Data is the fuel that language technologies run on. Data, and more data is the essential ingredient in driving AI-based communication empowering language technologies. Services such as machine translation, speech translation, information retrieval, question answering and smart chatbots are key to enhance and support multi lingual communication and drive development for business, and inclusion and outreach for governments and their citizens .

The quality and quantity of data determines the capacity of AI systems to understand and process human language, which in turn determines how and where this cutting-edge technology can be used.

Big Data significantly improves the quality of language technologies. Improved language technologies mean better tools for wider communication and broader usefulness. This in turn opens up exciting new possibilities such as a whole ecosystem of AI language technologies: almost human quality machine translation, speech translation and smart chatbots which are available from a single platform.

This session will contribute to imagine and share how these tools will help for European public administration entities and their inhabitants work better and faster to exchange and publish information across borders with no more languages barriers.

A broad panel of stakeholders will discuss how data leverages the drive to innovation in AI language technologies, and the profound ways that small and large businesses, EU and national administrations can benefit from the results.
