Purpose and goal

The project develops new AI methods in textual understanding and dialogues that enable students to learn the professional language much more effectively. It is a unique project constellation with KTH being responsible for the research, which is implemented in Lingio´s award-winning language app, which is then evaluated with users at a number of companies in different industries, including in healthcare, public transport and the hotel industry, where there is a great need to hire from the target group and where the professional language is an important factor in managing the job.

Expected results and effects

The project will result in innovative NLP- and ML-based text, dialogue and pronunciation exercises that teach users to communicate in important situations at work. The users will be able to interact with a language app developed by Lingio and with exercises using the AI methods developed in the project. The societal effects are great as citizens who need support with the language can more effectively learn professional Swedish for their particular profession, which leads to more people entering the labor market and existing employees being able to manage their work better.

Planned approach and implementation

During the project, continuous collaboration will take place between need owners, researchers and the development team. Based on a detailed needs analysis, AI research is planned and then implemented in a language app. Lingio develops user interfaces and interactive design and implements the AI methods developed by the research team at KTH. Qualitative evaluation is carried out on a continuous basis by staff at companies in a number of different industries and their feedback is used to iteratively improve both the research results and the language app´s functions and user interface.
