Slav Petrov

I am a Principal Scientist / Research Director co-leading the globally distributed Google AI Language team. We conduct natural language processing and machine learning research with applications to question answering, machine translation and information extraction. My research has been recognized with multiple Best Paper Awards (ACL'11, NAACL'12, ACL'16) and provides better language understanding to billions of users in a variety of Google products spanning Web Search, Assistant, Ads, Translate & Chrome. My team recently released BERT - Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers. Here is a vaguely current curriculum vitae.

Originally from Sofia, Bulgaria, I grew up in Berlin, Germany. Whenever Bulgaria plays Germany in soccer, I support Bulgaria.
