International Standards for Language Engineering - ISLE

Project Details

Description

EU-US cooperation on HLT standards will build on joint preparatory work, to support all IST themes, HLT RTD and national projects, and HLT industry, by developing, disseminating and promoting widely agreed and urgently demanded
HLT standards and guidelines for infrastructural language resources, tools exploiting them and LE products. The work builds on the successful LRE/LE EAGLES (Expert Advisory Group for Language Engineering Standards), to tackle
standards for multilingual lexicons, natural interaction and multimodal resources (new area requiring early standardisation) and evaluation guidelines for MT. Work is organised in 3 EAGLES Working Groups and several subgroups of experts, drawn from academia and industry to build consensus at int ernational workshops. ISLE standards and guidelines will be validated in RTD and national projects, disseminated widely, yield maximum impact for minimum cost and enhance user experience of the information society through standards-based HLT.

Objectives:
To develop HLT standards, in an international perspective within EU-US International Research Cooperation.
To extend work of two previous successful projects on HLT standards, LRE/LE EAGLES (Expert Advisory Group for Language Engineering Standards), thus continuing necessarily long-term standards work, and tackling innovative areas where standards are strongly required.
To support HLT research and the HLT industry by developing, disseminating and promoting widely agreed and urgently demanded HLT standards and guidelines for infrastructural language resources as well as tools and LE products that
exploit them.
To build on joint preparatory EU-US work of the past 2 years towards setting up an international HLT standards oriented initiative.
To promote EAGLES, initially the focus of individual EC projects, as an internationally active body for HLT standardisation.
To contribute directly or indirectly to all IST key actions.
