We, the participants of the Gala Academy "The World Was Catching Me But Didn't Catch...", held on the occasion dedicated to the Birthday of Hryhoriy Skovoroda, on December 3, 2019, in the House of Scientists of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, appeal to you, senior leaders of the Ukraine, to emphasize the importance of humanitarian and spiritual directions of our national development at the modern, extremely turbulent stage of world civilization.

Issues of language and culture in the modern world are becoming increasingly important and significant. In addition to purely humanitarian factor, language becomes a technological factor too, which has a great impact on the development of digital network-centric civilization, becoming not only a culture factor, but also a factor of national security.

In Ukraine, due to efforts of leading scientists and specialists, a base of a national dictionary database have been created, which now has the status of a scientific object, which is the national property of Ukraine. The concept of the All-Ukrainian Linguistic Dialogue, designed to provide a conflict-free solution to language problems, has been formulated.

But it is necessary to take further steps towards a decisive raising of the level of intellectualization of information systems, progress in the field of creation of modern highly efficient tools and technologies for processing natural language information, integration into the world's linguistic and information space.

We are convinced that the future of Ukraine as an authoritative and respected highly-cultured country will be determined by the level of mastery of advanced technologies, first of all, linguistic ones.

We appeal to you, esteemed leaders of Ukraine, with the call:

  • May we be worthy of the memory of the great Ukrainian educator-philosopher Hryhoriy Skovoroda!
  • We ask you, the top leaders of Ukraine, to take decisive and effective measures in the field of development of highly intelligent linguistic technologies, which are the key to the modern civilizational evolution of Ukraine!
