  • One Decade of Statistical Machine Translation: 1996--2005
    Hermann Ney (RWTH Aachen University)
    During the last decade, the statistical approach has found widespread use in machine translation for both written and spoken language and has had a major impact on the translation accuracy. The goal of this talk is to cover the state of the art in statistical machine translation. We will re-visit the underlying principles of the statistical approach to machine translation and summarize the progress that has been made over the last decade.
