GALE - Global Autonomous Language Exploitation

The goal of the DARPA GALE program is to produce a system that is able to automatically take multilingual newscasts, text documents, and other forms of communication, and make their information available to human queries.

GALE has three major technical challenges:

  • automatic speech recognition, to process audio data,
  • machine translation, to translate non-English data, and
  • distillation, to extract the most useful pieces of information related to a given query.
