biased opinions about how translators will lose their jobs with machine translation. I felt comfortable being there.
It was also nice to be in a place of having a genuine discussion about topics such as machine translation, AI, and automation.
It also seemed that everyone was not thinking much about a profit per se.
I felt out of place because I didn’t know

so I felt at home lol.
I would love to participate again if I had
