Project Name: Twenty-One: Development of a Multimedia and Multilingual Information Transaction and Dissemination Tool

Abbreviation: Twenty-One

Start date: January 1, 1998

End date: February 1, 2000

Project Description:


Project Twenty-One aims at the improvement of the distribution and use of multimedia documents. The tools to be devloped should facilitate access to information for readers who are not native speakers of the language in which they are written. The project will focus on the domain of sustainable development and ecology, but the technology developed by the project will be domain independent. At a technical level, improved document access will be achieved by use of approved natural language processing technology, knowledge-based image analysis, and telecommunication-based information technology, as developed in earlier national and European projects. The technology will not only make use of the current infrastructure and de facto standards on Internet, but will also contribute to standardisation within the new generation of Internet tools and applications.
