New, interesting research of Google Research and MIT on more effective human evaluation for machine translation, cites our work.

Google Research in cooperation with MIT Media Lab published new research “Toward More Effective Human Evaluation for Machine Translation”

CushLEPOR uses LABSE distilled knowledge to improve correlation with human translations

Automatic MT evaluation metrics are indispensable for MT research. Augmented metrics such as hLEPOR include broader evaluation factors (recall and position difference penalty)…
