Marcello Federico attended the Facebook Faculty Summit that was held in London on 22 Sept 2015. About 100 people were invited to the meeting, including FB people from USA and Europe and externals from Europe. The meeting was organised in four separate tracks: machine learning, security, programming languages, and systems. The purpose of the meeting was to update participants about FB's research agenda and activities and to foster collaborations with the invited researchers. MF gave a short presentation about the ideas developed in MateCat and the MMT project.
I'm glad to announce that Nick Ruiz was awarded the Best Student Paper Award at the INTERSPEECH Conference in Dresden (Germany) for the joint FBK-Microsoft research paper:
"Adapting Machine Translation Models toward Misrecognized Speech with Text-to-Speech Pronunciation Rules and Acoustic Confusability"
by Nicholas Ruiz, Qin Gao, William Lewis, Marcello Federico.
INTERSPEECH is among the world largest conferences on Speech and Language Technology (746 papers presented this year).
