Description

Artificial Intelligence, Neural Networks and the Future of Translation: Are Human Translators Really Destined for the Dustbin?


On Wednesday November 20th from 6-7pm, join Professor Barry Slaughter Olsen MACI '99, as he presents "Artificial Intelligence, Neural Networks and the Future of Translation: Are Human Translators Really Destined for the Dustbin?"


In recent years, artificial Intelligence has made huge leaps forward in a number of areas, including speech recognition and machine translation. Google Translate and similar translation tools process hundreds of billions of words a day. But does that really mean that language barriers have fallen and translators won’t be needed anymore? Join us for a look at why technology is expanding and changing opportunities for translators and interpreters, not putting them out of work.

Space is limited. If you can join us, please RSVP by Monday, November 18th. If you have any questions please email info@miis.edu.


Hope to see you there!

Note: registration and photo id will be required for building access.
