How will artificial intelligence change the interpreting profession? The implications for the market, interpreter training and the delivery of interpreting services could be profound. In this day-long symposium experts in the field will explain how advanced current speech-to-speech translation solutions are, what the challenges are, how AI can support human interpreters, and what we can expect in the future.
A non-profit event for interpreters, researchers, students, journalists, AI/technology enthusiasts and members of the general public with an interest in the subject.
