The 33rd IPP Symposium
Statistical Machine Translation: From Research to Commercial Products
Daniel Marcu, Founder and Chief Operating Officer, Language Weaver Inc.
Research Project Leader, ISI/USC
Only three years ago, the best machine translation systems were built by manually encoding complex translation dictionaries and rules. Today, the highest quality outputs are produced by commercial systems that use statistical natural language processing techniques. In this talk, I will discuss research challenges and solutions that fueled this change.
