9:00-9:05 am - GlobalSaké 2023 Kickoff and Welcome message

9:05-9:30 am - ChatGPT vs NMT: The Global-First Revolution from linear translations to multilingual content origination in dynamic instant deploys. We’re reaching the pivot point in the localization industry where the traditional paradigm of linear translations from English source into non-English target languages is gradually giving way to a global-first, on-the-go circular flow, where real-time, in-context generation of multilingual content origination is what’s up.


How will the power of AI large language models impact Neural Machine Translation performance in a rapidly changing world where global-first real-time rendering becomes the singular scalable solution? We already see ChatGPT adoption in mainstream MTs for error detection, accuracy post-edit, and as a look-up context tool for multilingual content creation. What’s next? And how will GPT-4 disrupt the Localization industry and simship global product launches?

9:30-9:45 am - Productizing AI Solutions--technology vs compliance. AI technologies advance in innovation's speed of light, while the wheels of compliance churn slow. Effective AI solutions are already abundantly available for commercial use, but for them to become viable enterprise platforms, they need to comply with data security, scalability, connectivity, ease of management, adaptability, and full cost of ownership. This presentation will focus on practical implications of deploying Language AI solutions.

9:45-10:00 am - From Text to Speech: Delivering Real-Time Human-AI Powered Voice at Scale. In this session, we will discuss how we build on a framework for delivering machine translation at scale, in order to deliver real-time voice solutions. We will share two case studies where generative AI voice technology, developed in collaboration with humans, is leveraged for distinct applications: dubbing for e-learning content with AWS Learning, and speech synthesis in the Voice for Purpose initiative.

10:30-10:45am - Accessibility in Voice AI for Media: The role of in-context speech-to-text and Audio description, leveraging the Human and machine collaboration. What happens when we meet industry guidelines, but the audience experience isn’t equitable? How do we deal with bilingual captioning when technology wasn’t built for it? How do we better cater digital content for visually impaired users with the rise in Audio description? In this talk, we’ll examine today’s dilemmas in Media Accessibility, sharing recent case studies from the Oscars, Grammys, and Superbowl.
