Artificial Neural Networks, Machine Learning, Deep Thinking

It was very interactive and more relaxed and informal than expected. We covered lots of topics in the time and the trainer was always receptive to talking more in detail or more generally about the topics and how they were related. I feel the training has given me the tools to continue learning as opposed to it being a one off session where learning stops once you've finished which is very important given the scale and complexity of the topic.

opennmt OpenNMT: Setting up a Neural Machine Translation system 7 hours OpenNMT is a full-featured, open-source (MIT) neural machine translation system that utilizes the Torch mathematical toolkit. In this training participants will learn how to set up and use OpenNMT to carry out translation of various sample data sets. The course starts with an overview of neural networks as they apply to machine translation. Participants will carry out live exercises throughout the course to demonstrate their understanding of the concepts learned and get feedback from the instructor. By the end of this training, participants will have the knowledge and practice needed to implement a live OpenNMT solution. Source and target language samples will be pre-arranged per the audience's requirements. Audience Localization specialists with a technical background Global content managers Localization engineers Software developers in charge of implementing global content solutions Format of the course Part lecture, part discussion, heavy hands-on practice Introduction     Why Neural Machine Translation?
