Stephan Oepen

Professor in Informatics at the University of Oslo, where he manages a research group in Language Technology. Oepen studied Linguistics, Computer Science, Literature, and Russian at the Free University of Berlin, Technical University of Berlin, State University of Volgograd, and Saarland University. Prior to his appointment at Oslo, he worked, among others, at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence, Stanford University, and a Silicon Valley start-up. His academic specialization is in semantic parsing, the automated analysis of natural language text into abstract, logical-form representations of meaning. Oepen will seek to spread knowledge within NEALT about opportunities for increased use of National and Nordic High-Performance Computing eInsfractures, as well as to contribute to dialogue among interested parties, across fields of specialization and country borders.
