The localization industry is well into the process of transformation through deployment of neural machine translation NMT. But you can’t properly use the tool if you don’t understand how it works.

Neural networks and data science present magical results in certain concrete scenarios. However, it is not Harry Potter magic, but rather a sophisticated technology dealing with an infinitely more sophisticated subject – human language. We need to understand the mechanics in order to properly use the technology.

With NMT, data science meets language. The translation and localization industry needs to transform itself, mastering not only traditional linguistics and production processes, but also understanding modern neural models, where to find them, how they work and how to use the “spells”.

This information-packed presentation delivers an overview of the current state of neural MT, cutting through all of the hypes we are bombarded with on a daily basis about the virtues of this technology.

This presentation will onboard you on a wonderful journey of understanding the inner working of the technology, a must to apply it and possibly starting learning deep learning even deeper. 

The presenter will refer to the latest research and will touch upon many important findings (including the most recent ones) and practical aspects.
