Jointly with GALA we created an online form in which we invited all attendees (translation buyers, LSPs, developers and translators) to reply to a few questions and leave a comment about how machine translation has impacted their lives. It can be a comment about a positive experience, a concern about their current profession in terms of workload, speed or rates, an opinion about the current hype, etc. We will compile and analyze all replies and comments and, using AI (sentiment analysis), will display some graphics (% of positive/negative comments) as well as the most controversial comments in a short informal engaging session in which we will invite all attendees to open up and share their experiences.
