Lanfrica is a language-focused search engine that makes it fast and easy to find information on the Internet about resources relating to African languages. We aim to catalogue and connect all African language resources, one record at a time.
The impact of language technologies is growing quickly, but the world tends to be mostly moved by larger trends (like very large language models/datasets or research papers from prestigious conferences). As a consequence, smaller, yet impactful efforts do not get much attention.
The Lanfrica Talks series highlights and showcases language technology efforts (research, projects, software, applications, datasets, models, initiatives, etc.) geared towards under-represented languages around the world! We aim to create an online library of knowledge around language technologies and the advancement of African low-resource languages.
