Machine Translation (2013)
Machine translation deals with automatic ways of mapping from one
human language (for example French) into another language, such as English.
This course is designed to teach students the background, theory and
implementation behind Machine Translation systems.
The mathematical content of the course include probability and
simple machine learning. There will be a small amount of linguistics
and ideas from Natural Language Processing, but these will be
introduced when necessary. It is helpful to be able to program (any
programming language is fine).
