Hani Neural Machine Translation: Translating A Low Resource Language

Hani Storybook Sample Summary: Describe the process of creating what is likely the first ever machine translation model for the Hani language, starting with no previous datasets or trained models. Describe data, tools, techniques, and commands used, hopefully enabling easier progress in low-resource translation efforts like this one. Present a baseline and ideas for future improvement.

Sidequest - Fun with FUNIT

Very quick post: NVIDIA makes the best deep learning toys. Latest one is GANimal (formerly Petswap), which lets you upload a picture of your pet, and transform it to look like other animals. So I uploaded a picture of my face instead: Me, as various animalsMe, transformed to many 16 different animals
