The Machine Translation unit, part of the Digital Industry center at Fondazione Bruno Kessler, focuses on machine translation technology that supports both human translators and multilingual communication applications.

The unit’s core activities include the creation of innovative neural architectures and the development of methods to adapt them to different contexts, domains and application scenarios (e.g. subtitling, dubbing, and interpreting). The unit has also an active strand of research on the analysis and mitigation of gender bias in automatic translation.

One of the very first multilingual and multimodal model to obtain performance competitive with dedicated models, maybe the first of many? Anyway, a very interesting read:
