Abstract : Advocate is a set of communications application programming interfaces and service wrappers that serve as a framework for creating complex and scalable real-time software applications from component processing algorithms. Advocate can be used for a variety of distributed processing applications, but was initially designed to use existing speech processing and machine translation components in the rapid construction of large-scale speech-to-speech translation systems. Many such speech-to-speech translation applications require real-time processing, and Advocate provides this speed with low-latency communication between services.
