Hutchins "The Module 3 questions and use of machine translation systems and computer-based translation tools". Successful decoding of encrypted messages by machines during World War II led some scientists, most notably Warren Weaver, to view the translation process as essentially analogous with decoding.
The concept of Machine Translation in the modern age can be traced back to the s. Warren Weaver, Director of the Natural Sciences Division of the Rockefeller Foundation, wrote to his friend Norbert Wiener on 4 March - shortly after the first computers and computer programs had been produced: Recognising fully, even though necessarily vaguely, the semantic difficulties because of multiple meanings, etc.
Even if it would translate only scientific material where the semantic difficulties are very notably lessand even if it did produce an inelegant but intelligible result, it would seem to me worth while. Also knowing nothing official about, but having guessed and inferred considerable about, powerful new mechanized methods in cryptography - methods which I believe succeed even when one does not know what language has been coded - one naturally wonders if the problem of translation could conceivably be treated as a problem in cryptography.
When I look at an article in Russian, I say "This is really written in English, but it has been coded in some strange symbols. I will now proceed to decode". Have you ever thought about this?
As a linguist and expert on computers, do you think it is worth thinking about? Cited in Hutchins I frankly am afraid the boundaries of words in different languages are too vague and the emotional and international connotations are too extensive to make any quasi-mechanical translation scheme very hopeful.
But Weaver remained undeterred and composed his famous Memorandumtitled simply "Translation", which he sent to some 30 noteworthy minds of the time.
It posited in more detail the need for and possibility of MT. Thus began the first era of MT research. The first generation henceforth referred to as 1G of MT systems worked on the principle of direct transfer; that is to say that the route taken from source language text to its target language equivalent was a short one consisting essentially of two processes: A direct system would comprise a bilingual dictionary containing potential replacements or target language equivalents for each word in the source language.
A restriction of such MT systems was therefore that they were unidirectional and could not accommodate many languages unlike the systems that followed.
Rules for choosing correct replacements were incorporated but functioned on a basic level; although there was some initial morphological analysis prior to dictionary lookup, subsequent local re-ordering and final generation of the target text, there was no scope for syntactic analysis let alone semantic analysis!
Inevitably this often led to poor quality output, which certainly contributed to the severe criticism of MT in the Automatic Language Processing Advisory Committee ALPAC report which stated that it saw little use for MT in the foreseeable future.
We can say that both technical constraints and the lack of a linguistic basis hampered MT systems. The system developed at Georgetown University, Washington DC, and first demonstrated at IBM in New York in had no clear separation of translation knowledge and processing algorithmsmaking modification of the system difficult.
In the period following the ALPAC report the need was increasingly felt for an approach to MT system design which would avoid many of the pitfalls of 1G systems.Grade 9 – Module 3 Topic C: NOTE: Even though the topics in this curriculum were not necessarily designed to be considered as separate units, for these review purposes we are treating Topic C.
