UW Science Now: Katie Kuksenok: Helping Computers Find Meaning
Language translation has challenged computers for years; Katie Kuksenok explores how computers can ask people for help to do it better, in a companion talk to Brian Christian's talk immediately preceding. Even as advances in language-processing technologies enable us to effectively navigate the growing sea of online information, computers continue to struggle with accurate automatic translation as more people from around the world contribute online content in different languages. Kuksenok is a Ph.D. student in Computer Science and Engineering at the UW who is building novel systems to improve the quality and the user experienceof language-processing technologies. Presented by Engage: The Science Speaker Series as part of Seattle Science Lectures, with the University of Washington, Pacific Science Center and University Book Store. Series sponsored by Microsoft. Series media sponsorship provided by KPLU.
