Myle Ott

Research Engineer

I am a Research Engineer in Facebook’s AI Research group (FAIR), focusing on projects in dialogue, machine translation and text generation. Prior to Facebook, I completed my PhD at Cornell University in their NLP group, where my research explored approaches for identifying deception and sentiment in social media text.


Machine learning, natural language processing, and machine translation.
