Christopher Manning is a Professor of Computer Science and Linguistics at Stanford University. His Ph.D. is from Stanford in 1995, and he held faculty positions at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Sydney before returning to Stanford. He is a fellow of AAAI and the Association for Computational Linguistics. Manning has coauthored leading textbooks on statistical approaches to natural language processing (Manning and Schuetze 1999) and information retrieval (Manning, Raghavan, and Schuetze, 2008). His recent work has concentrated on probabilistic approaches to NLP problems and computational semantics, particularly including such topics as statistical parsing, robust textual inference, machine translation, large-scale joint inference for NLP, computational pragmatics, and hierarchical deep learning for NLP.
