Public Release of Haitian Creole Language Data by Carnegie Mellon
The Language Technologies Institute (LTI) of Carnegie MellonUniversity's School of Computer Science (CMU SCS) is making publiclyavailable the Haitian Creole spoken and text data that we havecollected or produced. We are providing this data with minimalrestrictions (see license) in order to allow others to develop languagetechnology for Haiti, in parallel with our own efforts to help with thiscrisis. Since organizing the data in a useful fashion is notinstantaneous, and more text data is currently being produced bycollaborators, we will be publishing the data incrementally on the web,as it becomes available.
Jeff AllenAdvisory Board, LINGUIST-ListAssisting CMU to release this data that our team created 12 years ago,and to create additional data and translation systems for Haiti.
