Language Technology is shaping our multilingual future. It has already been transforming the way we interact with each other, the way we shop, work and travel. More and more it reshapes our interaction with digital services, either public or private. Programs that automatically correct spelling errors and aid sophisticated writing, digital assistants that transform our voices to text messages on mobile phones, bots that answer our calls to the bank or to our social security organisation, systems that automatically translate from a foreign language, and much more, are already empowering our everyday lives, our businesses and our administrations. But do the existing solutions allow us to use our own language in all digital interactions? Are they really ready for use yet? And is our language adequately supported and ready to keep pace with the technological advancements of the AI era?
The second Luxembourgish European Language Resource Coordination (ELRC) workshop will address these questions and it will seek to engage participants in a fruitful discussion on the status and prospects of Language Technology for Luxembourgish. Developers, integrators and users of Language Technology, both from the private and public sector will share experiences, requirements and ways for transforming digital interaction in our multilingual Europe with Language Technologies. Finally, we will discuss how language data, i.e. texts and speech, can fuel development in Artificial Intelligence.
This workshop will be held online
