Jussi Karlgren

I am a mathematically inclined linguist and I work on statistical analyses of human language as it can be observed in live usage.

I am a Principal AI Scientist at Silo AI, where I work on generative language models, and I am a docent of language technology at Helsinki University. I have been a researcher at SICS (now RISE ICT) for 20 years; I co-founded and then worked at Gavagai, a text analysis company, for 10 years; and I was a principal research scientist at Spotify for 4 years. I have during the past years also held various research-related roles at IBM Nordic Laboratories, Columbia University, Xerox PARC, New York University, Yahoo! Research in Barcelona, Stanford University, and KTH Royal Institute of Technology. My research interests and selected publications are here.

I am currently a board member at Gavagai, Berättarministeriet, and Institutet för analytisk sociologi at Linköping University; I have been an advisor to or board member in a number of companies and other organisations including Recorded Future, Storytel, Kungliga biblioteket, and Statens medieråd. I have also worked as a brand name and market communication consultant through my own companies Nordtal and Numolo.

Besides my own research, I regularly organise research events and supervise MSc and PhD students. For fun, I have started putting together my academic ancestry.

I write the occasional note on technical and academic matters.

Ibland deltar jag i mer offentlig debatt eller i populärvetenskapliga sammanhang och ibland gör jag en del anteckningar om annat.
