Panel Discussion Topic: Return on Investment for Human Language Technology in the U.S. Government

Nicholas Bemish, Charles Simmons


Abstract
Government agencies are investing in MT to boost production, but the future funding picture is uncertain. Decision makers (Congress, OMB, IC leadership) want evidence (quantitative/qualitative) of value for investments. Agencies can use positive ROIs to defend MT investment budgets, plans, and programs, but the information needs to be more than anecdotal.
