Meeting Description:

The School of Indian Languages, University of Kerala announces its first international seminar on “Indian Language Technology: State and Prospects” to be organized from March 18 - 21, 2014 in Thiruvananthapuram.

In this seminar the current status and future prospects relating to the Indian Language Technology initiatives with a special focus on the achievements and predicaments will be discussed. The interface of natural language and technology is a domain of vibrant activity; its R&D is highly innovative and is an emerging area of coordination between science and technology. This seminar facilitates formation of a comprehensive framework for addressing the multifarious issues, linguistic and technological, propping up in handling Indian languages. India, with its huge potential of linguistic diversity, offers new technological opportunities in the development and application of human language technologies. Technology based linguistic research for human welfare is having paramount importance in India. Grass root level dissemination of language technology should be our goal. Many regional languages are deprived of the benefits of information technology development. The benefits of information technology can reach to the common man only when software tools and human machine interface systems are freely available in people’s languages.
