What is Language Technology?

marzo 28, 2008 at 12:59 pm Deja un comentario

Language technology or human language technology comprises computational methods, computer programs and electronic devices that are specialized for analyzing, producing or modifying texts and speech. These systems must be based on some knowledge of human language.

There are some software products that have some knowledge of human language. Such of these products are going to change our lives because they are urgently needed for improving human-machine interaction since the main obstacle in the interaction between human been and computer is a communication problem. Today’s computers do not understand our language so there are softwares which can listen and speak. These current advances in the recognition of spoken language permit computers help people communicate each other.

In spite of the fact that people have different mother tongues, computational linguistics are trying to create software systems which simplify the work of human translators.

The rapid growth of the Internet and the emergence of the information society poses exciting new challenges to language technology  because of the increasing multilinguality of the web.

The future of language technology will be determined by the growing need for user-friendly software.
