In this presentation, we introduce the research area of Human Language Technologies (HLT), providing an introduction of the main tasks and applications, and focusing mainly on the research carried out in the GPLSI Research Group of the University of Alicante (Spain). The main aim is to provide the basics of this field, as well as focusing on the latest trends and challenging goals HLT applications have to face. Two of the HLT applications that will be explained in more detail will be Automatic Text Summarization and Text Simplification, in order to learn the most relevant issues about them and possible scenarios where they can be applied into real-life problems. Due to the exponential growth of available online information in natural language, both HLT applications play an important role these days: the former to determine the key ideas in the text and synthesize them, and the latter to facilitate the understanding of the information, and make it accessible to a wider number of users.
