Hi! This is a really boring website, but people often ask me for a bio and photo so here it is!
Yonatan Bisk is an assistant professor of computer science in Carnegie Mellon's Language Technologies Institute. His group works on grounded and embodied natural language processing, placing perception and interaction as central to how language is learned and understood. This was a windy path, having received his PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign working on unsupervised Bayesian models of syntax he subsequently spent several years as a postdoc and/or visitor at USC's ISI (grounding), the University of Washington (commonsense), and Microsoft Research (vision+language).
