Artificial Intelligence: And You, How Will You Raise Your AI?

[This article originally appeared on Kirti Vashee’s Blog]

This is the final post for the 2017 year, a guest post by Jean Senellart who has been a serious MT practitioner for around 40 years, with deep expertise in all the technology paradigms that have been used to do machine translation. SYSTRAN has recently been running tests building MT systems with different datasets and parameters to evaluate how data and parameter variation affect MT output quality. As Jean said:

” We are continuously feeding data to a collection of models with different parameters – and at each iteration, we change the parameters. We have systems that are being evaluated in this setup for about 2 months and we see that they continue to learn.”

This is more of a vision statement about the future evolution of this (MT) technology, where they continue to learn and improve, rather than a direct reporting of experimental results, and I think is a fitting way to end the year in this blog.

It is very clear to most of us that deep learning based approaches are the way forward for continued MT technology evolution. However, skill with this technology will come with experimentation and understanding of data quality and control parameters. Babies learn by exploration and experimentation, and maybe we need to approach our continued learning, in the same way, learning from purposeful play. Is this not the way that intelligence evolves? Many experts say that AI is going to be driving learning and evolution in business practices in almost every sphere of business.

Meet us at MILIPOL PARIS 2017 and discover how Artificial Intelligence enhances Multi-language OSINT & COMINT

Today’s defense and security organizations are up against all sorts of growing threats and they need the most efficient intelligence tools possible. As real-time information for quick decision making is crucial, they face huge challenges in terms of data collection and analysis:

  • Exponential amounts of information to be collected and processed (social media, rise of User Generated Content)
  • Variety of sources and formats (text, audio, video, image)
  • Multiple languages and lack of linguistic skills and expertise, especially in Middle Eastern languages.

Entities in charge of territories security more than ever need to have efficient multilingual intelligence capabilities of OSINT and COMINT.

On November 21-24th, SYSTRAN will be participating in the MILIPOL event in Paris in partnership with VOCAPIA Research. MILIPOL Paris is the leading event for homeland security and is organized under the patronage of the French Ministry of Interior.

As the leader in language processing technology, SYSTRAN launched in 2016 the first Neural Machine Translation technology able to provide intelligence professionals with a secure automated translation solution available in more than 140 languages pairs with an outstanding quality for languages as Arabic or Chinese for example.

Our partner, Vocapia Research, develops leading-edge multilingual speech processing technologies to enable speech recognition, automatic audio segmentation and much more. We will be showcasing our Real Time Text & Speech Neural Translation solution and hold DEMO sessions to show you how we integrate into your internal processes to seamlessly manage multilingual projects.

We therefore invite you to stop by our stand (Hall 6 n°E 155) to check out our solutions and discuss about how we can bring true value to your organization.

Return on expertise: Alvarez & Marsal reveal the backstage of eDiscovery success stories with SYSTRAN Pure Neural™ Machine Translation

SYSTRAN’s solution are used every day by various types of companies across many industries to get the most accurate and secure automatic translations on any type of content – from sensitive documents to websites to mobile apps and much more.  We’d like to focus today on how one of our clients – Alvarez & Marsal, a consultancy firm- uses SYSTRAN’s platform to manage eDiscovery projects with the highest efficiency and accuracy.

The processes and tools used in eDiscovery scenarios are, most of the time, quite complex given the large volumes of electronic data produced. Unlike hard-copy evidence, e-documents are a lot more dynamic and contain various metadata that demand the highest translation quality in order to eliminate any claims of spoliation at any time in a litigation case.

Phil Beckett, the firm’s Managing Director, who has recently been named ‘Investigation Digital Forensic Expert of the year’ by Who’s Who Legal is talking to us about how SYSTRAN’s solutions plug into their internal processes to manage their projects end to end.

The use of machine translation in eDiscovery

Quote

This article originally appeared on Kirti Vashee’s Blog.

There are some kinds of translation applications where MT just makes sense, and it would be foolish to even attempt these kinds of projects without decent MT technology as a foundation. Usually, this is because these applications have some combination of the following factors:

  • Very large volume of source content that simply could NOT be translated without MT in any useful time frame
  • Rapid turnaround requirement (days, hours or minutes) for the content to have any value to the translation consumers
  • A user tolerance for lower quality translations at least in early stages of information review
  • To enable information and document triage when dealing with large document collections and help to identify highest priority content from a large mass of undifferentiated content. This process also helps to identify the most important and relevant documents to send to higher quality human translation.
  • Translation Cost prohibitions (usually related to volume)

SYSTRAN at the Digital Forensics and Analysis Summit

Digital SummitOn October 16-17th, SYSTRAN and its partner Relativity will be participating in the Digital Forensics & Analysis Summit as sponsors and exhibitors. The Digital Forensics & Analysis Summit is a two-day forum that will gather international experts from around the world in Abu Dhabi to share best practices on how technology is used in their forensics department to extract evidence that is able to stand up in trial.

Since information governance, forensics and eDiscovery procedures face mounting pressure from the growth of Electronic stored Information, legal standards and rules governing digital investigation requirements have also contributed to the rise in litigation and associated legal costs.

Within this environment, documents written in languages other than English, including data collection, processing and reviewing can pose major challenges, especially when ensuring the mandatory confidentiality of those procedures, as these typically forbid online translation. Organizations need to search by keyword and find relevant documents and emails in the appropriate languages while controlling costs and maximizing productivity. Therefore time-intensive human translation is usually not an option and the need for viable machine translation solutions becomes all the more apparent.

Supporting Lean Manufacturing Efforts with Machine Translation technology

 Don’t let language be a hurdle in your business

Lean Manufacturing[1] involves constant efforts to eliminate or reduce ‘muda’ (Japanese term defining waste or any activity that consumes resources without adding value) in design, manufacturing, distribution and customer service processes.

As an operational system, Lean Manufacturing maximizes added value, reduces essential support and eliminates waste in all processes throughout the value chain. Waste in this regard may include over-production, inventory tasks, waiting time, correction, transportation and over-processing.

In summary, the equation for Lean Management is: Increased profitability equals increasing prices or reducing costs. A big part of the cost is the turnaround time between an order being placed and when it is shipped.

What is your Manufacturing Lead Time from the placement of an order to shipping? What would you expect as the standard for your business? What do you foresee as a likely evolution for both you and your customers?
