networks, CNN, RNN (LSTM, GRU) encoder-decoder architecture, seq-to-seq models, etc. Continue reading
Here is a link to a literature review I made on the topic of rare word issue and its approaches in neural machine translation. It briefly introduces neural machine translation, and then focuses on the specific present solutions to rare word issue in NMT. Feel free to make comments on it.
