Dr. Fraser Featured in Sueddeutsche Zeitung


An article in Sueddeutsche Zeitung about machine translation prominently features Dr. Fraser. In a wide ranging interview, he traces the history of machine translation from rule-based systems that dominated for many decades over statistical machine translation, the technology used by Google Translate today, to current work on neural machine translation in the field of deep learning. According to Dr. Fraser, high-quality machine translation will only be possible in the future if we find a way of combining explicit specification of linguistic structures with deep learning and if we manage to deal with the problems of larger discourse context and world knowledge.
