2015 is set to be very industrious for my Research and Development Team.
On the development side we have ambitious plans for a substantial amount of distributed, cloud based automation and integration. It’s exciting but at the same time a little frustrating as so much of the code will have to be written as opposed to being available in existing libraries. Our first distributed, cloud platform, Synthesis, has lived up to expectations and delivered cost and time savings, scalability and reliability. The new event and action rules engine will provide powerful and flexible real-time configuration. This has set a high bar for the new systems but I am optimistic and enthusiastic to get started.
From a research perspective, in addition to a targeted project with the new ADAPT Centre, we will kick off a European Commission Horizon 2020 project code named “FREME” (Open Framework of E-Services for Multilingual and Semantic Enrichment of Digital Content). This is an exciting opportunity to work again with the Deutsches Forschungszentrum für Künstliche Intelligenz (DFKI), the Instituts für Angewandte Informatik (InfAI)and Tilde as well as some new collaborators.
Ocelot will restate its commitment to industry standards and interoperability by supporting XLIFF 2.0. It will also form a prototype client for some of the envisioned FREME services.
Before that however, is a well earned break and the chance to play with some tools and books Santa got for me: JetBrains’ WebStorm, “Python 3 Text Processing with NLTK 3 Cookbook”, and “AngularJS UI Development” from Packtpub.
If you celebrate Christmas, have a wonderful one!
