“META Seal of Recognition” 2012 for EML

04.07.2012
EML European Media Laboratory GmbH was awarded the META Seal of Recognition. The META Seal of Recognition recognises excellence in software, products, and services which actively contribute to the European Multilingual Information Society.

At the second META-NET Forum in Brussels, EML European Media Laboratory GmbH was awarded the META Seal of Recognition. The META Seal of Recognition recognises excellence in software, products, and services which actively contribute to the European Multilingual Information Society. The META Technology Council, a panel of 30 experts drawn from the European Language Technology landscape, recognises EML´s contribution to this goal.

At the award ceremony with some 300 people, EML´s R&D manager Dr. Siegfried Kunzmann presented the company, its products and services to the audience. In a letter to EML, John Judge, CIO of META-NET, said: “We’re certain that this award will help raise EML‘s profile and increase recognition with important stakeholders in the European Multilingual Information Society.”

EML European Media Laboratory GmbH is a private IT enterprise established by Klaus Tschira, one of the founders of the SAP AG software company. EML is pursuing research and development in the fields of human-computer interaction and automatic speech processing, with a focus on solutions which automatically convert audio into text like automatic transcription for telephone conversations and voice texting / voice search applications.

META, the Multilingual Europe Technology Alliance brings together researchers, commercial technology providers, private and corporate language technology users, language professionals and other information society stakeholders. META is preparing the necessary ambitious joint effort towards furthering language technologies as a means towards realising the vision of a Europe united as one single digital market and information space.

EML has been a member of META-NET since 2011. Through the EU funded research project “TransLectures” the company is collaborating with META-NET. The aim of the project is to provide user-friendly and cost-effective solutions for transcription and translation of educational video lectures provided in online repositories via the Internet.

The META Seal of Recognition is awarded annually to select products and services which actively contribute to the initiative’s goals. This year is the second time the Seal of Recognition has been awarded at a special ceremony as part of META-FORUM 2012 held in Brussels, Belgium.

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
