The selected scientist engages in research to create supervised andsemi-supervised machine learning information extraction systems to extractinformation from unstructured documents and data and to incorporate suchsystems into a Semantex engine. They will design and implement machinelearning algorithms, such as maximum entropy, hidden Markov Models, kernelmethods and semi-supervised learning algorithms. They will need to make useof knowledge of statistical methods and syntactic and semantic theories.Furthermore, they will create and implement a statistical semantic rolelabeling software system, using generalized constituent grammar features.They will provides effective solutions to named entity recognition andparticularly organization name recognition. This position requires Master'sdegree in Computer Science and successful completion of coursework inNatural Language Processing and Machine Learning. EEO.
