The lecture is a part of the Free/Open-source Rule-based Machine Translation-workshop programme, but is open for everyone.
Professor Martin Kay is one of the pioneers of computational linguistics and machine translation. He was responsible for introducing the notion of chart parsing in computational linguistics, and the notion of unification in linguistics generally.
With Ron Kaplan, he pioneered research and application development in finite-state morphology. He has been a longtime contributor to, and critic of, work on machine translation. In his seminal paper "The Proper Place of Men and Machines in Language Translation," Kay argued for MT systems that were tightly integrated in the human translation process.
He holds an honorary doctorate at the University of Gothenburg.
