As part of the goal to archive and preserve the local languages, the center will aim at creating speech and text databases for the languages spoken in the North East, specifically the minority languages. The center will be responsible for disseminating information and technology developed in the center at both local and global levels. At the local level, the center will be focused in empowering the local communities in the NE region by making the center’s knowledge and experience available to the communities. At the same time the center will be a nodal center that will involve and mentor other institutions in the area in the field of research and development especially in language analysis and related technology development.
