ISSCO - Dalle Molle Institute for Semantic and Cognitive Studies, Geneva

Located in Geneva, ISSCO was created by the Dalle Molle Foundation in 1972 with the aim of perfecting an automated IT translation system and carrying out research into cognitive sciences and semantics. Since its foundation the institute has always tried to adopt an interdisciplinary approach: linguistics, psychology and artificial intelligence in the belief that all help with understanding of language. Today the institute specialises in dealing with natural language and, in particular, in the multilingual handling of languages in a certain number of fields such as automated translation, linguistic environment, multilingual generation, speech processing and data collection. Since 1976, ISSCO has been completely attached to the School of Translation and Interpretation (ETI) at the University of Geneva.



The aim of the Dalle Molle Foundation for Quality of Life Contest is to promote innovative projects of general interest and of high scientific quality.
