Pre-Standardization Studies for Indian Language Resources

Reduce cost structures and support interoperability between multiple languages


The focus of this Industry Connections program is the identification of use cases that could lead to proposals for standards to govern language resources for Indian languages. Language resources include speech, language data, and descriptions which are made available in a machine readable form and used for developing, evaluating, and improving algorithms in the area of natural language and speech processing. Such standards can also be used for language studies, localization of software, electronic publishing, and any purpose for researchers, subject area specialists, etc. Examples of language resources are spoken and written corpora, computational lexica, terminology databases, etc. The work will also include any tools that are used for the above stated purposes.
