Today’s language technology applications usually rely on either humandesigned rules (used sequentially by computers) or large amount of sequential data, that is, spoken or textual corpora. Today, computer modeling of human language abilities does not use parallel methods. In current natural language processing paradigms the notion of parallelism is almost totally missing. Multi-core processors are nowadays available even in commercial computers. On the other hand, results of brain research are quite far from existing language technology applications. Applying parallelism would lead us to a more realistic architecture for language understanding, with an increased processing speed.
The European Future Technologies Conference and Exhibition 2011 is the second instalment of a new forum dedicated to frontier research in information and communication technologies. fet11 is a unique conference on visionary, high-risk and long-term research in information science and technology. Featuring an exceptionally broad range of scientific fields the event will seed new ideas across disciplines that will reshape the future.
