Variational Neural Machine Translation

  title={Variational Neural Machine Translation},
  author={Biao Zhang and Deyi Xiong and Jinsong Su and Hong Duan and Min Zhang},
Models of neural machine translation are often from a discriminative family of encoderdecoders that learn a conditional distribution of a target sentence given a source sentence. In this paper, we propose a variational model to learn this conditional distribution for neural machine translation: a variational encoderdecoder model that can be trained end-to-end. Different from the vanilla encoder-decoder model that generates target translations from hidden representations of source sentences… CONTINUE READING
