Hal Daumé III is a professor in Computer Science at the University of Maryland, College Park; he also spends time at Microsoft Research, New York City. He holds joint appointments in UMIACS and Linguistics. He was previously an assistant professor in the School of Computing at the University of Utah. His primary research interest is in developing new learning algorithms for prototypical problems that arise in the context of natural language processing and artificial intelligence, with a focus on interactive systems, utilizing background knowledge, and fairness. He associates himself most with conferences like ACL, ICML, NeurIPS and EMNLP, where he has published over 100 papers. He has received several "best of" awards, including at ACL 2018, NAACL 2016, NeurIPS 2015, CEAS 2011 and ECML 2009. He has been program chair for NAACL 2013 (and chair of its executive board), and will be program chair for ICML 2020; he was an inaugural diversity and inclusion co-chair at NeurIPS 2018. He earned his PhD at the University of Southern California with a thesis on structured prediction for language (his advisor was Daniel Marcu). He spent the summer of 2003 working with Eric Brill in the machine learning and applied statistics group at Microsoft Research. Prior to that, he studied math (mostly logic) at Carnegie Mellon University, while working at the Language Technology Institute. When not sciencing, he spends most of his time working on the six limbs of yoga, cooking vegan food, and enjoying the outdoors (backpacking, skiing, etc.).
