A New European Project to Boost Multilingual Internet ­se

View as: Print Mobile App Share:

The European Monnet project is building multilingual ontologies to retrieve and present information across languages, as well as to meet industry and governmental needs to better use the information on the Internet. The project, a collaboration between European organizations and higher education institutions led by the Ontology Engineering Group at the Universidad Politecnica de Madrid's School of Computing, will focus on business intelligence and public-sector applications.

The main goal of the business intelligence side of the project is to provide access to industry solutions and financial information about businesses across languages. The primary goal of the public sector-related uses of the project will be applying the Monnet's technologies and methodologies to applications providing multilingual access to government information and public services.

The project's major challenges revolve around setting up the infrastructure and formalisms for representing and accessing knowledge across languages. Monnet project researchers will try to solve these problems by providing a semantics-based solution for integrated information management and access across language barriers.
