Iconic to attend inaugural SlatorCon London event as key neural MT expert

  • Conference will explore key drivers of the language services and technology industry.
  • Iconic CEO will be one of six experts invited to present.

Dublin – April 07, 2017 –  Iconic Translation Machines (Iconic), a leading Irish machine translation (MT) software and solutions provider, today announced their participation in the first ever SlatorCon London event taking place in the heart of the British capital this May.

The conference is being hosted by online platform Slator, best known for providing expert insights into the translation and technology markets across platforms such as the website, and will see large numbers flock to the Ace Hotel on May 9th for what promises to be a ‘must-attend’ event for those in the sector.

SlatorCon London will welcome some of the leading experts in the areas of venture capital, neural MT, M&A and accelerating translation productivity, who will share their views on how these drivers are shaping the industry.

Iconic will be represented by CEO John Tinsley who will be one of only six such experts invited to present. His talk on “The New Frontier for Machine Translation: The Neural Frontier” will examine the recent mainstream media coverage surrounding neural machine translation (NMT), how NMT differs from existing SMT technology, and Iconic’s own experience in integrating NMT into its proprietary Ensemble Architecture.  

Based on deep learning and artificial intelligence, NMT represents a paradigm shift in how we tackle the challenge of machine translation and it has shaken up the industry over the past 12 months. NMT has shown great promise in early tests and has the potential to make a big impact. As Tinsley states, “Going forward, it’s certainly exciting to think what we might be able to achieve with NMT. It’s still very early days as there are a lot of things we don’t know yet but there’s considerable cause for optimism“.

Following his talk, Tinsley will then be part of a panel moderated by SlatorCon Co-founder Florian Faes.

After the event participants will also have the opportunity to connect with peers during a networking reception.
