Artificial intelligence
Speech recognition

The University of Ghent and the University of Mainz are carrying out an interesting research project for the booth of tomorrow.

SCIC has co-financed this project in the framework of our cooperation with universities and we are appealing to you to answer their survey on the Ergonomics for the Artificial Booth mate (EABM) project.

The purpose of the EABM project is to create a new computer-assisted interpreting (CAI) tool, an artificial booth mate. This new tool will be enhanced with artificial intelligence (AI) and automatic speech recognition (ASR) technology.

An artificial booth mate will be able to accurately and rapidly display terms and numbers on a screen during real-time speech. In other words, the aim of this tool is to provide interpreters with support, which should contribute to enhancing interpreting performance in the booth.

Needless to say, such a tool should be made to fit an interpreter’s needs and expectations and for that, we need your help!

By taking this 10 minute survey, you can help us figure out what the ideal artificial booth mate should look like.
