Dzmitry Bahdanau’s research goal is to further the adoption and widespread use of language user interfaces for human-computer interaction. His research seeks to align ideas from the disciplines of deep learning, linguistic and symbolic AI. Topics of key interest to Dzmitry include semantic parsing and task-oriented dialogue models, in particular making such models generalize more systematically, perform effectively with less training data and be easily adaptable to new domains.
