The long-term goal of the Ātea Project — which is part of New Zealand’s National Science Challenges — is to help build prosperous, culturally thriving and technology-driven Māori economies for future generations. To achieve this, a key element in the project is the development of a suite of digital tools centred around Māori identity that provide capabilities such as a speech-to-text recognition for Te Reo (the Māori language) and authentic cultural experiences through Virtual and Augmented Reality techniques. To this end we need to be able to store, access and analyse culturally sensitive content, and the approaches we are developing to achieve this is the focus of the seminar.
