Last month, DW participated in the swihack in Bern/Switzerland, hosted by SWI swissinfo.ch. Kay Macquarrie (of DW Innovation) and Elisabetta Tollardo (DW’s Head of Infographics) joined journalists, designers, developers and linguists, from the BBC, SWI, and NZZ to tackle some of the challenges faced by multilingual newsrooms. Participants spent two days developing solutions and better tools – ideally with an open source concept. In this post, we’re documenting the great work done by Kay’s and Elisabetta’s teams.

The name sounds very haute cuisine, but the only pot the GoURMET consortium will be stirring is that of Global Under-Resourced Media Translation: Started in January 2019 and funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 program, our latest human language technology (HLT) effort is all about improving the robustness and applicability of neural machine translation (NMT) to low resource languages and domains.

If you’ve been following this blog, you’ve probably heard of SUMMA, one of our biggest and most succesful language technology projects so far. Over the course of three years, the SUMMA consortium (= DW and 8 other partners) has built a comprehensive platform for multilingual media monitoring. But what does that mean exactly? And how will the software benefit newsrooms? Our explainer video can answer those questions in less than two minutes:

“So what are the most important developments in journo tech right now? Which tools and concepts will help us create really interesting content? And what about improving production workflows?” That’s a set of questions we get quite often. Providing definitive answers is impossible. What we can do, however, is share a couple of insights from our work. Here’s a list of tech that struck us as particularly interesting, promising, or useful this year.

AI-driven human language technology (HLT) is getting a lot of attention these days. And since we’re involved in several projects dealing with topics like automatic speech recognition (ASR), neural machine translation (NMT), or summarization, it means we’re frequently asked to share insights and do networking at HLT events. This week, we’re actually headed to three workshops in two cities:

Making audiovisual/broadcasting content available in virtually any language – this is the goal of news.bridge, yet another human language technology (HLT) undertaking of ours that was kicked off in late January.

Since we’re part of a multilingual media company, Human Language Technologies (HLT) have been a focus in our projects for more than a decade. Truth be told: Results haven’t been anywhere near operational requirements. Up until now.
Following a mash-up concept – i.e. a concept of combining existing tools rather than designing new software from scratch – Latvian News Agency LETA and we have teamed up for a very promising project called speech.media.
It’s funded by the Google Digital News Initiative (DNI) and aims to create an innovative prototype platform able to handle a full workflow of automated processes of transcription, translation, and voiceover in a large number of languages.
