About Mark Dredze
Mark Dredze, the John C. Malone Professor in the Department of Computer Science, is a pioneer in developing artificial intelligence methods for language data. He utilizes natural language processing methods to extract, organize, and analyze information from text data. He is one of the founders of the field of web-based digital public health that applies these methods to mining social media and online text to derive new insights into human health behaviors, to inform public health policy, and to guide interventions. Furthermore, he develops new clinical NLP methods for secondary use of medical data.
