Working Group: Human-Machine Interaction

List of members of the human-machine interaction working group

Dr. Amy Bastian

Professor, Department of Neuroscience; Director, Motion Analysis Laboratory
Kennedy Krieger Institute, School of Medicine

I am interested in motor learning in adults and children who have damage or disease of the central nervous system.

Dr. Jason Eisner

Professor, Department of Computer Science
Whiting School of Engineering

I am interested in natural language processing and how we can appropriately formalize linguistic structure and discover it automatically.

Dr. Michela Gallagher

Krieger-Eisenhower Professor, Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences
Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, School of Medicine

I am interested in the neural systems that serve a role in learning, memory and attention.

Dr. Donald Geman

Professor, Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics, Center for Imaging Science
Whiting School of Engineering

I am interested in computational vision, bioinformatics, and statistical learning.

Dr. Gregory Hager

Professor and Chair, Department of Computer Science
Whiting School of Engineering

I am interested in computer vision and robotics in an effort to discover the underlying structures in surgical motion.

Dr. Justin Halberda

Associate Professor, Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences
Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

I am interested in language acquisition and the possibility that logical deductive inference my play a role in the learning of new words. I also study the organization of attention, working memory, and the connection of mind to world.

Dr. Sanjeev Khudanpur

Associate Professor, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Whiting School of Engineering

I am interested in the application of information theoretic methods to human language technologies such as automatic speech recognition, machine translation and natural language processing.

Dr. Michael Miller

Herschel & Ruth Seder Professor, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering; Director, Center for Imaging Science
Whiting School of Engineering

I am interested in computer vision and image understanding.

Dr. Jaqueline Nunn

Associate Dean, Technology Columbia Center, School of Education
School of Education

I am interested in developing, researching, and disseminating evidence-based research practices that transform instruction to ensure that all students, especially those with disabilities, are afforded the best possible educational opportunities.

Dr. Paul Smolensky

Krieger-Eisenhower Professor of Cognitive Science
Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

My research attempts to identify the proper roles within a unified theory of cognition for symbolic computation, numerical neural computation, and statistical computation.
