In the lab meeting tomorrow, Ashkan will give a talk about Real-Time Neural Machine Translation. Here is a brief description of his talk:

Simultaneous translation differs from a more usual consecutive translation. In simultaneous translation, the objective of a translator, or a translation system, is defined as a combination of quality and delay, as opposed to consecutive translation in which translation quality alone matters. In order to minimize delay while maximizing quality, a simultaneous translator must start generating symbols in a target languages before a full source sentence is received. In our meeting, I will talk about the main Ideas and approaches presented in two novel papers in this area of research.
