Speaker:Chris Dyer Carnegie Mellon University, Language Technologies Institute
Chris Dyer is a Research Professor at the Language Technologogies Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. His research interests lie at or near the intersection of machine learning, natural language processing, and linguistics. A unifying theme of much of my work is multilinguality. Some current topics of interest are:Machine translation; neural network models for language processing; computational morphology and phonology; NLP on noisy text (Twitter, Sina Weibo, etc.); language modeling; feature induction and representation learning; unsupervised and semi-supervised learning; bayesian techniques; big data algorithms; and, probabilistic music models.
