translates into English, Japanese, French, and Spanish, as shown in Figure 4.
Automatic interpretation will help us realize the dream of human global communication that bridges the language gap. It is also an important goal for voice technology. Through the development of automatic interpreting telephony, we will be able to obtain and develop the technologies necessary for maintaining a C&C society.
In concluding, I want to reemphasize the importance of collaboration. It is the collaboration of interdisciplinary research areas: (1) collaboration between speech, language, and other disciplines and (2) collaboration between those involved in science and technology. It must also be an international collaboration.
