Why Neural Translations are the Right Length

Shi, Xing and Knight, Kevin and Yuret, Deniz. 2016. Proceedings of the 2016 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing pp 2278--2282, Austin, Texas. (PDF)


We investigate how neural, encoder-decoder translation systems output target strings of appropriate lengths, finding that a collection of hidden units learns to explicitly implement this functionality.
