Dr. Claudio Fantinuoli
Head of Innovation at KUDO Inc. and Lecturer at Mainz University
My main areas of work are computer-assisted human interpreting and real-time machine interpreting, which essentially means that I study and design NLP/AI systems to augment human interpreters and automatically translate speech, with the human user at the center. Personally, I'm passionate about the intersection of mind, brain (including computational) and language.
I studied conference interpreting and I hold a PhD in Applied Linguistics. I have taught at the University of Innsbruck, at the Postgraduate Center of the University of Vienna and at the Karlshochschule International University. My career in NLP/AI started at Eurac Research. Today I'm a lecturer and researcher at the University of Mainz and Head of Innovation at KUDO Inc. I'm also the founder of InterpretBank, a CAI tool for professional interpreters, and a consultant on automatic speech recognition and speech translation for the institutions of the European Union.
