Multilingual Europe Technology Alliance

Vision Group: Interactive Systems

The Vision Groups are a central instrument within META-NET. Vision Groups meet twice a year to generate domain-specific visions and roadmaps in the form of technology forecasts. This includes ideas for innovative applications of language technology and scenarios for the future knowledge society. The groups were assembled in an effort to cluster the relevant and most promising European Language Technology-related industry sectors into reasonably sized working groups.
