Statistical Machine Translation at the University of Edinburgh

The dream of automatically translating documents from foreign languages into English (or between any two languages) is one of the oldest pursuits of artificial intelligence research. Armed with vast amounts of example translations and powerful computers, we can witness significant progress toward achieving that dream. Our group exploits large datasets of translated and monolingual text to learn translation with statistical models, with a current focus on neural models.
