This webinar presented by Dr. Claudio Fantinuoli begins by defining machine interpretation within the wider realm of speech translation; highlighting its main concepts, applications, and features. It introduces essential speech technologies that are used in machine interpreting tools, such as speech recognition and synthesis, and delves into the nuances of cascading, end-to-end, and hybrid system architectures.

The aim is to provide clarity on the fundamental concepts, current technologies, and their respective strengths and shortcomings in the context of today’s machine interpretation landscape.
