Thousands of data sets
The ELG will offer the largest collection of data sets and language resources. Users will be able to search for and download data sets, corpora, language models and source code.
The whole community is invited to share their resources through the ELG, making them available using different licensing and access models, depending on their needs.
Hundreds of LT services
The ELG will provide running LT services that can be tested and deployed directly through the grid – from machine translation to named entity recognition and summarisation, from basic linguistic processing to sentiment analysis and dependency parsing.
The ELG will provide tools for spoken language, including speech recognition and synthesis. We will support various European languages and enable providers to share their services with potential customers.
The yellow pages for European LT
ELG intends to become the proverbial yellow pages for the European Language Technology landscape. Our goal is to list all relevant stakeholders from research, innovation and technology. Stakeholders will be able to register themselves in the ELG’s freely accessible catalogue, ensuring vastly increased reach and visibility.
Users will be able to filter and search for organisations, domains, sectors, regions, countries, languages, service types, data sets and more.
Scalable LT grid
ELG will be the first large-scale Language Technology platform applying containerisation through Kubernetes.
All required components and libraries can be included in a single container, ensuring that the service will operate as foreseen by its developer. The powerful ELG infrastructure will be able to receive, manage and run many images in parallel.
National competence centres
ELG set up 32 National Competence Centres to establish a strong European network. They act as regional bridges to the project.
The NCCs support ELG in collecting regional information about companies, research centres, resources, services and projects. They organise regional ELG workshops and promote ELG in their area and establish bridges to funding agencies.
Open calls for pilot projects
ELG will organise two open calls for pilot projects, verifying the platform’s usefulness and broadening ELG’s spectrum of technologies.
The pilot projects will develop missing services for languages underrepresented in the ELG.
