Minjoon Seo, UW CSE

Broadly, I do research in natural language processing (NLP). More specifically, I am interested in data-driven and unsupervised learning models for extracting (IE), accessing (QA) and combining (Reasoning) knowledge from natural language. I am advised by Hannaneh Hajishirzi and Ali Farhadi. I received BS in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science at UC Berkeley. Before coming to UW, I was a software engineer at Oracle.

Keywords: Natural Language Processing (NLP), Machine Learning
