TAUS 2023

TAUS Annual Conference 2023

TAUS Annual Conference 2023 will take place in Salt Lake City, Utah, from 4 October to 6 October, 2023. It is organised by TAUS.


AI is causing a revolution in the language and localization industries. After an incubation period of a few years the full consequences of the Large Language Models are now becoming apparent. This is as big as the invention of the printing press. This year - 2023 - will be remembered as transformational. Everything will change.
