TAUS Global Content Summit – Amsterdam – March 6

TAUS Global Summit 2019


The TAUS Global Content Summit takes place in Amsterdam on the 6th of March at De Hollandsche Manege. Iconic is delighted to announce that CEO, Dr. John Tinsley, will be participating on the MT Experts Panel. The panel, moderated by Jaap van der Meer of TAUS, and which also includes Chris Wendt of Microsoft, and Sathish Chander of, will discuss whether human parity for machine translation (MT) is, in fact, ‘good enough’. Furthermore, they will take a critical look at scenarios where having human parity status might not be good enough, what to do about it, and what comes next.

This year TAUS initiated a new series of events to be held around the world in collaboration with TAUS members. The ‘Global Content Summits’ will continue to follow the popular TAUS themes in a concise one-day conference format.  The theme of this summit is “The Quantum Leap: machine translation reaching human parity”.  What brings language service and technology providers and translation buyers together at the TAUS  Global Content Summit is the common idea of “Growing our business”.  As we’ve witnessed with Neural MT, the breakthroughs in machine translation and machine learning and the rapidly changing landscape produce certain challenges, but also provide unprecedented opportunities.  Iconic is an active member of TAUS and looks forward to this upcoming event.

If you are attending the TAUS Summit or are ‘in the area’ we’d love to meet up!  You can contact us here to arrange a catch up in Amsterdam.  We look forward to seeing you there!
