Interests & Expertise

Dr. Kate’s research interests are in natural language processing, biomedical informatics and machine learning. He is interested in applying machine learning techniques to medical applications as well as in developing techniques that would enable computers to robustly understand and process natural languages, especially for biomedical applications. Kate’s research focus is on improving techniques for extracting computer-processable knowledge from natural language texts and on developing techniques for enabling natural language interaction with computers. He has worked on semantic parsing, various forms of supervisions for semantic parser learners, information extraction and kernel-based machine learning methods for natural language processing.
