日英サイエンスワークショップ(UK-Japan Science Workshop)

2014.8.5〜7の三日間にかけて東北大学で日英サイエンスワークショプが行われました。 乾・岡崎研究室には、日本人の高校生3人とイギリス人の高校生2人の計5人が訪れ、 機械翻訳のしくみを体験しながら、 前日に訪れた磐梯山のWikipedia記事を協力して英語に翻訳しました。

一日目に、イギリス人と日本人の混合ペアに分かれて人手で翻訳を行い、翻訳の難しさや、言語の壁を体験しました。 その後、たくさんの翻訳文対からコンピューターが自動的に翻訳のルールを獲得できることを学び、実際に37万文の日英対訳文対を用いて翻訳モデルを学習しました。 人手の翻訳の難しさや、機械翻訳ができること、まだ出来ないこと、機械翻訳がどのように人の助けになるかについて議論を深め、 最後に、機械翻訳を駆使しながら、磐梯山のWikipedia記事を翻訳し、英語版Wikipediaに反映させました。 この結果、英語版の記事は2倍以上の内容になりました。

We were learning about building an automatic translation machine; I learnt the advantages and limitations of automatic translation and how it could be used in unison with human translation to decrease the pressure on human translators and provide services otherwise unavailable. The program of work compiled by the students and professors at Tohoku University was comprehensive, interesting and engaging. I enjoyed the experience thoroughly and feel honored to have been selected to work in the project. The work furthered my interest in communication between language barriers and I am excited to see the progress in this field in the oncoming years.

I would like to thank everyone involved in the preparation of this project and congratulate Tohoku University's Graduate School of Information Sciences for putting in such a brilliant effort to make our experience at Tohoku enjoyable, informative and memorable.

Thank you guys, I hope that perhaps one day we can work together again.

I really really enjoyed the workshop. You had all obviously put a lot of hard work into its preparation. It was really engaging, and enjoyable. The cake was very good. We learned a lot from it. The translation processes involved were all very interesting, and it nurtured my interest in IT & programming. It was a marvellous experience to come to Tohoku and participate in such an interesting, innovative course.

Again, many many thanks!

一つの記事を翻訳するだけで、大きな労力が必要になるということを実感しました。 それでもなんとか完成させられたのは自動翻訳のおかげだと思います。
