Samsung has been investing heavily in Artificial Intelligence (AI), the company has set up a number of AI facilities around the world.
Now the company has revealed that it has won a number of AI awards including first place at the International Workshop on Spoken Language Translation (IWSLT).
In October, Samsung Research’s R&D Institute Poland (SRPOL), in partnership with University of Edinburgh of the U.K., won first place at the International Workshop on Spoken Language Translation (IWSLT), one of the world’s most renowned and longest-running automatic language translation workshops. IWSLT sits alongside the Workshop on Machine Translation (WMT) as the most prestigious competitions in the space. The IWSLT win is the second consecutive time that the Poland research center has topped the workshop.
Every June, IWSLT provides permissible training data sets and allows test run submissions from participants, evaluating the submitted runs with automatic metrics. This year, IWSLT featured two tasks: Low Resource Machine Translation and Speech Translation. SRPOL participated in the first sector, aiming to discover new technologies that can help overcome low-resource situations with scarcity in not only data but also in time and cost that are often required to use AI for multilingual translation.
