Our paper got ACL'21 Best Paper Award
VOLT is a research work exploring how to generate the optimal vocabulary for neural machine translation. In recent days, this paper got a lot of attentions and we also received several questions from readers. To help more readers understand our work better, I write a blog. In this blog, I will try my best to explain the formulations and motivations behind VOLT. I will use easy-to-understand examples for illustration (maybe not very rigorous for paper writing but somehow ok for blogs). If you have more questions, please feel free to contact us. You can find our e-mails on the published paper.
