Biography: Jussi Karlgren is a principal research scientist at Spotify and one of the founding partners of the text analysis company Gavagai. He has worked with language technology and interaction with information since 1987. His main research interest is on how to design a learning knowledge representation to handle the continuously changing form and content of human information and to meet the broad variety of human information needs an information system meets with, including entertainment and diversion. He believes human language to be very well designed representation and that technology to handle it should embrace its characteristics instead of viewing them as problems. Jussi Karlgren has worked on stylistic variation and genres in language and on large scale semantic spaces for application e.g. to sentiment analysis.
