Research Summary

Dr. Martin's research is focused on the theoretical and practical issues involved in getting computers to perform useful and interesting tasks involving human languages. The primary thrust of his work involves computational semantics -- the study of how computers can grasp and represent the meanings associated with utterances and texts. The practical efforts of his work involve the application of human language technology to problems in automatic translation, electronic medical records, educational applications, and the analysis of social media in crisis situations.
