Definition of Requirements for Accessing Multilingual Information and Opinions


Published on

With the development of the Internet and satellite television, access to thousands of programs and messages in different languages became widespread. Unfortunately, even well educated people do not speak sufficiently more than two or three foreign languages, while most know only one, and this significantly limits the access to this information. In this paper, we define requirements for an automated system for Accessing Multilingual Information and opinionS (AMIS) that will help in the understanding of multimedia content transmitted in different languages, with simultaneous comparison to counterparts in their native language user. The concept of understanding we use will provide access to any information, regardless of the language in which it is presented. We believe that the AMIS project can have a immense and positive impact on the integration and awareness of society in social and cultural terms.
