The third edition, a global conversation

The event in Punta del Esteon February 15 at the Grand Hotel Punta del Este – is the third in a row and takes place after the first edition held in September 6th in London & Southampton and the second edition held in October 24th in Cape Town, where people in the field of translation, localization, and artificial intelligence discussed the issues of “Humans and the Future of Translation” and of “Humans and AI: the challenge of languages in Africa”. 

The topic: AI, Translation, and Large Language Models – The challenge of languages for companies, communities, and citizens around the globe.

These may be some of the questions to discuss as we gather together at the Imminent event in Punta del Este:

– What are the key issues, concerns, and expectations surrounding the ongoing reflection on humans and language-related Al?

– On the one hand, generative Al based on large language models has revolutionized linguistic Al for the world’s major languages. Technology is having a huge impact on translation, creating new hurdles as well as opportunities. Established companies and startups, communities, and citizens are all being increasingly affected and progressively empowered at the same time, but to different extents depending on the region of the world in which they are based. How can businesses, researchers, and international private and public organizations address these challenges?

– On the other hand, many of the approaches to the most recent developments in Al and languages/translation rely on huge amounts of data and have English as their exclusive point of reference. What are the implications for all other languages?

A unique opportunity for participants coming from Europe, North America, and South America to discuss and delve into the pathways and perspectives of these issues.
