Reviews and Testimonials
Bangla, or Bengali, is an Indo-Iranian language spoken by over 250 million people, most them on the eastern flank of South Asia surrounding the Bay of Bengal. Bangla language processing is a computer science discipline that seeks to create a robust digital platform for use by the large majority of the Bangla-speaking population who are not conversant in English or the language of their diaspora host, and so cannot access information and communication technology. Computer scientists and engineers who are working on the project discuss such aspects as machine learning approaches for Bangla statistical machine translation, parsing Bangla grammar using context free grammar, the perception of vowels and dental consonants in Bangla speech processing, and the search and study of lexical richness in the Bengali literary collection of Rabindranath Tagore.
