AI Hurts the Ego

But it may help us self-actualize

I constantly hear “Large Language Models just produce statistically average language”, as if that were:

A) Inherently bad

B) Different from what humans do

Then, I also hear “Language is infinite. AI can’t keep up with all of the possibilities”.

We can’t control everything

But that doesn’t mean we can’t control anything.

Welcome to another thought-provoking journey into the heart of change and its inherent tension, as presented by Gabriel Fairmain.

Member-exclusive event, hands-on approach to AI, today, May 3rd

Hi all,

I'm sure you've already received notification from the ProZ.com team, but just a reminder that today, Friday May 3rd, we're having another ProZ/TV event. This one is about AI tools, but rather than talking about the should-we-or-shouldnt-we of the thing, it is more about quick, hands-on information on a variety of tools, designed to help you decide on what to use and how to immediately put it to use. It is a member-only event. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the ideas for the event, and to the members who offered to present and share what they have learned so far. I hope to "see" you there!

We’ve all been there. We are at a celebration for something and out come the bottles:

Venturing beyond: mapping translation and AI with Danielle Sanchez

On International Translation Day weekend in 2023, I met Danielle Sanchez. Coincidence? I don't think so. Danielle had just upgraded her ProZ.com membership to the new Premium monthly option and something told me she knew exactly what she was doing.

But that's not all, since Danielle already had a great website that she created herself, I knew she was up to something else: the AI component also included in Premium. (For more information about the Premium monthly option click here).
