Research in the area of language resources and technologies for "low-resourced" languages had a huge boost in recent years, becoming one of the leading sectors. In my presentation I will illustrate some aspects of this sector, from the field of interest (what and which are "low-resourced" languages?) to the main challenges and problems that currently concern them, to conclude with a rundown of some of the most important initiatives of the last decade.
