Balancing Tech Evolution with Human Touch

One of the hottest topics that everyone talked about was Artificial Intelligence (AI). It's not just about innovation anymore; it's a must-have to stay competitive in today's digital world. As digital tools keep growing, there's a challenge to find the right balance between embracing new technology and staying true to yourself. The discussions and insights shared at LocWorld emphasized the importance of merging technology with human expertise and touch.

Yet, amidst the technological advancements, the essence of the conference revolved around the balance between technology and human touch in localization.

Besides that, the intersection of AI and the dubbing industry took center stage during the conference. AI dubbing streamlines the traditionally labor-intensive and costly process of re-recording dialogue by using synthesized voices that mimic human-like emotions and tones.

One of the sessions focused on the application of generative models to the world of dubbing, especially in the eLearning sphere. One particularly interesting aspect was the introduction of a people-centered methodology. This approach allows linguists to tweak and use AI-generated voices, combining fancy technology with human intuition. This mix has the potential to change dubbing by making it easier, but way better in quality.

Let us raise our glasses to future conferences, where industry professionals can come together to share their knowledge and experiences, further fueling the evolution of this ever-changing field!
