Eric Yu, secretary-general of Language Big Data Alliance (LBDA) and CEO of worldwide Tone Communication Technology Co., Ltd. (GTCOM), spoke at LBDA’s 2017 annual conference in Guangzhou on April 8, in hindsight at LBDA’s progress before year and then into its future.
An international organization with well-structured partnership
LBDA made much headway in most field it reached within the founding year of 2016.
According to Eric Yu, LBDA has been moving fast for the objective of just as one international organization since its inception, striving to make itself also known and much more influential in the world. Its membership has covered some globally renowned universities including University of Vienna, University of Geneva, and Gazi University.
Now LBDA has 138 members as well as the number is expected to keep growing.
LBDA Europe is planned to be established later this year to promote resource-sharing, exchanges, and organization of international events among its member organizations worldwide.
A worldwide platform for collaboration and resource-sharing
LBDA has run more than 30 projects within the last year such fields as speech recognition, machine translation, and analysis of massive data, said Eric Yu. In these projects, universities and businesses worked together on translation assignments involving when using 50 million characters.
One particular project marked a milestone in the Chinese history of translation: 750 translators from 58 universities - LBDA members - completed the translation of subtitles for 50,000-minute videos in just a week. More projects are on the way.
LBDA also seeks to facilitate the exchanges between its members and their counterparts in other countries.
At FIT Congress 2017 being located in Brisbane, Australia in August this year, LBDA - a high partner from the congress - will invite representatives from the world’s top research institutes to speak about not able to the translation industry.
In closing, Eric Yu unveiled the master plan for LBDA’s future development.
The season of 2017 will probably be focused on the “sharing and exchange of resources worldwide”. LBDA will build an internet platform for the members to talk about and exchange resources with each other.
Moreover, the inaugural meeting of LBDA Europe will probably be locked in Switzerland in September this year.
Europe’s leading universities and research institutes in these areas as journalism, psychology, neurology, medicine, language, and business could be the founding members of LBDA Europe, and joint labs on machine translation, speech recognition, big data and artificial intelligence (AI) will probably be established among them. A number of key collaborative research findings may also be announced at the meeting.
LBDA Europe will surely help foster collaborative innovation among Chinese joint labs and the leading universities and research institutes of other countries.
