Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) November 06, 2013
Is your enterprise too English-centric in this global economy? More than 20% of Americans speak a language other than English at home, half of Europeans don’t speak English at all and just 20% of web users speaking 6,000 languages speak English as a first language.
Brian Garr, CEO of LinguaSys, Inc., who previously led IBM efforts in voice and machine translation for a decade, will speak at Miami’s Big Data & Innovation Conference, November 13-14, about using cost effective multilingual technologies to profit by understanding all of your customers on social media.
Garr is a frequent expert speaker on voice and translation technologies, and an author of articles for magazines and books concentrating on global natural language processing challenges, including the recently published Where Humans Meet Machines: Innovative Solutions for Knotty Natural-Language Problems. Prior to joining IBM, Garr was the Chief Technology Officer for Globalink, based in Virginia. He was honored with the “Heroes in Technology” award in 1998 by the Smithsonian Institute along with Computerworld Magazine.
At Garr’s #BIGDMI Summit session, (11:00 am Wednesday, November 13) attendees will learn about multilingual technologies including cross-lingual search, native language sentiment analysis, native language entity extraction, understanding best practices and identifying which technologies add maximum value for specific searches.
