GALA – Amsterdam – March 26 – 29
The annual GALA ”Language of Business” conference has become a fixture on our event calendar as we make our way to Amsterdam in March for the 2017 edition. Taking place inside the Hotel Okura from March 26 to 29, GALA 2017 already promises to be an exciting and productive event with three days of talks, panels, workshops, and networking.
Our own John Tinsley will be delivering a talk entitled ”The New Frontier for Machine Translation: The Neural Frontier“, which will be breaking down the hottest topic in the industry right now: Neural MT (NMT). With an explosion in NMT academic research and investment from tech giants, the technology has made headlines around the world, promising to push the boundaries of MT. But can NMT walk the walk? Can it truly produce more natural sounding translations and deal with morphologically rich languages? Can NMT better deal with complex content types like eDiscovery and patents?
Drawing on our MT scientists’ work on integrating NMT into our proprietary Ensemble Architecture, deep experience in deploying commercial MT engines, and our collaboration with the world leading MT research team at the ADAPT Centre, John will be separating fact from fiction. Be there Monday morning, directly after the keynote at the Language Technology track to get the full story behind NMT. For more information you can check out our recent press release.
