Yoav Artzi, assistant professor of computer science at Cornell Tech and Cornell University, is the recipient of the National Science Foundation’s Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award. This five-year, $550,000 grant will support his continued research on the intersection of natural language processing and machine learning. The goal of this research program is to create a new framework for mapping natural language instructions to actions of autonomous systems operating in complex environments such as self-driving cars and drones, leading to new opportunities for non-expert users to control complex systems and increase the accessibility of current systems.
