"The Power to Answer"

Language Computer Corporation (LCC) develops cutting-edge natural language processing software solutions for operational customers in the U.S. Defense and Intelligence Communities. 

I worked at LCC from 2004 - 2010. I started out leading research and in 2008, became CEO. I was so fortunate to work closely with Dr. Sanda Harabagiu, who was a real role model of mine in so many different ways.

During that time, I mainly ran a laboratory committed to the acquisition of high-quality knowledge from large amounts of textual information in any language. We invented systems for

  • unsupervised information extraction,
  • automatic question answering,
  • textual entailment, and
  • document summarization

that were judged as some of the world's best in evaluations like TREC, TAC, DUC, and PASCAL RTE.
