Young-Bum Kim is a Senior Scientist at Microsoft since 2014. He received Ph.D. in the Department of Computer Sciences from University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2015. During his Ph.D., he worked on the development of multilingual Natural Language Processing techniques and systems with Professor Benjamin Snyder.

His research aims to tackle longstanding problems in NLP, including morphological induction, part-of-speech tagging, semantic role labeling, grapheme-to-phoneme prediction, and computational decipherment of lost languages, in a novel framework: cross-lingual supervision, where a single unlabeled language serves as test data, and a large set of labeled languages serve as training data. The key idea is that by jointly modeling a broad array of languages, apparent ambiguities can be resolved by building generic and universally plausible models of human language.

Spoken Language Understanding

Established: May 1, 2013

Spoken language understanding (SLU) is an emerging field in between the areas of speech processing and natural language processing. The term spoken language understanding has largely been coined for targeted understanding of human speech directed at machines. This project covers…

Understand User’s Intent from Speech and Text

Established: December 17, 2008

Understanding what users like to do/need to get is critical in human computer interaction. When natural user interface like speech or natural language is used in human-computer interaction, such as in a spoken dialogue system or with an internet search…
