As the director of the Language and Technology Lab at the University of Iceland, I work with a great team of people. Our group works at the intersection of Language and Technology, focusing on automated assistance for language use (such as proofreading), corpora (especially treebanks) and parsing, Language Technology infrastructure, and the interfaces between language, society, and technology. We emphasize work that is related to the Icelandic language but the methods we use are in general language-independent.
The following people work at the lab:

English: Language and Technology = Icelandic: Mál og tækni
The name of the lab refers to both Language and Technology for a reason. We use our knowledge of linguistics to implement Language Technology solutions and we also use our knowledge of technology to implement novel types of research methods in linguistics. Some of our projects involve creating research infrastructure that makes it possible to do complex quantitative studies in much more efficient ways than earlier methods would have allowed.
