6.4.2. United States of America

We have already mentioned LDC and NIST. DARPA / IPTO (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency / Information Processing Techniques Office) supports several HLT evaluation campaigns which include foreign participation and some funded programs also have foreign partners within consortia. The National Science Foundation (NSF) supports several projects dealing with multilingual language processing, including the development of Language Resources. It supports the SILT (Sustainable Interoperability for Language Technology) FLaReNet “sister” project, allowing for international cooperation especially in the field of interoperability. The Center of Spoken Language Understanding at OGI (Oregon Graduate Institute) also produced and distributed to the International Community multilingual LR, such as the one used for evaluating Language Identification systems.
