Large tech companies have developed English based products such as Alexa by Amazon and Siri by Apple geared by Natural Language Processing (NLP) Engines. However, digitally underserved languages like French based Creoles similar to Mauritian Creole are left out. The proof-of-concept of KreMoN (Kreol Morisien NLP) will be a language model
developed as a pathfinder to make way for the technologies which will enable the creation of chatbots, virtual assistants and sentiment analysers in Low Resourced Languages. These
will be achieved based on the development of two main NLP engines for Speech-to-text and Named Entity Recognition for the Mauritian Creole. Furthermore, the core engines will
serve in the advent of a local radio stream media monitoring system.
