SELMA is on the road
SELMA is a project in the field of Human Language Technologies (HLT).
It will help media monitors and journalists make sense of huge content streams (big data analysis) – and also enable them to enrich audiovisual (AV) output through transcription, translation, voice-over and subtitling, thus making it more accessible.
The SELMA consortium aims to build a multilingual open-source platform that can process (very) large volumes of content and will feature a (self) learning AI system that is able to share information about data streams – and keep the added value of each language through a novel approach.
The idea is to create a crosslingual common space, which means: The system will always collect and analyze data in the original language and subsequently translate it into another language upon request.
