- Title: TAUS Global Content Summit, Dublin
The TAUS Global Content Summit Dublin, hosted by Microsoft, takes place in Dublin, Ireland, the 30th September 2019, and Iconic is pleased to announce that our CEO, Dr. John Tinsley, will be speaking at this event. The discussions throughout the day will focus on how the AI revolution and technology have impacted businesses in the translation industry – we’ve seen first hand how Neural Machine Translation (MT) has created opportunities that simply weren’t feasible before.
This popular one day Summit will have multiple panels covering diverse translation topics, all led by industry experts. Breakthroughs in technology, namely, Neural MT, have brought about substantial changes in the translation ecosystem, and in the Technology Briefings Session, John will demonstrate this with his talk on The growing role of language technology in the life sciences – a case study.
Organisations in the life sciences have very strict regulatory requirements to collect and report on any issues or defects with their products. The problem is, these reports are numerous, come from a range of sources, in different formats, and, critically, in multiple different languages. Volumes are increasing at such a pace that existing processes aren’t sustainable which carries significant cost for the companies, but also potentially puts patients’ health at risk. Neural MT, as part of a wider trend of Robot Process Automation, is helping these organisations process this information in a timely manner, making their products safer for patients. In this short talk, John will give details of how language technology is helping to transform this industry when it comes to handling multilingual information.
We are looking forward to talking about Neural MT, and greeting colleagues old and new in our ‘home town’ of Dublin! If you are attending the TAUS Summit we’d love to meet up! You can contact us here to arrange a catch up in Dublin. We look forward to seeing you!
