ESP Biography



KARTHIK RAGHUNATHAN, Stanford Computer Science Masters Student in AI




Major: Computer Science

College/Employer: Microsoft

Year of Graduation: 2010

Picture of Karthik Raghunathan

Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am a Software Development Engineer working at Microsoft Corporation. I graduated from Stanford in 2010 with an MS in Computer Science with Distinction in Research. I specialize in the field of artificial intelligence, and am particularly interested in a sub-field called "Natural Language Processing". I have worked with Professors Chris Manning and Dan Jurafsky in the Stanford NLP Group.

Prior to joining Stanford, I got my Bachelors (B.Tech) in Computer Science and Engineering from the National Institute of Technology, Calicut in India. I have always been interested in computers from a very young age, but my focus has shifted from just interacting with the computer for fun to making the computer an easy-to-use tool for helping human beings in their everyday lives. I strongly believe that Natural Language Processing, and Artificial Intelligence in general hold a lot of promise in achieving this goal. I have previously given seminars on "Spoken Dialog Systems" and "Machine Translation" during my undergraduate days and I am always looking forward to opportunities which allow me to share my excitement about NLP and its applications with others.
