Jim Martin is a Professor of Computer Science and a Fellow in the Institute of Cognitive Science at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He graduated from Brooklyn Technical High School in Brooklyn, NY, where he grew up but doesn’t sound like he’s from. He went on to receive a B.S. in Computer Science from Columbia University, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California at Berkeley.
He has published two books and numerous articles on a wide range of topics related to Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Science and Natural Language Processing. His primary research interests are focused on computational semantics (how languages convey meaning, both to humans and computers) and its application to problems in healthcare and education.
At various times, various organizations have been kind enough to support his research including: National Science Foundation (NSF), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), National Institutes of Health (NIH), Google, Boeing, Hewlett-Packard, US West, and the Mars Co.
