So, yesterday I went to a really good talk given by Chung-chieh Shan from Harvard University Computer Science. He's a good guy and according to one professor gave one of the best Linguistics talks she'd ever seen.
Whoever fills this position for a Computational Semantics professor will probably end up being my advisor, so it's in my interest to see the candidates.
If you wanna see the project I'm currently working on, go here. I only work 10 hours a week, but it's fairly interesting work on automatically identifying and classifying proper nouns in text of various languages.
