EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT: THE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE OF TRANSLATED, FBK AND PERVOICE FOR REAL-TIME TRANSLATION OF DEBATES
Translated, a leading company in the world of translation, together with Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK), a world leading research center in Machine Translation (MT) and Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR), and PerVoice, a world leader in ASR technologies, controlled by Almawave, an Almaviva Group company, has been selected by the European Parliament to automatically transcribe and translate multilingual parliamentary debates in real time, covering the 24 official languages used by the institution, thus facilitating communication between members and opening discussions to all EU citizens, including people with disabilities.
The service will be provided by a new technology available through fully translated web and mobile applications and third-party developer APIs. This will be the first automatic speech translation system to keep the human in the process, leveraging context and user feedback to adapt the output in less than 1 second.
“For over 20 years, innovation has been the driving force of PerVoice, with strong investments in research and development to make our ASR applications evolve – says Paolo Paravento, CEO of PerVoice – Being selected by the European Parliament means for us to have demonstrated the high performance of our technologies, breaking down language barriers and allowing communication between people in real time».
