Computer analysis of human language (text analytics) to help
authorship analysis, counterterrorism, criminal investigations,
evidence-based medicine, and humanities scholarship.
Shlomo Argamon is Professor of Computer Science, Director of the
Master of Data Science program, and head of
the Linguistic Cognition
Laboratory at the Illinois Institute of Technology. He also holds
courtesy appointments as a Fellow at the
Brain Sciences Foundation
in Providence, RI and as a Senior Fellow at
the Center for Advanced Defense
Studies in Washington, DC.
He received his B.Sc. (1988) in Applied Mathematics from
Carnegie-Mellon University, and his M.Phil. (1991) and Ph.D. (1994) in
Computer Science from Yale University, where he was a Hertz Foundation
Fellow. He was a Fulbright Postdoctoral Fellow (1994-96) at Bar-Ilan
University in Israel and later a faculty member at the Jerusalem College of
Technology, before joining Illinois Tech in 2002.
Prof. Argamon's current research is on the application of machine
learning to functional analysis of natural language, with applications
in national security, biomedical informatics, and humanities
scholarship. During his career, he has published numerous research
papers in empirical machine learning, intelligent robotics, theory
revision, and natural language processing. Prof. Argamon is the editor
Methods for Counterterrorism (2009, Springer)
Structure of Style: Algorithmic Approaches to Manner and
Meaning (2010, Springer) as well as cofounder of the Chicago
Colloquium on Digital Humanities and Computer Science.
Prof. Argamon is a Fellow of the British Computer Society.
