Human Brains and Machine Muscle: How DG Translation Views the Future of the Profession

This overview revolves around a number of questions that the presenter has been contemplating as of late. Because the jury is still out on some of these (and you – the audience – are invited to participate!), the presenter feels that the gist of his speech is best given by the questions themselves. So here goes: Why did the European Commission develop its own Machine Translation system? How does it compare with publicly available engines? How do translators use it? How do we think that this technology will evolve in the (near) future? Is this truly Artificial Intelligence? If it is not, then how can we best use it? And… will human translators still exist?
