Minimum Bayes Risk Decoding with Enlarged Hypothesis Space in System Combination


This paper describes a new system combination strategy in Statistical Machine Translation. Tromble et al. (2008) introduced the evidence space into Minimum Bayes Risk decoding in order to quantify the relative performance within lattice or n-best output with regard to the 1best output. In contrast, our approach is to enlarge the hypothesis space in order to… (More)
