Research and development expands to Europe!
SDL is growing! Our machine translation research and development team, which is headquartered in Los Angeles, is expanding “across the pond” to Cambridge, UK. There, a team of research scientists will be working with Bill Bryne, a natural language processing expert, to drive machine learning research.
A December 2011 study by Battelle and R&D Magazine forecasted that the U.S industry will spend $280 billion in 2012 on R&D, a 3.8% increase on last year. They went on to predict that global research and development will increase 5.2% to $1.4 trillion, which is exciting news for the organization as the R&D team has greatly contributed to SDL’s product success.
“Extending our research organization allows SDL to dedicate more resources to advancing machine learning, statistical prediction, big data and machine-human synergy,” says Daniel Marcu, chief scientific officer at SDL. “These research disciplines are aligned with the technology vision across the SDL portfolio of products, and are catalysts for innovation.
Everyone here at SDL is excited to see what they come up with next. To view the full press release, click here.
