Bhargav Srinivasa Desikan

Research Fellow, University of Chicago

Bhargav is a Research Fellow at the Knowledge Lab, currently working with Prof. Evans on a book titled "Thinking with Deep Learning", where they are trying to work towards a sophisticated deep learning powered approach to representations of social objects. He previously received an MA in Computational Social Science from the University of Chicago, and his research interests lie in the intersection of AI and the social sciences: using computational tools to probe questions of social behaviour, as well as critically examining the effects which the information age has had on our species and planet. He has previously co-authored publications in the Journal of Machine Learning Research, the proceedings of the International Conference on Computational Linguistics, and Cognition, and has authored a book on NLP and Computational Linguistics with Python.
