Aims of the RMA

Establish a Resource Management Agency with a view:

  • To function as a single depository point for various types of electronic data of the official languages of South Africa for research and development purposes in the field of human language technologies (HLTs). The data types may include broad categories such as text, speech, language related video, multimodal resources including sign language as well as pathological and forensic language data;
  • To function as the official language resource management and distribution point of data related to HLTs for all of the South African official languages. Ongoing projects of DAC will require all project data to be deposited and managed by the RMA so as to prevent data loss and to promote reusability of the data; and
  • To position South Africa strategically with respect to collaboration with other similar agencies worldwide, with the long term vision of becoming the hub for language resource management in Africa.
