Claudio Fantinuoli, PhD.
Researcher, Innovator and Founder in Speech Technologies
My areas of work are computer-assisted human interpreting and real-time machine interpreting (speech translation), which essentially means that I design and study Artificial Intelligence 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.
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 Natural Language Processing during my time at Eurac Research and as founder of InterpretBank, a CAI tool for professional interpreters. My journey continues with a position as a tenured researcher at the University of Mainz, a role as Chief Technology Officer at KUDO Inc., and as a consultant for international institutions, including the European Parliament, for machine translation and speech recognition.
