Sonal Gupta

Research Scientist

I am a research scientist working on conversational AI systems. I completed my PhD at Stanford University in 2015 where I worked with Chris Manning on weakly supervised and interpretable information extraction. Prior to that, I finished my Master’s at University of Texas at Austin where I worked with Raymond Mooney and Kristen Grauman on combining language and vision modes for information extraction. Before joining FB, I developed deep learning models for conversational AI systems at Viv, a startup later acquired by Samsung.

Interests

Natural language processing, machine learning and conversational AI systems
