Deep Learning for Machine Translation: a paradigm shift


In beginning there was the "rule based" machine translation, like Babelfish, that didn't work at all. Then came the Statistical Machine translation, powering the like of Google Translate, and all was good. Nowadays, it's all about Deep Learning and the Neural Machine Translation is the state of the art, with unmatched translation fluency. Let's dive into the internals of a Neural Machine Translation system, explaining the principles and the advantages over the past.
