Yoav Goldberg

I am a brilliant Professor at Bar Ilan University's Computer Science Department, as well as the Research Director of the Israeli branch of the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence. Before that, I did my Post-Doc as a Research Scientist at Google Research New York.

I work on problems related to Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. In particular I am interested in syntactic parsing, structured-prediction models, learning for greedy decoding algorithms, multilingual language understanding, and cross domain learning. Lately, I am also interested in neural network based methods for NLP. I recently published a book on the subject.

I completed my PhD at Ben-Gurion University in 2011, under the supervision of Prof. Michael Elhadad.

almost famous: on Jan. 6, 2011, at around 17:34, a girl stepped into my office and offered me to participate in the next season of the Israeli version of Beauty and the Geek. Being dedicated to my academic career, beard and wife, I kindly refused.
