"From 2012 to 2016, the Internet and mobile internet became the infrastructure, and from 2016 to 2018, big data and artificial intelligence rose sharply. In 2019, big data has become a key production element and infrastructure. With the iteration and upgrading of technology, using language technology to serve the cultural & tourism industry will become a breakthrough for the implementation of new technologies in cultural & tourism industries," Mr. Yu said.
According to research data, there were 141 million inbound travelers and 149 million outbound travelers in 2018. Thus, the statistics indicate a tremendous market for language service. "The large demand for cross-language translation services has provided soil for the rapid growth of language-technology services. HAI (Human-centered Artificial Intelligence), people-centric machine translation has built a bridge for communication." According to Mr. Yu, based on its high-quality linguistic data accumulated over the course of 46 years, combined with the innovative exploration of AI and big-data technologies, GTCOM has launched a range of language-technology products represented by LanguageBox (smart conference solution), JoveTrans Mix (intelligent simultaneous interpretation earphones), MerCube (enterprise-level machine translation), YEEKIT (intelligent language technology tool platform) and YeeCaption (one-stop subtitle translation software), as well as a language-technology ecology to empower the intelligent upgrading of the traditional language industry. At the conference, Mr. Yu introduced in detail the methods to empower the intelligent upgrading of the cultural & tourism industry via language technology based on the MerCube, YeeCaption and JoveTrans Mix products.

Through the quantitative analysis of global data, GTCOM has issued big-data research reports including the 2018 Global Risk Report, the "Belt and Road" Country Publication Report and the Analysis and Report on Global Intelligent Healthcare Industry. Additionally, the use of AI image technology to boost the cultural & tourism industry is also an important exploration of GTCOM to empower the high-quality development of the culture-and-tourism industry.
