A new MLLP research project, “Multisub: Multilingual subtitling of classrooms and plenary sessions” (2019–2021), has been selected by the Government of Spain for funding under the 2018 Research Challenges call of the Societal Challenges R&D&I Programme 2017–2020.
The MLLP’s Prof. Alfons Juan has been an invited speaker at SCIC-Universities 2019 (SCIC 23; Brussels, 4–5 May 2019), the European Commission’s DG Interpretation annual conference. He presented the MLLP’s experience with automatic multilingual subtitling and language technologies in higher education, at Universitat Politècnica de València and now in EU project X5gon.
On 13-14 March, representatives from all X5gon partners met in Osnabrück (Germany) to discuss progress and future plans for this EU project.
MLLP researchers participated in collaboration with RWTH Aachen colleagues in the IberSpeech-RTVE 2018 TV Speech-to-Text Challenge. We are proud to announce that our systems won both tracks of this international challenge on automatic transcription of TV shows.
