I’m a chief scientist at the MITRE Corporation, a not-for-profit R&D center, where I study applications of artificial intelligence, deep learning, and natural language processing to solve problems in the public interest. I live in Denver, CO.
I also serve as the Director of the Institute of Neuromorphic Engineering and help organize the affiliated Telluride Neuromorphic Cognition Engineering Workshop.
Our group is hiring! If you’re interested in a research career working towards the advancement of machine intelligence for the benefit of humanity, please reach out.
Some aspects of our work in recent years include:
- online adaptation of neural networks using attention and external memory
- transfer learning from monolingual data to improve neural machine translation
- detection of astroturf, information campaigns, and influential stories on Twitter
- ultra low power intelligent sensors and neural networks on mobile devices
- generalized language understanding tools in all the worlds’ languages
