We welcome today Somaye Moslemnejad who joins us as a new PhD student to work on algorithms for argument mining. Somaye comes to us from Mashad in Iran where she worked on machine learning applications and uncertainty, and she’ll be building on our work in deep learning and neurosymbolic argument mining.
We are going to be working on the argumentation dynamics in Earnings Conference Calls, a rich source of subtle and high-impact argument in the financial domain. With a particular focus on the ways that questions generate argumentative structures, the research builds on recent work that has established methodology, coupled with recent results in argument mining. It’s going to be fun!
