Dr. Karthik Dinakar Ph.D. is a computer scientist specializing in machine learning, natural language processing, and human-computer interaction. His Doctoral thesis involved representing human expertise formally within probabilistic graphical models as a way of making algorithms learn from both the data as well as human expertise within their inference training loops. Karthik was a Reid Hoffman Fellow at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the recipient of the 2015 Dewey Winburne Award. Karthik has previously held positions at Microsoft and Deutsche; he was invited to the White House on two occasions to present his research on the computational detection of cyber bullying and use of probabilistic graphical Bayesian models for crisis counseling. Karthik holds a Doctoral degree from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
