Specialty Areas: Computational Linguistics; Morphology; Semantics; NLP; Dialog Processing
Nuance (http://www.nuance.com) is the world-wide leader in voice technologies.
We are now making substantial research and development investments to add
natural language processing capabilities to our speech infrastructure. In
particular, Nuance has recently created a research lab in its Silicon Valley
office under the direction of Ron Kaplan. The goal of the team is to develop
the next generation of intelligent, conversational agents. The NLP sub-group
of this team is led by Joel Tetreault. We seek NLP research scientists with
the following backgrounds:
- Dialog processing
- Discourse and anaphora resolution
- Multimodal generation
- Entity recognition
- Multilingual NLP
- Semantic interpretation
- Ownership of a major component of the conversational system.
- Conduct research on the dialog, generation, or reasoning components, and
incorporate the latest advances from major conferences in the field.
- Adapt existing components within Nuance and from previous research in the
field to a new problem space and domain.
- Understand the trade-offs between multiple competing approaches, and choose
the ones that are likely to have future impact on the company's products.
- Design components in a way that will generalize across domains. Minimize
the code change and human effort needed for the system to work in a new
- Collaborate with other scientists and engineers inside and outside of the
- Patent or publish experimental results or designs when appropriate.
Education / Experience
- Ph.D. in computer science, computational linguistics, or another technical
field with a focus on natural language processing.
- Solid track record in both projects and publications for natural language
- Solid implementation skills in C++, Java, scripting languages.
- Knowledge of both statistical and rule-based methods for natural language
