Generative AI and the Future of Machine Translation
AMTA (the Association for Machine Translation in the Americas) is holding a one-day virtual event, Generative AI and the Future of Machine Translation, on Wednesday, 8 November 2023.
This event is intended as a forum for a thoughtful exchange of ideas informed by a year of successes and failures in applying Large Language Models and generative AI to the challenges of cross-lingual communication and data processing.
Like all AMTA events, Generative AI and the Future of Machine Translation will bring together researchers, practitioners, and providers of MT and related cross-lingual technology from academia, industry, and government and will include a keynote talk, an expert panel discussion, 22 individual presentations, two tutorials, and networking opportunities.
Christian Federmann, Principal Research Manager, Microsoft, and co-author (with Tom Kocmi) of “Large Language Models Are State-of-the-Art Evaluators of Translation Quality” (Link), will present the keynote address. Other speakers include Adam Bittlingmayer (ModelFront), Marine Carpuat (University of Maryland, College Park), Kevin Duh (Johns Hopkins), Serge Gladkoff (Logrus Global), Sharon O’Brien (DCU), Konstantin Savenkov (Intento), Kirti Vashee (Translated), Sarah Weldon (Google Translate), and many others.
Registration for the event is open on the AMTA website. Early-bird pricing ($99 for AMTA members / $149 for non-members) will be available until 18 October 2023. After that date, the price will be $129 for members and $179 for non-members. Registration will include access to recordings of the event. Non-member pricing includes a one-year membership in AMTA.
