IFLYTEK liuqingfeng: man machine coupling is the key to the application and landing of artificial intelligence
CNR Shanghai news on November 9 (fuwenjie and hanxiaoyu) "man machine coupling is the key to the application and landing of artificial intelligence and is becoming a global consensus." This (9th) afternoon, liuqingfeng, chairman of iFLYTEK, mentioned in the special report "development trend and application of artificial intelligence technology" made by Shanghai Foreign Studies University for the central group of the Party committee if you suspect that the detector has caused noise, "The meaning of man-machine coupling is divided into two aspects. On the one hand, the machine assists the manual work, and on the other hand, the manual work helps the machine. In the translation industry, how to use man-machine coupling to make the machine and how to conduct experiments and provide data devices according to international standards such as GB, ISO, DIN, ASTM, JIS, etc. How to better help interpretation is worth further exploring."

iFLYTEK is exploring the answer to this problem together with Shanghai Foreign Studies University. In october2018, iFLYTEK and Shanghai Foreign Studies University announced to jointly build the Shanghai Foreign Studies University iFLYTEK intelligent interpretation and translation research joint laboratory to actively explore and cooperate in machinetranslation, man-machine coupled simultaneous interpretation, translation assistance training, etc. As the location of China's first doctoral degree authorization center in translation studies, shangwai Advanced College of translation has won the highest rating from the International Association of conference interpreters (AIIC) and the title of "first-class conference interpretation teaching unit" in the world. As a result, it has become the only professional conference interpretation school in China, including Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, which has ranked among the world's "top 15"
it is understood that since the establishment of the joint laboratory one year ago, the Joint Laboratory of Shanghai University of Foreign Studies and iFLYTEK has continued to explore the "man-machine coupling" method, using machines as assistants to help people learn and complete interpretation tasks, thus developing a tool to assist interpreters. From demand research, software development, translator experiment, product polishing to the first trial, the two sides conducted 54 rounds of student comparison experiments, collected nearly 100 suggestions for product improvement, and continuously polished. In the final experimental results, the integrity of interpretation information mainly based on the words whose proper names can shorten the gap with the cost of polystyrene system (exs, XPS) has increased from 88% to 97%. Through the questionnaire, interpreters have reference information, and their work pressure has also decreased by 20%
in the lecture on the same day, liuqingfeng also introduced the latest progress of iFLYTEK in intelligent speech and artificial intelligence core technologies such as speech synthesis, speech recognition, oral evaluation and language translation, and mentioned that iFLYTEK won the first place again in the recently concluded 2018 international oral machinetranslation evaluation competition, which attracted the participation of many scientific research institutes and institutions, This is also iFLYTEK's ninth first in various international competitions this year
as for the technical name and technical parameters of Shanghai International Studies University, which is good at cultivating talents in language disciplines, rather than worrying about whether artificial intelligence will "rob the students of their jobs", it is better to encourage students to contact and make use of new technologies and be willing to assist the development of new technologies. Jiang Feng, Secretary of the Party committee of shangwai, said that shangwai should cultivate "high-end exchange" talents. At this level, artificial intelligence is far from replacing human beings. The cooperation with iFLYTEK is just a link for the university to turn the challenges from artificial intelligence into new opportunities - in addition to the intelligent interpretation and translation laboratory, the university has vigorously supported and advocated the cross research between artificial intelligence and related disciplines, established a number of high-end laboratories such as "Key Laboratory of brain and cognitive science application school" and "artificial intelligence and data science application laboratory", and actively encouraged scholars to engage in cutting-edge research in line with international standards
