James F. Allen, Author, Natural Language Understanding

Language is one of the fundamental aspects of human behavior and is a crucial component of our lives. How can natural language processing (NLP) improve our interactions with computer systems and help us to better understand each other? In the past decade, there has been significant progress in many application areas of NLP, but hard problems remain. What are the current benefits and limitations of NLP? How can you determine if your applications can benefit from NLP? Join James F. Allen, Ph.D., author of the seminal book Natural Language Understanding, as he explains the state of natural language processing today and how close we are to automatic natural language understanding, summarization, translation, and information retrieval. A particular focus will be spent on the use of natural language technologies in dialogue systems.
