abstract
In this talk, I introduce the studies related to assisting international communication through information technology. These studies involve the two areas of computer-assisted language learning and machine translation, based on the technologies of natural language processing, computer-human interaction, and machine learning. After briefly referring to communication theory as the background underlying this domain, I overview the state of the art by referring to some of my previous achievements.
