Kennen Sie schon … die LanguageARC?

Die Lan­guageARC ist eine „Lan­guage Analy­sis Research Com­mu­ni­ty“, die bere­its mehrere Cit­i­zen-Sci­ence-Pro­jek­te ver­fol­gt und an der sich alle an Sprache Inter­essierte beteili­gen kön­nen:

Human lan­guage tech­nolo­gies, or com­put­er pro­grams that can pro­duce, mod­i­fy, or respond to human texts and speech, can help but rely on lan­guage resources: dic­tio­nar­ies, gram­mars, texts and audio record­ings that are absent or scarce for most of the world’s 7000 lan­guages.

Lan­guageARC is work­ing to fix that prob­lem, and you can help. Near­ly all humans on the plan­et speak, read, under­stand, or write at least one lan­guage qual­i­fy­ing them to con­tribute to this effort. Lan­guageARC fea­tures projects span­ning a wide vari­ety of lan­guages in which par­tic­i­pants can con­tribute through com­plet­ing activ­i­ties such as speech record­ings, pro­nun­ci­a­tion tasks, and dialect sur­veys. Lan­guage data from par­tic­i­pants is then col­lect­ed for research, edu­ca­tion, and tech­nol­o­gy devel­op­ment pur­pos­es.

The activ­i­ties are designed so that you can con­tribute some­thing in just a few min­utes while on the bus, dur­ing lunch break or when­ev­er. The more you con­tribute, the more we are able to under­stand about lan­guage.

Lan­guage ARC was devel­oped by the Lin­guis­tic Data Con­sor­tium at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Penn­syl­va­nia based upon work sup­port­ed by the Nation­al Sci­ence Foun­da­tion under Grant No. 1730377.

Im Blog gibt es aktuelle Mel­dun­gen rund um die Lan­guageARC, die auch auf Insta­gram, X/Twitter, Face­book und YouTube vertreten ist.
