Intelligent multi-lingual speech-technology based e-gov applications
Project Principal Investigator(s): Dr. V. Ramasubramanian
Research and Development of Intelligent multi-lingual (Kannada, Hindi, English) voice-enabled access to e-gov portal services and gateways, e.g. Rich transcription of spoken corpus, Spoken-dialog information retrieval system and Language translation engines – including the following:
a) Kannada / multi-lingual (Indian languages) speech engines,
b) Rich transcription of spoken language corpus, telephony speech using such speech-engines (e.g broad-cast news, surveillance of telephony speech, parliamentary proceedings, educational and entertainment archives etc.) and,
c) develop spoken dialog systems for information retrieval via web/mobile interactive e-governance ‘information service gateways’ in local language (Kannada) allowing access to citizen-users to avail such data/services of the State. The solution would have functionalities that can serve as a show-case for lateral transfer to other States’ e-governance / regional languages across the country.
d) develop local-language –to– English / Indian language – to–Indian language translation solutions for e-gov applications (e-gov document processing, citizen user interfaces etc.)
