Zachary Lipton

PhD Student

Education history:

Graduated with honors from Columbia University in 2007 majoring in Mathematics and Economics

Research interests:
I currently research multilabel classification and large scale neural networks for natural language processing, with application to medical data. I also study evaluation methodology with an eye towards philosophical considerations of machine learning. What are useful performance metrics / loss functions. Further, what are we training our systems to do and how does it accord with our intuition about how we think they should ideally behave?

​Upcoming Publication
Optimal Thresholding of Classifiers to Maximize F1 Measure​ - Forthcoming at the 2014 European Conference on Machine Learning.
