Melbourne U, Facebook & Twitter Expose Novel Numerical Errors in NMT Systems

A research team from the University of Melbourne, Facebook AI, and Twitter Cortex proposes a black-box test method for assessing and debugging the numerical translation of neural machine translation systems in a systematic manner. The approach reveals novel types of errors that are general across multiple state-of-the-art translation systems.
