Re: ANNOUNCEMENT> Machine translations of the CBETA corpus

Dear Colleagues

I do not wish to enter the discussions about machine translation in a wider perspective, other than to offer a small note about what is essentially a technical issue, though it could have somewhat wider applicability as well.

In his interesting compilation, Stephan Peter Bumbacher offered the following example:

P: Meou-tseu ou les doutes levés.
K: How Master Mou Removes our Doubts.
Z: [Discourse on] the Elucidation of Delusions.
DL: [...]The cloud of Muzi's principle of delusion.

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT> Machine translations of the CBETA corpus

Deep Learning is the most rapidly evolving area of computer science, and Natural Language Understanding (NLU) and Machine Translation (MT) are the most rapidly evolving areas within Deep Learning. Marcus Bingenheimer has always been at the forefront of applying computer technology to Buddhist studies, and I believe he has earned his right to speculate on the future. Among researchers familiar with both NLU research and languages of the Buddhist canons, Sebastian Nehrdich stands at the top.
