Vistatec Collaborates in Large Multilingual E Services Project
January 16, 2015
Today Vistatec enthusiastically announced it would be an industrial participant in a second substantial and significant European Commission funded Horizon 2020 project.
The €3.2 million, two year project entitled “Open Framework of E services for Multilingual and Semantic Enrichment of Digital Content” (FREME), will see Vistatec collaborating on the design and implementation of a commercial grade, web accessible, linguistic e services platform. The framework will utilize Big Linguistic Open and Linked Data to deliver valuable multilingual resources upon which a range of e services can be built. These services cover use cases which span the digital content life cycle: authoring, translation, curation, publishing and discovery, in addition to bringing some leading edge content technologies and data models to market.
“This is a key project for my team.” said Phil Ritchie, Vistatec’s Chief Technology Officer. “The services that will be delivered during the life of this project will provide us with unique and novel paradigms for the way in which we produce multilingual content for our customers.” The project team includes partners such as the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), the Institute for Applied Informatics (InfAI), and Tilde all fresh from the well publicized success of the Multilingual Web — Language Technologies project.
Ritchie concluded the announcement saying: “Vistatec continues to strive to harness disruptive innovations and apply them in unique ways. I’m very excited to be part of such an experienced and knowledgeable consortium which has considerable potential to deliver technological and economic value to the language industry.”
