Research Interests

  • Machine learning for natural language processing,
  • with applications to statistical parsing, clustering, summarization, machine translation, question answering, information retrieval.


  • DFG funds new research on machine translation from non-parallel data

    • Artem Sokolov and Stefan Riezler will start a novel attempt at learning machine translations from data that are not strictly parallel, but only weakly supervised by relevance indicators such as citations in patents or hyperlinks in Wikipedia pages. The research will be conducted in the DFG funded research project "Weakly Supervised Learning of Cross-Lingual Systems".
  • New DFG funded project on "Grounding Statistical Machine Translation in Perception and Action"

  • New publications
