We started using Xerox Incremental Parser (XIP) developed by Xerox Research Centre Europe (XRCE) in 2001 for research activities on Japanese text processing by M. Tateno in FX-PAL Japan (Fuji Xerox.) The activity has been accelerated through collaboration with Professor Fukaya and his laboratory at Keio University Shonan Fujisawa Campus (SFC) on Text Meaning Space Analysis (TMSA) from 2003.

We show that research on human language is totally different from any other research areas. Then, we look at current research on human language using computers (natural language processing) from the viewpoint of natural language understanding and machine translation. The results from natural language processing done just by a computer are unsatisfactory to accomplish the goals.

We emphasizes that knowing the meanings of a large amount of text data is very important for companies or governments because there are far more opportunities to make better decision if they know what or how people think on a particular subject. TMSA asserts that humans construct the meaning, while computer analyzes the text to support humans. TextImi developed under the concept of TMSA has finally been introduced.
