Sequence-To-Sequence (Seq2Seq) learning was introduced in 2014, and has since been extensively studied and extended to a large variety of domains. Seq2Seq yields state-of-the-art performance on several applications such as machine translation, image captioning, speech generation, or summarization. In this tutorial, we will survey the basics of this framework, its applications, main algorithmic techniques and future research directions.
