We are very happy at the news that our Unit has been awarded a two year grant to establish a special interest group between industry and academia in Wales in the field of Speech and Language Technologies. (SALT)
The project will provide a boost not only to existing research and development in SALT but also to their commercial exploitation by Welsh industry and businesses both within a bilingual Wales and the multilingual world beyond.
We shall be assisting companies with an interest in the developing their products and services further with Speech and Language Technologies, and will be looking to identify projects which can be undertaken together with Welsh academia. The unit will also aid businesses in applying for funding from appropriate funding sources – a role that our unit has successfully undertaken many times in the past.
In addition the special interest group will allow us to organize a number of seminars for business and academia, where both international speakers and experts from Welsh universities will be invited to share from their expertise.
Keep an eye on this blog for detail of the launch event next month!
