Speaker: Arianna Bisazza (Leiden University)
Title: Hints of linguistic structure in neural models of language and translation.
Date: Tuesday 15 May 2018
Time: 11:00
Location: Room F1.15, Science Park 107, Amsterdam

What makes recurrent neural networks work so well for next word prediction? Do neural translation models learn to extract linguistic features from raw data and exploit them in any explicable way? In this talk I will give an overview of recent work, including my own, that aims at answering these questions. I will also present recent experiments on the importance of recurrency for capturing hierarchical structure with sequential models.
