The workshop is sold out! Registration is now closed.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for any inquiry.
OpenNMT is an Open Source project providing neural technologies for different tasks such as automatic machine translation, text generation and summarization. The OpenNMT project is a collection of implementations on multiple frameworks designed to be simple to use and easy to extend, while maintaining efficiency and state-of-the-art accuracy. Learn more about OpenNMT at http://opennmt.net!
Registration is FREE and OPEN to both the OpenNMT community as well as anyone interested in Deep Learning applications for natural language processing.
The main goals of the workshop are to:
During the daylong hackathon, we will provide hands-on training, but also development sessions to share good development practices and to kick off development of new features or interfaces.
In that spirit, we will have a balanced panel of presentations from Academia, Language Service Providers, Commercials and Institutional users.
Are you involved in natural language processing and want to be aware of the huge improvement led by AI, Neural Networks and Deep Learning? Come and learn from thought leaders from Research, Industry and Open Source NMT developers!
Share different perspectives (developers/users/researchers) on OpenNMT and Neural Machine Translation in general
Get insights on the latest innovations that the community is putting inside the framework
Establish direct contacts within the community, share results and collaboratively work on a roadmap
