How can Artificial Intelligence use Big Data for Translating Documents?

In this session, John will walk us through the exciting world of machine translation. Specifically, he will show us how documents, known as corpora, filled with information from various sources can be used to provide artificial intelligence to a translation system. He will cover the evolution of statistical and neural-based translation systems and how they are currently used to achieve a superior translation quality compared to their predecessors. Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning architectures will be the highlight of the presentation via a technique called transfer learning. This will be an awesome presentation for those wanting to see how it all fits together!
