Summer Research Features: Machine Learning for Natural Language Processing

The Department of Computer Science is excited to feature our summer research groups and take a look at what they are working on! Today, we are highlighting the work of Dr. Michael Bloodgood’s research group.

Dr. Bloodgood’s group includes Michael Giordano (‘23) and Vihan Patel (‘22). The research team is investigating new methods for optimizing the usage of data for building machine learned NLP (Natural Language Processing) systems. The goal is to enable NLP systems to be trained and tested with lower cost and time, while maximizing performance. Applications of their research include text classification, information extraction, and machine translation.

The research team is using TCNJ’s ELSA (Electronic Laboratory for Science and Analysis) high performance computing cluster to conduct their experiments. This cluster is funded by the National Science Foundation under NSF Award #1828163. The research project is supported by TCNJ’s MUSE (Mentored Undergraduate Summer Experience) program.
