Dr. Carolyn P. Rosé is a Professor of Language Technologies and Human-Computer Interaction in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University.
The title of her keynote talk will be "Lifelong Learning in a Web Scale Opportunity Space"
Her research program is focused on better understanding the social and pragmatic nature of conversation, and using this understanding to build computational systems that can improve the efficacy of conversation between people, and between people and computers. In order to pursue these goals, she invokes approaches from computational discourse analysis and text mining, conversational agents, and computer supported collaborative learning.
Her research group’s highly interdisciplinary work, published in over 200 peer reviewed publications, is represented in the top venues in 5 fields: namely, Language Technologies, Learning Sciences, Cognitive Science, Educational Technology, and Human-Computer Interaction, with awards in 3 of these fields.
She serves as Past President and Inaugural Fellow of the International Society of the Learning Sciences, Inaugural Chair of the International Alliance to Advance Learning in the Digital Era, and Executive Editor of the International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning.
