Project Type: grant

Code: FT-TA3/006

Agency: Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic


English title
Research and development of corpus and speech technologies in new generation of electronic dictionaries

electronic dictionaries, audio corpora, speech recognition, speech synthesis, automatic segmentation, keyword-spotting, text corpora, tagging of corpora, information retrieval


The project is focused on the development of a new generation of electronic dictionaries using advanced large language corpora technologies, and on the user interfaces based on speech recognition. The corpus solutions have so far been used in the research community and they are only slowly finding their way to the target applications, the same holds for voice technologies. The proposed project will allow the R&D group of Lingea s.r.o. a shift in state-of-the-art on the Czech as well as international levels. It will thus valorize the funds so far invested into R&D within Lingea. At the cooperating institution - Faculty of Information Technolology, Brno University of Technology, this project will support important research group: Speech@FIT and it will facilitate the transfer of its results to the industrial world.
