In this GlobalSaké interactive virtual event, we'll feature the new-tech innovations applied to multilingual/multi-geo solutions in AI NMT (neural machine translation), NLP (natural language processing), STT (speech to text), TTS (text to speech), and voice synthesis in voice localization. As always, we’ll feature rounded, cross-functional case study perspectives for solving global challenges and discuss how we may extend technology to make our products more relevant, accessible, and inclusive on a global scale.

9:00-9:10 am - Welcome message & "Globally Beautiful" Community Slideshow

9:10-9:30 am - Duo TedTalk: Leveraging new-frontier technology for scaling autonomous continuous localization and AI source code internationalization. A 2-in-1 Tech presentation: 1. Unlimited continuous localization using distributed scalable microservices. Discover how to combine a modern service architecture with DevOps techniques to rapidly scale continuous localization, on demand and at low cost. And 2. AI source code internationalization. Dr. Global Self-Healing solution minimizes the need for manual engineering efforts for code internationalization. This invention by NetApp addresses internationalization (i18n) coding issues in any source code. It learns about common coding issues and the associated fixes with machine learning (ML) mechanisms and automatically fixes coding internationalization issues. Thus removes the need for developers to perform manual fixes.

9:30-9:45 am Duo TedTalk: The Human Touch in Machine Translation Quality Evaluation. Electronic Arts & ContentQuo Case Study. MT Quality Management: To use automatics metrics is human, to add human evaluations is divine. Cristina Anselmi, Machine Translation Lead at Electronic Arts, has pioneered the usage of MT in AAA videogame localization and impressed conference crowds with non-stop quality improvements over the past 3 years. In this talk with Kirill Soloviev, CEO & Co-founder at ContentQuo, she’ll share her top insights on what it takes to build a balanced and objective Quality Management program for Machine Translation in a global enterprise.

9:45-10:00 am - TedTalk: Vector Spaces in Multilingual AI applications. Vector Spaces in Multilingual AI applications. AI is now capable of doing magic. In this presentation, Rafal will talk about a mathematical solution for creating bilingual dictionaries without any translated material, and the multiple practical applications of this solution.

10:00-10:15 am - TedTalk: AI Neural MT and TMS workflow--client case study. Neural MT has become the core standard in global content rollout. However, just plugging NMT into localization workflows for cost reduction in new words and low fuzzy matches is not a sufficient sustainable approach. It drives unstable quality MT output, unnecessary MTPE effort and lift in LQA spend. In this talk, we'll share an AI-driven approach for content analysis, accuracy and classification in NMT/TMS workflows, reviewing what's available today and what we can expect tomorrow.

10:15-10:30 am - Duo TedTalk: Multilingual Machine Voice with a Human Touch: Subway & Intento case study. MT and speech technologies are already delivering remarkable results in scaling quality multilingual content creation in global launch cycles on the go. In this co-presentation, Carrie and Konstantin will share how AI voice & MT drove Subway’s ROI, saving it $1.5M and 2 years of labor during the first year of enablement.

10:30-10:45 am - Duo TedTalk: Vertical-specific trained NMT engines: a case study story. Custom NMT is a highly dynamic technology that requires staying on top of the latest developments and integrations. There is no one-size-fits-all NMT engine. Each company's technology needs to be frequently tested. In this duo talk, Steen Magnussen joins Yaron Kaufman and will share how NMT performance is evaluated and is custom fitted for each customer solution.
