Language, Literacy, and Technology

By Richard Kern

"In this book, Richard Kern explores how technology matters to language and the ways in which we use it. Kern reveals how material, social and individual resources interact in the design of textual meaning, and how that interaction plays out across contexts of communication, different situations of technological mediation, and different moments in time."

Abstract: We studied Chinese concept-based information retrieval technology in Web. The research is sponsored by China national 863 project. The key idea is to use a concept network to guide user's search and browse. Both corpus-based statistical NLP technology and rule-based linguistics method is used to analyse the webpages from a website. Important concepts are identified, and the relationship between these concepts is calculated to form a concept network which is used for intelligent query expansion. The approach is data-driven so it is domain independent. The intelligent Chinese search engine based on this technology is successful, now the search engine are used by serval Websites, including the official website of Beijing government. The next step of our research is to develop intelligent search engine for E-commerce.
