Luxembert will help other AI understand Luxembourgish

Luxembert is an artificial intelligence created with one clear purpose. It will translate Luxembourgish texts into code so that other machines can understand it. This AI was developed at the University of Luxembourg in collaboration with BGL BNP Paribas and the Alphonse Weicker Foundation.

As fintech develops across the world, communication between companies and customers increasingly takes place online. Often this communication can be reduced to a series of questions and answers, which are handled by chatbots. However, in order for a chatbot to learn how to behave properly in a dialogue with a customer and how give the right answers, it must understand what’s wanted from it. That’s a difficult task for the Luxembourgish language. It’s younger than English or German, not as common and, until recently, didn’t have a decent NLP (natural language processing) network focused on it.

Luxembert changes that with its language model of the Grand Duchy. The source code of this AI is open for tinkering and available for free. This means that any business or individual can access it and use it for their needs.
