A portrait of Arun Chaganty

I am a research scientist at Google Research and primarily work on conversational AI. Previously, I led the Conversations AI team at Square, Inc and was the Head of AI at Eloquent Labs. I graduated with a PhD in computer science at Stanford University, working with Percy Liang and the Stanford NLP group. If you’d like to reach out to me, just shoot me an email at chaganty@cs.stanford.edu.

My highly significant other Maithra Raghu also does machine learning.

Research Interests

I believe any functional future of the world will need natural language technology to make it easier for people to understand and consume information. I care about how we can bring greater trust, transparency and fairness in voice through technology, and I think conversational AI systems will be the key means in which we can achieve these goals.

In the past, I have worked on human-in-the-loop evaluation, providing guarantees for learning latent variable models, probabilistic programming, statistical relational learning and hierarchical reinforcement learning.
