In this new semester I am going to write about the human languages technologies.This is the information that I have found about the definitions of human language technologies:

The overall objective of HLT is to support e-business in a global context and to promote a human centred infostructure ensuring equal access and usage opportunities for all.This is to be achieved by developing multilingual technologies and demonstrating exemplary applications providing features and functions that are critical for the realisation of a truly user friendly Information Society. Projects address generic and applied RTD from a multi- and cross-lingual perspective, and undertake to demonstrate how language specific solutions can be transferred to and adapted for other languages.IST Web.

2) Human Language Technologies (HLT) is a new term that embraces a wide range of areas of research and development in the sphere of what used to be called Language Technologies or Language Engineering. The aim of this module is to familiarise the student with selected key areas of HLT. ICT4LT Module 3.5

3) Human Language Technology (HLT) involves the analysis, mining and production of natural language. HLT has matured over the last decade to a point at which robust and scaleable applications are possible in a variety of areas. eswc2005

4)Human Language Technology is a relatively new discipline that investigates two main issues. On the one hand it explores the theoretical and practical issues surrounding the ability to get technology, especially modern information communications technology (ICT), to interact with humans using natural language capabilities. On the other hand, it is a discipline that investigates how technologies, especially ICTs, can serve as useful adjuncts to humans in language understanding, including analysis, processing, storage and retrieval. This investigation could lead to practical applications, including the design of online learning environments for language learning and multilingual retrieval for automatic translation. BA
