Ellen Riloff Associate Professor www.cs.utah.edu/~riloff firstname.lastname@example.org
Professor Riloff’s primary research area is natural language processing (NLP), although she also has interests in information retrieval, machine learning, and artificial intelligence in general. Recent research projects have tackled the problems of information extraction, semantic tagging and lexicon induction, coreference resolution, and subjectivity analysis. A major emphasis of Prof. Riloff’s research involves automatically acquiring the knowledge needed for conceptual natural language processing, and the development of bootstrapping methods that can learn from unannotated text with minimal human supervision.
