In this paper, we propose a novel neu-ral network model called RNN Encoder– Decoder that consists of two recurrent neural networks (RNN). One RNN encodes a sequence of symbols into a fixed-length vector representation, and the other decodes the representation into another sequence of symbols. The encoder and de-coder of the proposed model are jointly(More)
This paper describes the three systems developed by the LIUM for the IWSLT 2011 evaluation campaign. We participated in three of the proposed tasks, namely the Automatic Speech Recognition task (ASR), the ASR system combination task (ASR_SC) and the Spoken Language Translation task (SLT), since these tasks are all related to speech translation. We present(More)
This paper presents the systems developed by LIUM and CVC for the WMT16 Mul-timodal Machine Translation challenge. We explored various comparative methods , namely phrase-based systems and at-tentional recurrent neural networks models trained using monomodal or multi-modal data. We also performed a human evaluation in order to estimate the usefulness of(More)
Recent works on end-to-end neural network-based architectures for machine translation have shown promising results for English-French and English-German translation. Unlike these language pairs, however, in the majority of scenarios, there is a lack of high quality parallel corpora. In this work, we focus on applying neural machine translation to(More)
We present a new approach for neural machine translation (NMT) using the morphological and grammatical decomposition of the words (factors) in the output side of the neural network. This architecture addresses two main problems occurring in MT, namely dealing with a large target language vocabulary and the out of vocabulary (OOV) words. By the means of(More)
We describe our systems for Tasks 1 and 2 of the WMT15 Shared Task on Quality Estimation. Our submissions use (i) a continuous space language model to extract additional features for Task 1 (SHEF-GP, SHEF-SVM), (ii) a continuous bag-of-words model to produce word embed-dings as features for Task 2 (SHEF-W2V) and (iii) a combination of features produced by(More)
Recent progress in hardware technology, especially multi-core CPUs, offer new perspectives to accelerate software by parallelizing the computing process. But, it is still considered as a difficult task to parallelize the execution of an ASR system, as the different steps are usually sequential. This paper addresses some opportunities offered by parallelism(More)
The attention mechanism is an important part of the neural machine translation (NMT) where it was reported to produce richer source representation compared to fixed-length encoding sequence-to-sequence models. Recently, the effectiveness of attention has also been explored in the context of image captioning. In this work, we assess the feasibility of a(More)
