OpenNMT google
OpenNMT is an open-source toolkit for neural machine translation (NMT). The system prioritizes efficiency, modularity, and extensibility with the goal of supporting NMT research into model architectures, feature representations, and source modalities, while maintaining competitive performance and reasonable training requirements. The toolkit consists of modeling and translation support, as well as detailed pedagogical documentation about the underlying techniques. OpenNMT has been used in several production MT systems, modified for numerous research papers, and is implemented across several deep learning frameworks. …

Coset Weighted Potential Game google
In this paper we first define a new kind of potential games, called coset weighted potential game, which is a generalized form of weighted potential game. Using semi-tensor product of matrices, an algebraic method is provided to verify whether a finite game is a coset weighted potential game, and a simple formula is obtained to calculate the corresponding potential function. Then some properties of coset weighted potential games are revealed. Finally, by resorting to the vector space structure of finite games, a new orthogonal decomposition based on coset weights is proposed, the corresponding geometric and algebraic expressions of all the subspaces are given by providing their bases. …

Comprehensive EVent Ontology (CEVO) google
While the general analysis of named entities has received substantial research attention, the analysis of relations over named entities has not. In fact, a review of the literature on unstructured as well as structured data revealed a deficiency in research on the abstract conceptualization required to organize relations. We believe that such an abstract conceptualization can benefit various communities and applications such as natural language processing, information extraction, machine learning and ontology engineering. In this paper, we present CEVO (i.e., a Comprehensive EVent Ontology) built on Levin’s conceptual hierarchy of English verbs that categorizes verbs with the shared meaning and syntactic behavior. We present the fundamental concepts and requirements for this ontology. Furthermore, we present three use cases for demonstrating the benefits of this ontology on annotation tasks: 1) annotating relations in plain text, 2) annotating ontological properties and 3) linking textual relations to ontological properties. …

Evolutionary Strategy Procedure (ES Procedure) google
Evolutionary Strategies (ES) are a popular family of black-box zeroth-order optimization algorithms which rely on search distributions to efficiently optimize a large variety of objective functions. This paper investigates the potential benefits of using highly flexible search distributions in classical ES algorithms, in contrast to standard ones (typically Gaussians). We model such distributions with Generative Neural Networks (GNNs) and introduce a new training algorithm that leverages their expressiveness to accelerate the Evolutionary Strategy – ES procedure. We show that this tailored algorithm can readily incorporate existing ES algorithms, and outperforms the state-of-the-art on diverse objective functions. …
