The ability to predict sequences in response to complex inputs is fundamental to many real-life tasks such as translation, conversation assistance, image captioning, speech and handwriting recognition. In this talk, we will start with the basic LSTM-based encoder-decoder model, discuss its limitations, and examine the recent research efforts to tackle them.  One line of research attempts to fix the maximum likelihood based training objective so as to align better with inference errors.  A second line of research attempt to increase model capacity via techniques like attention, structured attention, and memory models.  I will conclude with a discussion of future research direction.
