I am a computational linguist, interested in text analysis from a variety of perspectives — experimental, theoretical, computational, applied. I am particularly interested in viewed text as a collaborative enterprise between the author and the reader, and what this entails in terms of author and reader strategies. I am currently working on political rhetoric from this perspective.

Bill Sterner
Lecturer, Dir. MacLab
Conceptual and Historical Studies of Science
U of Chicago

I’ve long been interested in crossover projects between computing and the humanities, and have taught a variety of courses related to themes of “computer programming as a liberal art.” I’m currently working on a monograph on Aristotle’s Poetics as a productive science that may someday have implications for thinking about artifactual design. Brenda Laurel’s Computers as Theater would be in a related domain space.

Roxana Girju
Assistant Professor
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
https://netfiles.uiuc.edu/girju/

I am interested in Computational Linguistics / Natural Language Processing. The focus on my research is on meaning and I attempt to understand the role of semantics and pragmatics in supporting intelligent inference and use this understanding to develop systems that learn and make intelligent inferences in complex domains.
The target areas of application have been Information Extraction and Retrieval, Question Answering, Text Data Mining, Machine Learning, and Machine Translation. More recently I added Language Evolution, Computer Vision, and Bioinformatics.

John Noecker Jr.
Undergraduate Student
Computer Science and Mathematics
Duquesne University

I am an undergraduate student at Duquesne University pursuing a double major in Computer Science and Mathematics. For the past year and a half I have been working with Dr. Juola on the Java Graphical Authorship Attribution Package (JGAAP), which I have recently begun to use for more interesting problems, such as the one I will be presenting at the colloquium.

My research interests include text classification, particularly authorship attribution, and machine learning techniques. I also studied classification techniques for speaker verification at the 2008 CLSP Workshop on Human Language Technologies at the Johns Hopkins University. I will graduate in May of 2009 with a B.S. in Computer Science and Mathematics, and hope to go on to study machine learning and text classification at the PhD level next fall.
