LBDA to develop an international Collaborative Innovation Network
  • Eric Yu, secretary-general of Language Big Data Alliance (LBDA) and CEO of worldwide Tone Communication Technology Co., Ltd. (GTCOM), spoke at LBDA’s 2017 annual conference in Guangzhou on April 8, in hindsight at LBDA’s progress in the past year then into its future.

    An international organization with well-structured partnership

    LBDA made much headway in each and every field it reached in the founding year of 2016.

    According to Eric Yu, LBDA continues to be moving fast towards the purpose of becoming an international organization since its inception, striving to create itself higher quality and more influential on the planet. Its membership has covered some globally renowned universities including University of Vienna, University of Geneva, and Gazi University.

    Now LBDA has 138 members as well as the number is predicted to keep growing.

    LBDA Europe is scheduled to be established later this year to market resource-sharing, exchanges, and organization of international events among its member organizations worldwide.

    An international platform for collaboration and resource-sharing
    LBDA has run more than 30 projects in the last year in these fields as speech recognition, machine translation, and analysis of big data, said Eric Yu. Over these projects, universities and businesses worked together on translation assignments involving when using 50 million characters.

    One specific project marked a milestone in the Chinese history of translation: 750 translators from 58 universities - LBDA members - completed the translation of subtitles for 50,000-minute videos in only 7 days. More projects take presctiption the way.


    LBDA also seeks to facilitate the exchanges between its members as well as their counterparts abroad.

    At FIT Congress 2017 to be locked in Brisbane, Australia in August this season, LBDA - a high partner from the congress - will invite representatives in the world’s top research institutes to talk about the future of the translation industry.

    To summarize, Eric Yu unveiled the plan for LBDA’s future development.

    The entire year of 2017 is going to be focused on the “sharing and exchange of resources worldwide”. LBDA will build an online platform for its members to share with you and exchange resources collectively.

    Moreover, the inaugural meeting of LBDA Europe is going to be located in Switzerland in September this year.

    Europe’s leading universities and research institutes such areas as journalism, psychology, neurology, medicine, language, and business could be the founding members of LBDA Europe, and joint labs on machine translation, speech recognition, big data and artificial intelligence (AI) will probably be established included in this. A host of key collaborative research findings will also be announced in the meeting.

    LBDA Europe will surely help foster collaborative innovation among Chinese joint labs and the leading universities and research institutes of other countries.
