David Chiang 蔣偉

Associate Professor, Computer Science and Engineering
Natural Language Processing Group

My research is in natural language processing, the subfield of computer science that aims to enable computers to understand and produce human language. I focus mainly on language translation, and am interested in syntactic parsing and other areas as well.
