The Javanese language, spoken by a population of over 98 million people, faces notable challenges in digital and technological applications, especially when compared to globally recognized languages. This disparity is highlighted in several studies that discuss the lack of deep learning research benefits due to data scarcity for Javanese. Additionally, other studies have pointed out the inaccessibility of data resources and benchmarks for Javanese, contrasting with languages like English and Mandarin Chinese.

Description:

Acute patient length of stay is the leading contributor to hospital costs in Australia. The Victorian Auditor General has reported that ≈145,000 extra bed-days could be made available if all hospitals managed length of stay more efficiently. Such optimisation of length of stay could translate into $125 million in annual savings for Victorian taxpayers.
