The IAI was established in 1985 to carry out research in Language Technology 
and other areas of information sciences. Within several other public and 
industry funded projects, linguistic resources like dictionaries, terminologies 
and grammars have been expanded considerably. On this basis, the linguists, 
translators and computer scientists of IAI (23 in 2004) started to develop 
prototypical software tools for document processing which attain higher 
performances than the currently available commercial tools. 

Examples are:
- Duden KORREKTOR, the new German spelling and grammar checker
- MULTILINT and CLAT, specific spelling, terminology, grammar and syntax 
checkers for technical documentation
- AUTOTERM for automatic mono- and bilingual term extraction
- AUTINDEX for automatic indexing and abstracting

Services performed for editor houses led to well known products where IAI 

- Brockhaus Multimedial (Knowledge Network for Encyclopedies)
- SESB (Stuttgart Electronic Study Bible)

Research is being continued in
- multilingual full text retrieval
- information translation (EBMT)
