Project Description

The development of language technologies is crucial for language survival in the digital age; these tools are the only way to keep participating in the new ways of communication, work and leisure that will be available in the future.

This trend can already be seen in the segment of smart assistants, which we can already talk to today. But this holds true only for a handful of languages (Amazon Alexa – 8 languages, Google Assistant – 13 languages, Apple Siri – 21 languages). With the Development of Slovene in a Digital Environment project, we want to bring Slovene among these selected few.

All programming code and databases produced for this project will be publicly available under an open license. All applications (speech recognition, transcription, machine translation, terminology extraction, and a terminology portal) will be made available on the public DSDE portal (inspired by the Latvian, where anyone can try and use them.
