Applications include machine translation, information extraction, human translation and text to speech. For example, one common task across every written language is the identification of boundaries that demarcate clauses in sentences. For TTS, this helps the insertion of a gap in the audio output, lending a more natural feel. One paper by Ram and Devi point out that the automated identification of clause boundaries is non-trivial.
Actually, most if not all of the book's papers are on non-trivial problems. Presumably all the easy problems have already been solved.
Another topic in the book is the use of conceptual hierarchies in semantic representations. While another problem is the extracting of deep level semantics from unstructured text documents, as described by Peraldi et al. This was linked to the effort of mapping from effects to causes, which is intriguingly termed abduction.
