Selling translation is a hard job. In certain markets, an extremely hard one. Competition in the industry has always been based on price: the system favors lower costs and loyalty, rather than... More > excellence. This is also why translations have always been sold by the pound: it is simply easier and customers believe they know what they are buying and how much they are spending. The main cause is in the industry’s typical business model and structure of labor. Besides undermining productivity, this flaw encourages firms to remain micro-sized to avoid risks, constraints, and contingencies and to resort to standards and technology not to improve efficiency, or increase competitiveness, and stimulate demand, but to foster a positive perception in customers. But can standards prove actually useful? Is compliance sought after purposely? And how much are quality standards actually relevant to translation quality?

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE & INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY By Andreas Sofroniou
eBook (PDF): $8.98
(1 Ratings)
Artificial intelligence (AI) is the science of making machines do things that would require intelligence if done by humans; sensing, reasoning, pattern recognition, speech recognition, and... More > problem-solving. The degree of sophistication that constitutes AI tends to be revised upwards with each new generation of computers. At its most ambitious level AI has the goal of creating computers and robots capable of reproducing a broad range of human behaviour. Doubts remain about whether such systems are theoretically or practically possible, because of the vast complexity of the human brain. Unlike the human brain, most computers act serially, one operation at a time. Even supercomputers developed in the 1980s that use 'parallel processing' to carry out billions of operations per second barely begin to match human brain capacity. The tasks that have been studied from this point of view include games, language translation, natural-language understanding, fault diagnosis, robotics, and supplying expert advice.< Less
