Neural Machine Translation is the latest "buzzword" in machine translation, but what does it actually mean? Preeminent researcher and professor Kyunghyun Cho will introduce the concept and explain the basic philosophy behind neural machine translation. The session will also describe different uses for neural machine translation, looking back at ways it has been applied thus far, and forward at how it can be extended to include uses beyond just language.
Kyunghyun Cho is an assistant professor of Computer Science and Data Science at New York University (NYU). Previously, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Montreal under the supervision of Prof. Yoshua Bengio after obtaining a doctorate degree at Aalto University (Finland) in early 2014. Kyunghyun's main research interests include neural networks, generative models and their applications, especially to language understanding.
