My long-term goal is to make computers understand English in a similar functional capactity as people. This research treads many academic topics: machine reading and story understanding, event structures and lexical semantics, semantic role labeling, statistical relational learning, sequence mining, event recognition and extraction, planning, plan recognition, metacognition and self-modeling.
I'm fortunate to work with people who share boundless enthusiasm and dedication toward their work. In particular, these collaborators and colleagues have had a profound impact on my thinking: Ken Arnold, Walter Bender, Ian Eslick, Errin Fulp, Catherine Havasi, Mako Hill, Jayant Krishnamurthy, Henry Lieberman, Hugo Liu, Sean Markan, Marvin Minsky, Bo Morgan, Push Singh, Rob Speer, Scotty Vercoe.
