Attention Mechanism: Why use context vector instead of attention weights?

In attention, the context vector ($c$) is derived from the sum of the attention weights ($\alpha$) multiplied by the encoder hidden states ($h$), where the weights are obtained by multiplying the ...

What is the reason for the speedup of transformer-xl?

The inference speed of transformer-xl is faster than transformer. Why? If state reuse is the reason, so it is compared by two 32seq_len + state-reuse vs one 64seq_len + no-state-reuse?
