Bridging the Language Divide
Professor Alex Waibel, Carnegie Mellon & Karlsruhe Institute of Technology
Director of International Center on Advanced Communication Technologies (InterACT). Founder & Chairman, Mobile Technologies, LLC
As our world becomes increasingly interdependent and globalisation brings people together more than ever, it's no longer
the 'digital divide' that separates us, but the 'language divide' and its associated cultural differences. Using our mobile
phones we could connect with everyone, if only we shared a common language and a common understanding. Yet forcing uniformity
is neither realistic nor desirable. Can technology provide an answer?
