How are you currently working with NLP?

I provide oversight of NLP teams composed of academic/industry collaborators each producing software suits designed to automatically identify and interpret linguistic metaphor in unstructured, natural language texts in English and other languages. The teams are using a mix of techniques and algorithms such as WordNet selectional restrictions, LDA topic models, dependency parsers, machine learning, and corpus statistics.

What NLP-related topics would you be interested in learning more about?

Machine learning, human rater annotation, emotion analysis (as distinct from sentiment analysis)

Would you be willing to give a short presentation about your work or research projects at a future meeting? If so, please tell us a little about it.

Maybe (would require permission from my Program Manager)


I work in NLP research and development. I am an academically trained linguist with NLP experience.I am an NLP Analyst with IBM's Watson Deep Question Answering platform.
