Filip Ilievski

(Филип Илиевски / فيليب)

Since March 2015 I am a PhD student at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam under supervision of researchers from the Computational Lexicology and Terminology Lab (Prof Dr. Piek Vossen and Dr. Marieke van Erp) and from the Knowledge Representation & Reasoning group (Prof. Dr. Stefan Schlobach and Prof. Dr. Frank van Harmelen). I seek to understand how people use knowledge and reasoning to disambiguate language in context, and I apply these findings to teach computers to do the same. I am the main developer of LOTUS, the largest Linked Open Data text index available. I have been researching the representativeness of test sets used to evaluate language disambiguation, especially with respect to the Long Tail phenomena. During the period March-September 2017, I visited the Language Technologies Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, and I investigated a new cognitive task on profiling, under supervision of Professor Eduard Hovy.
