Although there has been much progress in developing theories, models and systems in the areas of natural language processing (NLP) and vision processing (VP), there has hitherto been little progress in integrating these two subareas of artificial intelligence. The papers inIntegration of Natural Language and Vision Processingfocus on site descriptions, such as the work at Apple Computer, California, and the DFKI, Saarbrücken, on historical surveys and philosophical issues, on systems that have been built, enabling communication through text, speech, sound, touch, video, graphics and icons, and on the automatic presentation of information, whether it be in the form of instruction manuals, statistical data or visualisation of language. There is also a review of Mark Maybury's bookIntelligent MultimediaInterfaces.
Audience:Vital reading for all interested in the SuperInformationHighways of the future.
