Description

Evelyne Viegas is the director of Semantic Computing at Microsoft Research Redmond. Semantic Computing is about interacting with data in rich, safe, semantically meaningful ways to create the path from data to information, knowledge, and intelligence. In her current role, she is building initiatives that focus on information seen as an enabler of innovation, working in partnership with universities and government agencies worldwide. In particular, she is creating programs around computational-intelligence research to drive open innovation and agile experimentation via cloud-based services, and projects to advance the state of the art in data-driven research, knowledge representation and reasoning under uncertainty at web scale. Before her present role, Viegas worked as a technical lead at Microsoft, delivering natural language processing components to projects for MSN, Office, and Windows. Before Microsoft, and after completing her Ph.D. in France, she worked as a principal investigator at the Computing Research Laboratory in New Mexico on an ontology-based machine-translation project. She serves on international editorial, program, and award committees.
