Yonatan Bisk – יונתן ביסק




CS Demographics

My research focuses on the areas of Natural Language Processing and Computational Linguistics. My primary interest is in training computers to understand human language via naturalistic sources of supervision. One way I approach this is by uncovering linguistic structure from raw text. More recently I have also been pursuing learning via grounded interaction.
