The future of translation (technology)
If you don't know Ray Kurzweil (US) yet, this might be the time to introduce him to you. Kurzweil has extensive expertise in fields as varied as "optical character recognition (OCR), text-to-speech synthesis, speech recognition technology, and electronic keyboard instruments", making him a possible consultant of a virtual merger of SciCom and MScTrans ;-). He has published several books on "health, artificial intelligence (AI), transhumanism, the technological singularity, and futurism." (I'm afraid the quotes are taken from the dreaded W). You can find an interview with Ray Kurzweil on the future of localisation and translation technology here.
