Leading speech recognition company AppTek and the MLLP research group signed in 2017 a technological support agreement for the provision of consulting services on machine learning and language processing by the MLLP to AppTek. The success of this collaboration has led to a recent extension of the agreement.
On 9-12 April, representatives from all X5gon partners met in Windsor (UK) to discuss progress and future plans for this EU project.
Several international organizations have signed in the last few months contracts for automatic multilingual subtitling services with the MLLP, including the Hasso Plattner Institut (Potsdam, Germany).
The MLLP is a partner in the new EU innovation project X5gon (2017–2020), which was approved with top marks by the European Commission earlier this year. MLLP members were present at the X5gon kick-off meeting in Ljubljana on 20–21 September.
