Wow.. +Jeff Dean​ and team, thanks for this output. Apparently now the public will see something powered by TPU (Tensor Processing Unit). #awesome #google
Neural Machine Translation: Much better translation quality

Full technical report (23 exciting pages of bedtime reading):

Research blog post:

I'm very excited to announce that our new neural machine translation system closes the quality gap between the existing Google Translate production system and human quality translations by 58% to 87% for a variety of different language pairs (see table below, from the technical report we published today). This work has been a close collaboration between the Google Brain team ( and the Google Translate team.

Thanks to lots of hard engineering work and the computational efficiency of our Tensor Processing Units (see report), we are also rolling these benefits out to users of Google Translate, starting today with Mandarin to English as the first language pair live in production that uses this new system. We'll be rolling out many more language pairs over the coming weeks.

This highlights the success of neural models at more accurately capturing the complexities of real human language, and is a powerful demonstration of the research our group has been doing on language understanding.

This post presents WaveNet, a deep generative model of raw audio waveforms. We show that WaveNets are able to generate speech which mimics any human voice and which sounds more natural than the best existing Text-to-Speech systems, reducing the gap with human performance by over 50%. We also demonstrate that the same network can be used to synthesize other audio signals such as music, and present some striking samples of automatically generate...

Huge fan of Google and Apple. Love Les Mills Bodypump, Love being with my wife and son, also with family and friends
In short: I'm the founder of a product callend "QAFE", it's a platform for creating webapplications (see more on I really like technology and gadgets and I am huge fan of Google, hence ). 

Furthermore, I like being with my wife  and son. Also I like hanging out with family and friends, love fotography and  watching movies/series. In the spare time I have left, I'm also group fitness instructor for Les Mills BODYPUMP

For the longer version, see below.

I graduated in 1998 for my Masters degree in Computer Science at Leiden University, The Netherlands. The field of specialization was Algorithms and NP-complete problems. Scheduling problems can be NP-complete and that's the area where I was focussed on . After that I started working for the University of Leiden, ORTEC consultants, Ponte Vecchio and after that Qualogy. At Qualogy I used what I experienced so far to set up a product. Qualogy works in the field of Oracle and Java technology. With the current set of technologies, interesting products can be delivered and that is QAFE (see for more info)
