Nowadays, the quality and the size of Data play a key role on the model training and testing of Industrial research and development of human language technologies. However, due to the high cost and long time of building works, the huge data become valuable resources. Effective solution on getting these huge data resources will not only significantly improve the quality of technologies but also speed up the extent of commercialization. Based on years of experience on huge data resources building works, some effective solutions on the huge data collecting and processing are highly praised by customers for their significant time and cost reductions.

In this seminar, by a general introduction on Speechocean we will discuss several solutions on how to build the huge data by considering the practical industrial developing demands in the fields of speech technology, web search, natural language computing (NLC), machine translation(MT) and patter recognition technologies and etc and will also share several remarkable data in 40+ languages as an example.

Several Highlights of the presentation will be presented as follows:

  1. Huge speech data resources building and solutions for Speech technologies (TTS and ASR).
  2. Special large text data resources and solution on NLC and MT technologies
  3. Special solution on the web data processing for search technology.
  4. Large image data resource and processing on pattern recognition technologies.
  5. Other linguistic resources regarding the industrial R&D regarding HLT technologies
