Gregory Adam Marton
Nicknamed "Gremio", I currently work at as a software engineer at Google in New York City, doing sentiment analysis. Some recent published work from my group:
- What's great and what's not: learning to classify the scope of negation for improved sentiment analysis
- The viability of web-derived polarity lexicons
I studied Natural Language Understanding in the Infolab group at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab, as a graduate student from Fall 2001 to Spring 2010. I will receive an Engineer in Computer Science degree in February 2011. And then I have a Ph.D. thesis to finish up some-time.
