How to automatically and discreetly enrich content while reducing physical and cognitive effort.

Vistatec CTO Phil Ritchie will be speaking at the TAUS Annual Conference 2016 ‘The Game Changers of 2016’.

​​During the event Mr Ritchie will be discussing how Vistatec has harnessed and integrated several mature natural language processing applications, linguistic resources and Internet scale knowledge graphs to automatically and discreetly enrich content. This reduces physical and cognitive effort for authors and linguists; and delivers added value to customers in the form of content that is easier to discover, interactive, sticky, and intelligent.

Mr Ritchie directs and drives all language technology and research and development activities at Vistatec. He is the Chairman of the ADAPT Industry Advisory Board; a participant in a European Commission funded Horizon 2020 research projects; a member of several technical committees; Chair of the W3C ITS 2.0 Interest Group; co‑Chair of the W3C RAX community; and lead architect of the Ocelot open source editor project.

The TAUS Annual Conference is the once a year event where industry insiders and newcomers meet to get the pulse of the translation industry and discuss strategies and opportunities for collaboration. People attending the TAUS conference gain knowledge and valuable contacts. The themes discussed at the TAUS Annual Conference 2016 are the themes that really matter: people, technology, data, how we measure quality, the customer, machine translation, speech-to-speech and innovation.
