    • Title: An Introduction to Statistical Machine Translation: A case study for Turkish-English SMT     Speaker: Dr. İlknur Durgar El-Kahlout (Chief Researcher, MTRD group at TÜBİTAK)     Abstract: Automatic translation of one natural language into another natural language is called as machine translation. Dating back almost seventy years, machine translation is one of the major, oldest, and most active areas in natural language processing. The last decade and a half have seen the rise of statistical approaches to address the machine translation problem.     Although statistical machine translation (SMT) has been well-studied for some language pairs, there has been comparatively little research for the Turkish-English language pair. In this talk; we will discuss     i) basic steps of statistical machine translation; ii) how different morpheme-level representations on Turkish side impact statistical translation results; ii) which statistical approaches suit better for the Turkish-English statistical machine translation; iii) a small introduction to the novel method: neural machine translation.      Bio: Dr. İlknur Durgar El-Kahlout, chief researcher, received the B.Sc. degree in computer engineering from Başkent University, Ankara, Turkey in 2001. She received the M.Sc. and PhD degrees in computer science and engineering from Sabancı University, İstanbul, Turkey in 2003 and 2009 respectively. During that time, she was a member of the Human Language and Speech Technologies (HLST) Laboratory. Her research studies were focused on statistical machine translation especially in/to morphologically rich languages. She worked as a postdoctoral researcher in Quearo program in LIMSI, Paris, France between August 2009-2010. After returning to Turkey, she was employed as an assistant professor in İstanbul Aydın University from September 2010 to January 2011 and then joined the MTRD group at TÜBİTAK. During her academic tenure, Dr. Durgar El-Kahlout has been working on several topics including machine translation, dependency parsing, and chunking and served as a local committee member in recent natural language processing conferences.
