Who am I and why am I here?
I am a second year masters student under the MSIT-VLIS (Very Large-Scale Information Systems) program. I am and have been working on OAQA (Open Advancement of Question Answering) under Professor Eric Nyberg on and off for the past year. I am taking SPLODD to learn about structured prediction and adapting these techniques to perform build and adapt Information Extractors for QA in new domains.
Not so awesome super powers
I have been working with UIMA quite a bit under the OAQA project and may have some insights on using UIMA as the information processing architecture for various tasks.
