Machine Translation and Multilinguality in May and June 2022

After a while, here is a dump of what I found most interesting on arXiv about machine translation and multilinguality, covering May and June of this year. Google Research published a pre-print of their NAACL paper: SCONES (Single-label Contrastive Objective for Non-Exclusive Sequences). The paper is about a simple trick: they replace softmax with binary classifiers with a sigmoid output and use the sum of binary cross-entropies as their loss function. It gets a slightly better BLEU and BLEURT score […]
