‘Rebooting the Greek Language’: Simon Fraser University Launches New Program

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Centre for Hellenic Studies at Simon Fraser University, in Burnaby, British Columbia, with the support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, is launching an internship program in 2018/2019, as part of its new project, ‘Rebooting the Greek Language’.

The ‘Rebooting the Greek Language’ initiative aims to provide a state-of-the-art digital platform for Greek language learning within the Diaspora, through the use of 21st century pedagogy and innovative technology.

The project will feature an internship component that will allow young Greek developers to meaningfully participate in the development of the project’s technology, which will include speech recognition, natural language processing, machine learning, and augmented reality.

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation has provided significant and longstanding support for the Simon Fraser University Hellenic Studies Program, including the creation and endowment of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Centre for Hellenic Studies.
