EJIE breaks linguistic barriers with AI and Red Hat: 2024 Innovation Award Winner

When EJIE set out to build an AI translator for the Basque region, they faced a major obstacle: the lack of necessary infrastructure for AI development. But with Red Hat’s support, EJIE was able to harness the power of GPUs to develop an AI-powered neural translator. Today, over 30,000 users rely on the app daily, enjoying the fundamental right to effortless communication. About Red Hat Innovation Awards 2024: Through the Red Hat® Innovation Awards program, Red Hat recognizes customers who have come up with exciting new ideas. This year, we honor four winners who took those big ideas and turned them into bold projects and outstanding technological achievements. Their stories show what's possible when teams work together using an open source approach.
