In line with Plenipotentiary Resolution 154, which instructs the Directors of the Bureaux to report on the use of innovative translation technologies, and considering the specific needs of the Telecommunication Sector, especially the need for the translation of technical meeting documents that are seldom translated by the ITU translation services due to budget limitations, TSB has developed, in collaboration with C&P, an open-source, royalty-free neural machine translation tool, called ITU-Translate, and has trained it with ITU documents. Efforts have also been done to integrate website translation based on external machine translation services.
The market offers several cloud-based machine translation tools. These tools have limitations when it comes to the translation of ITU’s technical content, but which are applicable to general language expression. The project identifies and applies the best tools available per language pair for the translation of general-language webpages that are currently not translated.
C&P and TSB are thus addressing Resolution 154 with the implementation of high-quality gist translation services and enhanced computer-aided-translation (CAT) tools that will complement the scope of the work currently covered by C&P’s human translation service.

The Focus Group on Data Processing and Management to support IoT and Smart Cities & Communities was established by ITU-T Study Group 20 at its meeting in Dubai, 13-23 March 2017.
The accelerating population density in urban areas is increasing the pressure on the existing infrastructures to meet the needs of inhabitants. Accordingly, there is an increasing demand for connected cities with pervasive embedded devices, to improve quality of IoT and SC&C services.
While traditional urban information databases and analytics architectures and infrastructures remain essential, with the growing data management demands, specific capabilities and capacities are required to be able to handle diverse and complex data streams from different sources. This data needs to be processed and managed properly to maximize its value in a secure manner, while complementing it with other information sources.
Urban areas increasingly require defined and comprehensive data processing and management frameworks and guidelines which incorporate reasonable measures to achieve a layered, data-centric paradigm to support SC&C, therefore the Focus Group will conduct research, identify and study characteristics of effective SC&C data management systems, urban data driven strategies will be enabled by data analytics incorporated into data management structure using emerging technologies to support data management and emerging trends including blockchain related to IoT.
Taking into account the data interoperability, classification, format and security issues that affect various stakeholders, this Focus Group plays a role in providing a platform to share views, to develop a series of deliverables, and showcasing initiatives, projects, and standards activities linked to data processing and management and establishment of IoT ecosystem solutions for data focused cities.
The Focus Group on Data Processing and Management to support IoT and Smart Cities & Communities (FG-DPM) invites non ITU-T members to participate in its work to develop deliverables and promote the establishment of data management frameworks.
