KantanMT has announced the launch of KantanLabs, an advanced research group that will delve into cutting-edge technology to improve the quality of automated translation output
6 April 2016, Dublin, Ireland: KantanMT is pleased to announce the launch of KantanLabs, an advanced research group that will delve into technical research of deep learning, incremental retraining, predictive quality estimation, neural networks and other research fields that are of importance in improving the quality of automated translation outputs.
KantanLabs is being setup to engage directly with the ADAPT Centre for Digital Content Technology and other academic institutions. Dr Dimitar Shterionov, Head MT Researcher at KantanMT will be driving the venture, which aims to combine world-class academic research expertise in the field of language technology with the industry knowledge garnered from working with some of the biggest enterprise clients in eRetail and other industry verticals.
“KantanLabs intends to bring out the best research expertise in the field of Machine Translation to revolutionise MT services. Dr Dimitar Shterionov, Head MT Researcher at KantanMT “MT has come a long way in the last decade, and now it is time to leverage innovations in other fields such as deep learning to ensure the advancement of high quality automated translation outputs.”
The first project to be undertaken by KantanLabs will be supported by the European Association for Machine Translation (EAMT). The project aims to expand the word reordering capabilities of KantanMT.com in the translation process for some challenging language pairs. They will leverage the existing research on this topic and explore the impact of word reordering on English->German, English->Chinese and English->Japanese language pairs.
Over the next few months KantanLabs will announce the appointment of new research experts, including researchers from the European Association of Machine Translation (EAMT).
