Biographical details

James Curran is an Associate Professor and ARC Australian Research Fellow at the University of Sydney and the Research Leader in Language Technology at the Capital Markets Cooperative Research Centre. His research is in computational linguistics - the field of Artificial Intelligence involved in developing computer systems that understand natural languages, like English and Chinese. James has a PhD in Informatics from the University of Edinburgh.

James is also Director of the National Computer Science School and the NCSS Challenge, the largest computer science school outreach program in Australia, and is working with ACARA on the development of the Australian Curriculum: Digital Technologies. With Tara Murphy, he has won Faculty, University and national awards for university teaching excellence; and AIIA NSW and National iAwards, and an Engineering Australia (Sydney Division) Excellence award (Education and Training) for NCSS and the NCSS Challenge. In 2010, James was included as one of Sydney's 100 most influential people, as published in the Sydney Morning Herald's "The (sydney) Magazine".

Research interests

Associate Professor James Curran's research in computational linguistics, an area of artificial intelligence, focuses on building computer systems that can understand and communicate with us in our own natural languages.

"Almost all human knowledge is represented and/or stored in written and/or spoken language. In the past, it was difficult to get access to all this knowledge. Now, the problem is having access to too much knowledge (and junk) on the web - we're constantly searching for needles in haystacks.

"Computer systems that actually understand our natural language can therefore help to navigate, manipulate and summarise this knowledge for us. They can also revolutionise the way we interact with technology - using spoken language, the same way we interact with each other.

"My work focuses on web-scale robust statistical natural language processing (NLP), ranging from fundamental NLP components such as text processing, tagging tools and statistical parsers through to high-level NLP systems such as for financial modelling using text, question answering, information extraction and entity tracking.

"To accurately process language, NLP systems need to model the syntactic and semantic structures of language. They also need a commonsense understanding of the world, which is difficult to achieve on a large enough scale without using NLP itself to extract that knowledge. This 'chicken-and-egg problem' is called the 'knowledge bottleneck'. My work is helping to overcome this knowledge bottleneck, which hampers many applications of NLP.

"I am excited by the challenges of developing large-scale and robust deep-linguistic processing techniques that are feasible for tera-scale datasets. Accurate and efficient parsing will enable us to create and exploit unprecedented quantities of automatically analysed text, using semi-supervised knowledge acquisition."
