NEWS: Our paper “The Rating Game: Sentiment Rating Reproducibility from Text”, written with two of our students, was accepted at EMNLP! We question how reproducible ratings are from text, for both humans and statistical models (spoiler: not very).


“You are all individuals!”
“Yes! We are all individuals!”
“You are all different!”
“Yes, we are all different!”
“I’m not!”
“Shhh!”

Hi, glad you found this site! I work in Natural Language Processing (NLP), a subfield of artificial intelligence. My work lies at the intersection of NLP and Machine Learning. I am interested in enhancing our understanding of language with respect to lexical semantics (modeling what words mean in context), non-standard language, and co-text (the influence of extra-linguistic factors on language use). I am currently a postdoc at CST at the University of Copenhagen.
I received my PhD from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, where I was working as research assistant at the Information Sciences Institute. My thesis topic was how to learn semantic types and relations from plain text.
You will find here

If you have questions or comments, feel free to send me a mail.
Cheers,

Dirk
