A huge amount of information is stored or communicated in the form of natural language text. But it is difficult to make use of this information without asking people to read it all.
The technology we develop not only makes this information accessible, but makes it actionable, comprehensible, integrated, and predictive, as demonstrated in the fields of healthcare , litigation , customer care and finance . We teach computers to read, understand and act.
Our research spans from mathematical models that describe better sequences of characters or words (language modeling), vector-based representation of words , better and more generic methods of transforming text into knowledge . We work in many domains and many languages. Our research team has leading experts in natural language processing, computational linguistics, knowledge representation, machine learning and text mining.
