The development, and therefore, the improvement that Human Language Technologies continualy undergoes since its origins requires a non-ceasing research and investigation activity in order to keep up with the needs and demands of the user of these technolgies. Language technology centres and laboratories invest in research in order to offer better services. Here are some of the current research projects mentioned in some of some of the main sites on human language technologies:

The Pattern Recognition and Human Language Technology (PRHLT) research group:

Machine Translation.

Automatic Speech Recognition and Understaning.

Image Analysis and Computer Vision.

COLLATE (Computational linguistics and Language Technology for real life applications):

Multi-level annotation of large corpora.

Natural language interaction with electronic information services.

The extraction of information from large volumes of digital texts.

The management of large information repositories by improved retrieval and summarization functions          

Human Language Technology Research Institute:

Innovations in language analysis.

Innovations in question processing.

New forms of editing using semantic information.

Extractions and iference of answers based on events inter-relationships and context sensitive inference over multiple sentences and discourse fragments.
