Research Keywords

Natural Language Processing, machine translation, visually grounded and textual semantic models

Research Interests

His research interests are in the semantics of natural language and in computational methods for semantic analysis, particularly in the areas of anaphora resolution and in dialogue. One of the main areas of research at the moment is the use of games to collect data to support computational linguistics (‘Games with a purpose’). His work on the organisation and acquisition of conceptual knowledge has involved using machine learning techniques to acquire evidence about common sense from corpora and brain data.
