Portrait of James Clarke

I build computational systems capable of extracting, processing and understanding information. My approaches are grounded in Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. Some of the problems I have worked on include: interpreting and understanding human language in the context of a world model; performing task-specific relation extraction and database population; and automatic summarization. I have extensive experience developing end-to-end novel Natural Language Processing systems and scalable pipelines.

I work on R&D projects at Basis Technology developing natural language processing technologies to advance our text analysis products.

In my spare time I’m busy working on side projects like Digestif: a simple way to create email digests from your Flickr or Instagram photographs.

I can be reached by , Skype and LinkedIn.

Previously I was a post-doctoral researcher in Dan Roth’s Cognitive Computation Group at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I earned my Ph.D. in Informatics under the supervision of Mirella Lapata at the University of Edinburgh.
