The computer industry has long realized that computers cannot reach their full potential if only a select group of people can successfully interact with them. Natural languages is a comparable solution to the problem of allowing more people access to the information they need to be effective. Natural Language Processing translates keyed-in “English-like” statements to computer commands necessary to execute a given task. Years of artificial intelligence research has produced some natural language products capable of solving some of today’s commercial application problems. These commercial applications are minimal, however, this is a cutting edge technology and research is thriving. Some of the commercially available products have been able to make significant strides in the battle to help end users and managers to make strategic decisions previously taking more time and resources than were available.
