Innovator, Researcher and Founder in Speech Technologies

Claudio Fantinuoli

If you would like to invite me to speak, get in touch here.

My 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 translate speech automatically, with the human user at the center. Personally, I'm passionate about the intersection of mind, brain (including computational) and language.

Short biography
I have a background in conference interpreting and have earned a PhD in Applied Linguistics, as well as an Habilitation in Interpreting Studies. My academic experience includes teaching roles at the University of Innsbruck, the Postgraduate Center of the University of Vienna, and the Karlshochschule International University. I ventured into the fields of NLP and AI during my time at Eurac Research and as founder of InterpretBank, a CAI tool for professional interpreters. My journey continued with a position as a tenured researcher at the University of Mainz a role as Head of Innovation and CTO at KUDO Inc., and as a consultant for international institutions, including the European Parliament in the field of Digital Transformation.
