Human language technologies—from document search, to machine translation and question answering—have become an increasingly important part of our daily lives. The quality of such technologies for the English language continues to surpass the quality of comparable technologies for Arabic. This talk discusses the challenges of developing language technologies for Standard Arabic and its various dialects. The talk also presents current state-of-the-art in the field of Arabic language technologies and explores its potential, as well as implications, for Arabic in the 21st century.
