I am a Senior Research Manager at the newly formed Allen Institute for AI, a new AI research center created by Paul Allen in Seattle. I am leading Project Aristo, a new initiative in large-scale extraction of knowledge from text (machine reading) and its application to answering science questions. My primary areas of research are natural language understanding, large knowledge bases, machine inference, and commonsense reasoning.
- I can sometimes be found camping, spending lots of time talking with friends, doing judo (though not for a while now...), and herding my three wonderful kids. Here are a few photos from 2005,
