From Jan. 29 until Feb. 4, 50 participants that pass the test will have a chance to apply their knowledge to improve machine translation technology.

The deadline for the qualification round is Jan. 8.

To participate, sign up on the event's website.

DeepHack.Babel is the fifth in a series of DeepHack events organized by MIPT's Neural Networks and Deep Learning Lab.

This year, the hackathon will focus on machine translation, with a special emphasis on neural machine translation (NMT) -- a method that is gaining popularity among researchers and has already found commercial application.

Contrary to the conventional statistical approach, NMT is based on artificial neural networks, which helps to achieve higher-quality translation.
