Keelerobot / Language robot

The product created by the Academy of Security Sciences is one of the kind language simulator whish uses the voice recognition as a language tool for professional language training for Boarder guards here in Estonia and probably across Europe in the near future. The simulator trains common professional language expressions used in the border guard work. Students can train their language skills online separately or in a blended way in existing language courses. The program recognizes the quality of speech spoken by the participant and assesses the quality of that (if the sentence was understandable from costumer side). Right know the language robot beta version has only one language (English) but our aim is to further develop and within 3 years the product should be available in at least 20 different languages. Already a great interest has been shown by European security agencies like Frontex and Cepol and the product should have huge user group and give a valuable investment to European Internal Security in order to improve the quality of public service. The language robot is a perfect example of uniting different competencies of Universities and private sector. The original idea was developed in Public Service Academy by the language centre and with the help of Tallinn Technical University and the private company „Jukulab“.
