Nearly half of all internet websites are in languages other than English. Access to the web and social media continues to propagate to communities where less commonly used languages are used, affording these languages an increasingly more substantial web presence.
For most of these languages, reliable, automatic processing software does not exist. Can you develop an application that can locate foreign language text and speech information relevant to your needs, using queries in English?
The ultimate goal of the challenge is to advance the research and development of human language technologies for lower resourced and computationally underserved languages.
This challenge gives you a chance to join a community of leading experts to advance your research, contribute to research and development in natural language processing, and compete for cash prizes.
