Language Technologies


Challenge 4: Technologies for Digital Content and Languages

Digital content remains the material basis for a multilingual knowledge based society. However the explosive growth of digital content (both structured and unstructured) makes it important for European citizens and organisations to learn to manage it effectively and to extract from it maximum value in terms of private or public, personal or organisation decision making, planning and management. Call 10 addresses more specifically the exploration and testing of new approaches, methods and techniques to extract, interpret and exploit information from unsstructured multilingual and/or multimedia sources, yielding actionable knowledge.

Objective 4.1 : Content analytics and language technologies

Due to the combined effect of globalisation and European integration, there is a growing need for effective solutions that support multilingual business and inter-personal communication, and enable people accessing digital services in Europe's many languages. Target outcomes are:

  • Cross-media content analytics
  • High-quality machine translation
  • Natural spoken and multimodal interaction
  • Developing joint plans and services
