The many machine learning ways of Google Translate – ApéroTalk with K. Stevens
For our last ApéroTalk of the summer, we’re extremely happy to welcome back Keith Stevens from Google, this time in partnership with Machine Learning Tokyo!
Keith will cover recent innovations in machine translation published by the team behind Google Translate.
Learn how these models are getting bigger, how they’re solving more complex tasks like simultaneous translation, and how embedding methods can be used to find and clean data.
We’ll go into depth about what problem each of these efforts are trying to solve, hear what new approaches are being used, and detail lessons learned while working on these challenges.
ApéroTalk is our event series based on a very simple (and very French) concept: Apéro and Talk.
• 7:00 pm – Doors open
• 7:30 pm – Talk and Q&A by Keith
• 8:30 pm – Networking session
