Survey of the State of the Art in Human Language Technology

£24.99

Product description

Very good condition with little to no wear. Minor creasing to bottom of spine. Internally clean and bright.

Originally published in 1997, this book is concerned with human language technology. This technology provides computers with the capability to handle spoken and written language. One major goal is to improve communication between humans and machines. If people can use their own language to access information, working with software applications and controlling machinery, the greatest obstacle for the acceptance of new information technology is overcome. Another important gaold is to facilitate communication among people. Machines can help to translate texts or spoken input from one human language to the other. Programs that assist people in writing by checking orthography, grammar, and style are constantly improving. In the emerging information society people will be provided with more information than they can possibly handle. Language technology is needed for retrieving and summarizing texts, for filtering and routing messages, and for searching and navigating through the mulitlingual World Wide Web.
