This thesis is about modeling text and speech sequences to achieve lower perplexity, better generation, and benefit downstream language tasks; specifically, we address the problem of modeling natural language sequences (text and speech) with Transformer-based language models. We present three new techniques that improve sequence modeling in different ways.
