Content Curation

The potential of Artificial Intelligence, virtual event technology updates, and why cultural etiquette is important


AP | Portugal Tech Language Solutions' content curation not only aims to disseminate knowledge, by embracing this important role, we also take the selection of the best and most valid content in multiple areas very seriously.

Information remains a powerful weapon, even more, in the circumstances around the world these days.


AI-based voice recognition and language translation


India is home to more than a billion people who speak hundreds of different languages and dialects. Almost 75% of the population can read, write, and speak in their native language, and a significant percentage prefer voice-based interactions. These communication barriers present challenges for many in accessing online services, including those services and schemes offered by the Indian government for the masses. 

Cognizant of this, the Indian government announced the National Language Translation Mission was announced, in the Union Budget 2021-22 and aims to develop next-generation, voice-based government apps, and websites that will be operable in all Indian languages.

This move has strongly underlined the potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to solve many challenging problems and creates great scope for cognitive AI, speech recognition, and language translation services in a multilingual market like India.



Artificial intelligence leads Twitter mentions


The applications of artificial intelligence (AI) in medicine, Google’s partnership with Mayo Clinic and how AI can be used to detect cancer were popular topics discussed in Q1 2021. According to an article shared by John Nosta, founder of NostaLab, a digital health think tank, AI has the potential to unlock medical data that may be available via digital health devices and hospital sensors.

Currently only 20-25 AI applications for healthcare have been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which are directly accessible to consumers in the form of digital devices. Some of these devices can detect low-risk conditions, while others are being used along with portable X-ray machines to detect heart or lung anomalies, the article detailed. Although AI is unlikely to replace doctors and clinicians, it can help in making more informed clinical decisions.


Video remote interpreting


Recently, Eugenio Ravelo Mendoza visited a local clinic. When he went into the exam room, a nurse spoke to him. But his eyes were glued to a tablet, not on her. She was frustrated until she realized he was using video remote interpreting (VRI), a service that uses video-conferencing tech to enable a sign language interpreter to aid conversation. Ravelo Mendoza is deaf.

Doctors’ offices often expect to treat patients who are deaf or hard of hearing so they sometimes offer VRI or interpreters that make communicating easier. But mask wearing requirements — needed to slow the spread of COVID-19 — make it harder for deaf and hard of hearing people to communicate.



Cultural etiquette is very important


Not long ago, choosing the right fork at a business meal felt like a momentous pass-or-fail test. Today, with teleconferencing being our new normal, it seems like a charming throwback, but our remote lives have also increased the possibilities for global business to be done. However you do it, cultural etiquette is very important.

Whether traveling abroad or teleconferencing, we all need to be aware of many things — from spoken language to body language — which could help seal the deal or cost you an opportunity.

Whatever you do and wherever you do it, make sure you're thinking about the other person's cultural point of view, and chances are you'll build much better relationships.


The best protocols for conducting safe meetings and events


You can’t have a thriving in-person meetings and conference market if companies are restricting travel—or if your attendees aren’t willing to head out on the road.

Trends are largely moving in the right direction, according to a new poll from the Global Business Travel Association. However, the current timeline for group travel’s recovery isn’t fast enough, says Roger Dow, president and CEO the U.S. Travel Association, which has just released a travel spending forecast, conducted by Tourism Economics, and announced a new campaign, “Let’s Meet There.”


Virtual event technology updates


Innovation and investment continue to fuel the meeting technology scene. Here are six developments raising the bar on virtual and hybrid event options.
