In this article I will point out some research topics that are mentioned on different sites of Human Language Technologies.
Firstly, members of The Stanford NLP Group pursue research in a broad variety of topics:
- Computational Semantics.
- Parsing & Tagging.
- Multilingual NLP.
- Unsupervised Induction of Linguistic Structure.
Secondly, in Edinburgh Language Technology Group of Scotland, UK we can mention some of their projects which conducts research and development in a number of areas.
- Combining Shallow Semantics and Domain Knowledge.
- Text Mining fot Biomedical Content Curation.
- Cross-retail Multi-agent Retail Comparison.
- Smart Qualitative Data: Methods and Community Tools for Data Mark-Up.
- Machine Learning for Named Entity Recognition.
- Named entity tagging of historical parliamentary proceedings.
- Integrated Models and Tolls for Fine-Grained Prosody in Discourse.
- Joint Action Science and Technology.
- AMI consortium projects that are developing technologies for meeting browsing and to assist people participating in meetings from a remote location.
- Study of how pairs collaborate when in planning a route on a map.
Finally, we can mention the German Language Technology Lab, which themes are elaborated in research, development and commercial projects:
- Exploiting – and automatically extending – ontologies for content processing.
- Tighter integration of shallow and deep techniques in processing.
- Enriching deep processing with statistical methods.
- Combining language checking with structuring tools in document authoring.
- Document indexing for German and English.
- Automatically associating recognized information with related information and thus building up collective knowledge.
- Automatically structuring and visualizing extracted information.
- Processing information encoded in multiple languages, among them Chinese and Japanese.
