Yoav Artzi is an Assistant Professor at Cornell Tech and in the Computer Science Department at Cornell University. Professor Artzi’s Language in Context group studies representations and learning algorithms for language understanding in context. Language understanding is a complex challenge that requires reasoning about linguistic meaning and its use in context, for example to resolve references to objects in the environment when instructing a robotic systems. The main focus of the group is developing methods for computer systems to learn to understand natural language through interaction with users and experimenting in the world. The goal is to create natural language systems that continuously learn, improve their language understanding, and acquire new language uses.
