Finding Function in Form:  Open Vocabulary Natural Language Processing

Chris Dyer is a Research Professor at the Language Technologogies Institute at Carnegie Mellon University.  His research interests lie at or near the intersection of machine learning, natural language processing, and linguistics.  A unifying theme of much of my work is multilinguality.  Some current topics of interest are:Machine translation; neural network models for language processing; computational morphology and phonology; NLP on noisy text (Twitter, Sina Weibo, etc.); language modeling; feature induction and representation learning; unsupervised and semi-supervised learning; bayesian techniques; big data algorithms; and, probabilistic music models.
