Webinar: Artificial Intelligence and Machine Translation: 2019 and Beyond
2018 brought many advances in language-related Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Translation (MT). MT and more broadly natural language processing have become important parts of the global technological leadership race in AI. Research in this area has skyrocketed and many ground-breaking achievements continue to be made. This fast-evolving technology field is changing the way people work, play and understand data.
Join Professor Philipp Koehn, a leading researcher in the field of AI and MT, along with Dion Wiggins, Omniscien’s CTO, for an hour of information sharing and insights on what 2019 will likely bring. We will look at trends in Neural Machine Translation, Natural Language Processing, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Mining, Text Analytics and more.
