Statistical Machine Translation is the task of translating natural languages using statistical models. Aurelien is introducing Scala and Spark into his translation pipeline and finding it a good fit for many of the problems faced. You will learn about the Scala based rule extractor, how Spark makes extracting data about N-grams trivial, and Aurelien's experience using Spark with deep learning frameworks.
