Human-Machine Coevolution
How to Thrive in an Era of Accelerating Technological Change

Keynote speech at the GALA 2013 Conference in Miami, FL.

In our global world of rapid technological change, the need for clear and deep communication has never been more urgent. Whether for personal interests or to implement professional services, today we have the opportunity to bridge the language barriers with computer based tools that complement our own knowledge and skills. Nobody is more exposed to this than professionals and enterprises in the localization industry, which broadly defined, is the bedrock of globalization. Being able to ride the incoming waves of change is a function of smart adaptation and adoption in a co-evolving, rich ecosystem of dynamic, flexible solutions.
