I will go over a few of the recent advances in neural machine translation. They include character-level modelling with a mix of convolution, recurrent and high-way layers, multilingual modelling and retrieval-based non-parametric neural machine translation. After going through these items, I will conclude the talk with some forward-looking perspectives on deep learning.

Kyunghyun Cho

New York University

Kyunghyun Cho is an assistant professor of computer science and data science at New York University. He was a postdoctoral fellow at University of Montreal until summer 2015 under the supervision of Prof. Yoshua Bengio, and received PhD and MSc degrees from Aalto University early 2014 under the supervision of Prof. Juha Karhunen, Dr. Tapani Raiko and Dr. Alexander Ilin. He tries his best to find a balance among machine learning, natural language processing, and life, but almost always fails to do so.
