Automation, AI, technology have been buzzwords for the past years in all industries, not just in localization. Not long ago Elon Musk, Tesla's CEO, wrote in a tweet: “Yes, excessive automation at Tesla was a mistake. To be precise, my mistake. Humans are underrated”.

AI is actually everywhere: starting from Siri, to Chatbots; from security surveillance to medical diagnosis. However, we often forget one essential concept: “The essence of engineering is people: it is the capacity to design around our human limitations so that we, as a species, can transcend them”. (Dr. Alan Finkel, Chief Scientist for the Australian government)

So how can we organize our workflows to make sure humans are not underrated? How can we transcend human limitations? During our presentation we’ll show how AI can help pushing human limitations further, and how humans can avoid the risks hidden behind “compulsive automation”. An open discussion with the audience will pave the way for new ideas: let’s welcome the new super-human.
