TAUS Webinar on NMT- June 7

TAUS Webinar on NMT- June 7

Iconic CEO John Tinsley will be hosting a webinar on neural machine translation (NMT) on June 7 as part of the TAUS Translation Technology series.

In the webinar John 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. Although a game changer, it is still considered to be an emerging technology in its relative infancy.

Looking in from the outside, it’s hard to separate the hype from the reality. What does it mean for end users, buyers and developers? For different languages? For different businesses and use cases? For the whole industry?

In this webinar, John will take a peek behind the curtain to see what’s actually going on and answer these questions from an expert point of view.

He will describe the current state of neural MT from the technical and commercial perspective, including some of the collaborative work that Iconic has been doing with leading machine translation research groups and highlight the relative pros and cons of neural and existing approaches to MT.

Finally, he’ll look at Iconic’s approach to rolling out neural MT  while trying to manage expectations, and highlight areas where it might have the most immediate impact for end-users.
