Machine Translation for African Languages
Machine Translation for African Languages.
Who is the session for? This session is for anybody who has an interest in AI applied in the context of African Languages, for their promotion and preservation.
I want to expose a problem, a societal one: the fact that current AI is still English-centric, while our languages in Africa are endangered to extinction. Then expose solutions and efforts I, and other talented people are putting in place to tackle this challenge and put Africa on the NLP map. Finally, I hope to inspire others, find people to support us in our works.
