EBMT with external word alignment and chunk alignment

Title: EBMT with external word alignment and chunk alignment.

Who: Jae Dong Kim
When: Tuesday May 12, 12:00pm
Where: NSH 3305

Abstract: Since both EBMT and SMT are data driven methods, more accurate word alignment improves system performance in EBMT as in SMT. However, EBMT has focused on finding analogous examples while SMT has achieved plausibly accurate word alignment. For this reason, it is natural that one thinks that EBMT can benefit from using SMT word alignment. In this talk, I am going to talk about our approach to make use of more accurate external word alignment from SMT in our EBMT system. I am also going to talk about my preliminary results with chunk alignment for translation in EBMT.
