Understanding of human language by computers has been a central goal of
Artificial Intelligence since its beginnings, with massive potential to
improve communication, provide better information access and automate basic
human tasks. My research focuses on technologies for automatic processing of
human language, with several applications including automatic translation
(akin to Google and
Bing's translation tools).
My core focus is on probabilistic machine learning modelling
of language applications, particularly handling uncertain
or partly observed data and structured prediction problems.
