TAUS MT Showcase 2014, Enabling MT for the Everyone! Tony O’Dowd, KantanMT


Published on

Working with MOSES and building high quality MT systems is not for the faint hearted. It requires a wide range of technical and linguistic based knowledge that is often difficult to find and develop within organisations. Consequently, only the biggest organisations have the financial muscle to invest and reap the awards of MT. This puts the small-to-medium sized organisations at a distinct disadvantage. KantanMT changes everything! KantanMT is a cloud-based implementation of MOSES which enables SMEs to embrace the advantages of MT - quickly and economically. This presentation will demonstrate the KantanMT approach to rapid engine training and tuning, data analytics used to predict MT quality and create tiered pricing structures and instantaneous engine deployment - all of which are driving the new MT Revolution!
