Encoding Cultures: Jan Niehues | Machine Translation Using Neural Networks
Encoding Cultures. Living Amongst Intelligent Machines
- 27.04.2018 to 28.04.2018
Recent advances in the field of artificial intelligence are revolutionizing the way with which we think and act. They give an idea of the fundamental changes that will affect our society in the coming years. The interdisciplinary symposium »Encoding Cultures. Living Amongst Intelligent Machines« brought scientists, programmers and developers, cultural theorists and artists into dialogue with a broader public. The lectures and discussions provide insight into the latest state of research and development in the field of machine learning and ask about the current and long-term effects of this technology on science, business, politics, art and society.
Jan Niehues has been working in the field of machine translation for over 10 years, where he also received his doctorate. During this time he spent several research stays in the USA and France. His research focus is on the use of machine learning for translation. The technology developed is also used in practice at the university to translate lectures. Niehues is currently a post-doc at KIT Karlsruhe.
