ISE 2023 to Become World’s First Event to Offer KUDO’s AI-Powered Speech Translator for Its Keynotes

(Friday, 27th January 2023, New York City, NY) In a first for the world’s largest AV show, attendees of Integrated Systems Europe (ISE)’s keynotes this year will be able to experience KUDO AI – a real-time, AI-powered Speech Translator (patent pending) – in five languages from their smartphones It will mark the first time this ground-breaking solution is offered at an international event since its recent announcement by language and technology experts, KUDO.

On the Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of the event, ISE will for the third time reinforce its inclusive and international nature by allowing attendees to experience the show’s keynotes in their own language. With translation being provided by KUDO AI this time, attendees will have the option to select the language of their choice in which to hear speakers BK Johannessen, Stephen Nuttall, and Fran Chuan covering topics from the games industry to live sport broadcasting and AV innovation. All speech translation will be powered entirely by AI and offered to attendees for free by downloading the KUDO app on their smartphones. Available languages will include French, Spanish, German, and Portuguese.

“As the largest AV and systems integration show in the world, innovation lies at the core of ISE”, says Mike Blackman, Managing Director of Integrated Systems Europe. “We are happy to be ahead of the game in making our keynotes more global and inclusive through the use of AI”.

KUDO, the world leader in multilingual technology solutions, is driven by the vision to give everyone the power to understand and be understood in their own language. This vision is reflected in their in-house development of KUDO AI – organizations’ answer to having to communicate in ‘business English’ (which accounts for 95% of internal and external meetings globally). The user-friendly technology aims to make language more accessible and cost-effective, thereby extending KUDO’s own values of inclusion, productivity, and growth to others. 

KUDO will be exhibiting in the ISE at booth CS178, where visitors will have the opportunity to sign up for early access to KUDO AI ahead of its public launch in Q1 of this year. Fardad Zabetian, KUDO’s co-founder and CEO, will also be available to showcase the solution on-site. 

“Completing our ‘hat-trick’ with the ISE, this might be our most exciting year collaborating with the show yet”, says Zabetian. “We are very excited for ISE attendees to experience real-time speech translation with KUDO AI. This is a first not just for ISE but for the events industry as a whole. It represents a key milestone in the transformative language technology space”. 

ISE’s keynotes will take place as follows:
Tuesday 31 January, 17:15, Conference Suite CC4.1
Wednesday 1 February, 17:30, Conference Suite CC5.1
Thursday 2 February, 17:15, Conference Suite CC4.1
