I am a principal investigator at the MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab, focusing on developing capabilities towards fully automated video comprehension and machine common sense.
Before I moved to the Cambridge Research Lab I worked at the Haifa Research Lab where I held several managerial and technical leadership positions. In my last role I was the manager in charge of IBM Debating Technologies.
In 2005 I received a PhD in computer science from the Hebrew Univerity in Jerusalem, Israel. Following that I was a postdoctoral fellow and a lecturer at Harvard University and MIT. My research interests are in computational complexity, foundations of cryptography and machine learning with applications to natural language processing and computer vision.
