Academic Paper

Title: Industry Watch: Language technology, meet social networking
Author: Robert Dale
Institution: Macquarie University
Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics; Computational Linguistics
Abstract: Here's a round-up of notable events in the commercial language technology space in the last quarter of 2007, organized by broad application category. A common thread that pops up throughout many of these is the integration of language technology into social networking applications and other related Web 2.0 themes. I'd put my money on this being a hot direction in 2008.
