Sequence to sequence models in their most basic form, following an encoder-decoder paradigm, compressively encode source sequence representations into a single vector representation and decode this representation into a target sequence. This lecture will discuss the problems with this compressive approach, some solutions involving attention and external differentiable memory, and issues faced by these extensions. Motivating examples from the field of natural language understanding will be provided throughout.
