Despre eveniment

At least 21 European languages are in danger of digital extinction due to a severe lack of technology support, concluded the META-NET 2012 report prepared by a group of more than 230 experts from all over Europe.

For the past decade, the introduction of neural technologies in automatic translation has precipitated a revolution in digital language services, allowing for ever faster and more accurate automatic speech recognition (ASR) and machine translation (MT) results. Yet, a stark imbalance persists in ASR and MT quality between the five most spoken EU languages (English, French, German, Spanish and Italian), and the remaining 19 official EU languages.

This digital inequality further increases when regional and minority languages are considered, leading to a dearth of online technological support, both in spoken (audio, video) and written (text) form. As digital services become an ever so integral part of our lives, such digital language inequalities could eventually threaten EU language survival itself.

This STOA event aims to explore the research and development environment of language technologies in the context of EU multilingualism. It will present the results of a recently-concluded EU European Language Equality (ELE) project, which proposed a roadmap towards achieving full digital language equality by 2030.
