We had done some work with our Yerevan partners. But a week later, the accursed war began. After the war, we did not break down, we found strength in ourselves; we decided to continue this important initiative with greater enthusiasm, because the digitalization of language in the 21st century also has security significance. And we are ready to generalize this great initiative. During this year we have implemented voice synthesis, speech recognition, machine translation projects and Armenian Big Date,” Diana Movsisyan said, in particular.
