BT Young Scientist

Justin Cunningham and Fintan Lalor from Patrician Secondary School, Newbridge, Kildare are conducting a BT Young Scientist Research project in human factors related to Machine Translation (MT).

As part of the research, they are are looking at what can be learnt from how the general public tackle linguistics olympiad puzzles. They are interested in seeing how humans deal with and solve the problems that machine translators face. They are looking for some volunteers to download the puzzles, have a go and give them feedback. You do not need to have done a linguistics puzzle before.
