QCRI is an advanced research center focused on modern ICT areas: it has the potential to become a top ranked center for such technologies.
The aim of Dr. Moschitti's work is to carry out advanced research on Machine Learning methods for syntactic and semantic processing of natural language. The associated applications regard the design of state-of-the-art Information Search and Retrieval systems based on advanced language models and structural semantic representations: a typical example is given by automatic Question Answering systems.
Dr. Moschitti has been the only European Faculty member to participate with IBM Watson research center of NY in the Jeopardy! Grand Challenge. He has significant expertise in both theoretical and applied Machine Learning for NLP, IR and Data Mining. He has devised innovative kernels for advanced syntactic/semantic processing with support vector and other kernel-based machines. He is an author or co-author of about 170 scientific articles published in major conferences, e.g., ACL, SIGIR, ICDM, ICML, CIKM, ECML, EMNLP, IJCAI, etc., and journals, e.g., Comp. Ling., IPM, DMKD, IS-IEEE, TASL-IEEE, etc. He has been granted and led several EU projects among which: LiMoSINe (STREP IST 288024) – partner PI, ETERNALS (CA, IST 247758) – Consortium PI, and LIVINGKNOWLEDGE (FET – IP IST 231126) – WP leader.
