All are cordially invited to a reception for Janet Werker at the Language Science Center. (Her talk is at 10:15am in 1103 Bioscience Research Building.) 

Learn how to run language science demos, and discuss the goals and challenges of outreach. We'll be joined by students and faculty from OSU, UMass, and Arizona who are visiting to volunteer at Family Science Days. 

All are welcome, including undergrads, grad students, and faculty. Please RSVP here so we know how many people to plan for.

Assisting Interpreters with Technical Terms

Abstract: To assist simultaneous interpreters with their work, one needs to find a balance between providing useful information and minimizing distraction. This talk will discuss a simple method for detecting and translating technical terms and a crowdsourced experiment to determine whether the method strikes the right balance for interpreter assistance--without actually using interpreters.
