Jesse Thomason

Postdotoral Researcher - University of Washington

My research interests are primarily in semantic understanding and language grounding, such as in human-robot dialogs. My PhD focused on the intersection of natural language processing and robotics. I worked on algorithms that bootstrap robot understanding from interaction with humans, improving language understanding and perceptual grounding for embodied robots.
