Some possible kannada problems on the internet

1. Linguistic search for keywords
1.1 Subproblem - identifying proper nouns
1.2 Subproblem - transliteration ambiguity
2. Font rendering technology - improvement and standardization
2.1 Encoding standardization

What already exists -
- Searching kannada documents for english terms (by transliteration) -> Google (http://www.google.com/search?hl=kn)
- Searching kannada documents for kannada terms (in Unicode) -> Google, Wikipedia (kn.wikipedia.org)

  1. Hi,
    It is good that you are concerned with the Kannada language. I have an acquaintance with Mr. Cohan Sujoy Carlos, who owns a company called Aiaioo, that works on NLP. He has developed an open-source product called Vaklipi, which can be used for programming in Indian languages (including Kannada) in natural language. Please have a look: http://www.aiaioo.com/cms/index.php?s=vaklipi
