Event description

Description

A fireside chat with Maja Popović, researcher at Humboldt University, about the evaluation and quality of Machine Translation output.

In her research, Maja focuses on relations between translation errors and translation quality criteria as well as approaches for the evaluation of Machine Translation. Maja will explain her research and share with us some practical applications, such as the development of automatic tools that facilitate or replace human evaluation.

During the chat, you can raise your questions and we will have an open discussion about Machine Translation research and its impact on translation and localization.
