SLI Title

Professor, Department of Computer Science


My work is currently focused on statistical machine translation, but more broadly defined, my interest is to make use of the vast amount of information that is available in digital form. 

In general, statistical techniques allow automatic translation systems to be built quickly for any language-pair using only translated texts and generic software. With increasing globalization, statistical machine translation will be central to communication and commerce. Based on courses and tutorials, and classroom-tested globally, it is ideal for instruction or self-study, for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in computer science and/or computational linguistics, and researchers in natural language processing. The companion website provides open-source corpora and tool-kits.
