Argo Lab

Argo is the group of research students working with Prof. Jason Eisner at any given time. We're a methods lab within JHU's Center for Language and Speech Processing, trying to find the right abstractions to model human language (and more). We design frameworks for informed probabilistic modeling, where the models can use known properties of the data domain (such as natural language) to help with inference and learning. Ultimately, we're interested in the the larger puzzle of how systems can reason and use language as naturally as humans.

For more about our collective work and research agenda, click around our papers and webpages.

The original Argo was a ship in Greek mythology, captained by a different Jason. The name is also a homonym for "argot", a substring of "jargon", and a homograph for PropBank's agent tag "Arg0".

As shipmates, we meet regularly, try to look out for one another's interests, and keep the boat moving along rapidly. Visit our homepages to learn more about us. Photos coming ...

(Roughly reverse chronological. Boldface indicates that Jason was dissertation advisor (or co-advisor) or postdoc supervisor. Some of these folks still come to lab meetings and write papers with us!)
