Gaming Apps – More than just for fun!
Region: Southeast Asia
Competency: Human Language Technology
ILAD is partnering with a for-profit language technology center in Southeast Asia to produce digital tools for low-resourced language communities. Using gamified apps, language data is collected that can then be analyzed and “taught” to a computer to produce translations in to more widely spoken languages. This technology can be scaled to help thousands of speakers in low resourced language communities gain access to information they did not previously have and give them a voice in the global conversation.
