Natural language understanding systems require a knowledge base provided with formal representations reflecting the structure of human beings' cognitive system. This conference deals with meaning and knowledge representation in the context of natural language understanding from the perspective of theoretical linguistics, computational linguistics, cognitive science, knowledge engineering, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, text analytics or linked data and semantic web technologies.

 

 

Following the success of previous conferences, the 7th International Conference on Meaning and Knowledge Representation took place in ITB in early July. ITB was delighted to welcome over 60 delegates from all over the world to our campus.

ITB academic staff and students from our Master of Science in Computing (Multimodal Human Language Technology) presented at the conference.

 

 

Human Language Technology (HLT) refers to a rapidly evolving interdisciplinary field concerned with one of our most pervasive commodities: human language both spoken and written) and its interaction with computers. In the past decade it has become an increasingly central component in the field of computer science, as it has become increasingly prevalent in our lives.

Human Language Technology is concerned with human language, as it appears in emails, web pages, tweets, product descriptions, newspaper stories, social media, and scientific articles, in thousands of languages worldwide. Successful human language technology applications have become part of our everyday experience.

 

 

The Human Language technology professional will have expertise in the domain areas of computer science, computer engineering and linguistics and combining expertise in these domain area provides us with a myriad of new and exciting innovations from conversational agents/avatars and automatic speech recognition on user devices to Internet search and machine translation of the world's languages.
