Details

We're excited to collaborate with Le Wagon Tokyo for our next ML talk and welcome Keith Stevens from Google.

Keith will cover recent innovations in machine translation published by the team behind Google Translate. Learn how these models are getting bigger, how they're solving more complex tasks like simultaneous translation, and how embedding methods can be used to find and clean data. We'll go into depth about what problem each of these efforts are trying to solve, hear what new approaches are being used, and detail lessons learned while working on these challenges.

ApéroTalk is a Le Wagon event series based on a very simple (and very French) concept: Apéro and Talk.
