Ph.D./M.S in Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University (2020) M.S./B.S. in Computer Science Engineering, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (2010)
Dongyeop Kang joined the Department of Computer Science & Engineering in 2021 as an assistant professor. He received his M.S. (2010) in computer science engineering from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology and his Ph.D. (2020) in computer science from Carnegie Mellon University. Prior to working at the University, Kang served as a research intern at Microsoft Research, the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence, and Facebook AI Research in 2016, 2017, and 2018, respectively. He also served as a postdoctoral scholar at the University of California, Berkeley, from 2020-21.
Kang’s research group is focused on building human-centric Natural Language Processing (NLP) systems by learning from human perception, interaction with humans, and disagreements among humans. They capture human perception through survey-based explanation or eye movements, and build cognitively-inspired NLP models. They develop interactive and collaborative human-AI systems and improve productivity/creativity of scientists and creative writers. They computationally model disagreement among human annotators/speakers with different backgrounds and develop more inclusive NLP systems to learn everyone's voices.
