Title:Panacea: Platform for Automatic, Normalized Annotation and Cost- Effective Acquisition of Language Resources for Human Language Technologies
Duration:January 1st 2010 -- December 31st 2012
Funded by:Seventh Framework Programme (FP7)
People:Andy Way, Josef van Genabith
Description: A strategic challenge for Europe in today's globalised economy is to overcome language barriers through technological means. In particular, Machine Translation systems are expected to have a significant impact in the managing of multilingualism in Europe. Panacea is facing the most critical aspect for Machine Translation to produce this expected impact in Europe: the so-called resources bottleneck. MT technologies are in themselves language independent, but they are inherently tied to the availability of language dependent resources.
