Dr. Michael A. Hedderich


I’m a post-doc researcher in machine learning, natural language processing and human-computer interaction at Cornell University. My research goal is to make building AI systems more accessible and to open up machine learning to more fields and domains. ​I’m both interested in developing new technology as well as building bridges from AI to other interested fields. To this end, I’m working on both foundational methods in AI as well as applications in fields ranging from archeology to medical research.


My current affiliation is
Cornell University, USA, with the group of Qian Yang.
In the past, I had the pleasure to work with
User Interfaces group of Antti Oulasvirta at Aalto University, Finland.
Disney Research Studios in Zürich, Switzerland.
Spoken Language Systems (LSV) group of Dietrich Klakow at Saarland Informatics Campus, Germany, where I did my PhD.
Exploratory Data Analysis group of Jilles Vreeken at the Cluster of Excellence (now CISPA Helmholtz Center), Germany.
Deep Data lab of Gerard de Melo at Rutgers University, USA.
Gerhard Weikum and Andrew Yates at the Max Planck Institute for Computer Science, Germany.
the machine translation research and development teams at Amazon in Berlin.
