Simplifying a complex art

At the three-day-long AAACL Symposium in Montclair, NJ, I enjoyed a very nicely done presentation titled "Where have we been and where are we going" in Natural Language Processing (including speech, corpus linguistics, machine translation) from Ken Church (now a Senior Researcher at Microsoft).

While reading the article linked in the title, I agree: there are so many concepts and ideas in our field too that need to be translated to everyday language. Ken, by the way, even though he was speaking to a group of experts in the field, kept it very simple and informative.
