How do you teach a computer to read an endangered language -- and a language that many people don't even know exists? While machine learning technology has enabled us to read and research texts online in many languages, there's one language that our computers and smartphones have yet to learn: Ladino, a heritage language of Sephardic Jews.
Student Abby Massarano explains why changing her name was an important step in connecting with her Sephardic heritage.
In this podcast, Devin Naar discusses the history of the Ladino language and preservation efforts taking place right here in Seattle.
When it comes to the Ladino Day controversy, David M. Bunis says we should consider the history of how Jews refer to their own languages.
