About the job
Understanding natural language is at the core of Google's technologies. The Natural Language Understanding (NLU) team at Google guides, builds, and innovates methodologies around semantic analysis and representation, syntactic parsing and realization, morphology and lexicon development. Our work directly impacts the Assistant, Search, the Knowledge Graph, and Google Translate, as well as other Machine Intelligence research.
As a Computational Linguist, you will collaborate with Engineers and Researchers in Assistant and Research & Machine Intelligence to develop language understanding models that improve our ability to understand and generate natural language. Many linguists focus on one or more languages in which they have special expertise, and propose directions and solutions to language-specific problems.
Google aims to build products that organize the world's information and make it universally accessible to our users. As a Product Manager at Google, you could be working on new technologies, platforms, consumer facing products, and/or enterprise systems. The end goal will be to match you with the team that best aligns with your interests, experience, and where you will have the most impact.
Monitor data acquisition (collection and linguistic annotations) and curation; design quality control methodology, experiments, implementation and improvements.
Develop grammars for different languages and Natural Language Processing (NLP) task-oriented applications and/or define and implement higher level grammar architecture.
Work closely with engineers and researchers by providing linguistic expertise and direction for language specific NLP and/or dialogue analysis/modeling.
Train and/or evaluate NLP or dialogue systems, identify errors/regressions and propose solutions.
Extend or design conceptual frameworks and semantic representations to support richer models of language use (e.g. incorporating frame semantics, the syntax/semantics interface, discourse and pragmatics, etc).
