Henry Lieberman

I'm a Research Scientist at the MIT Media Laboratory. I work with the Agents Group. I'm especially interested in using Artificial Intelligence techniques to improve all kinds of user interfaces. Much of my work is centered on the use of Common Sense knowledge, simple facts about people and everyday life. I also work on bringing the full procedural power of computers to non-expert users through Programming by Example, natural language and visual programming. I'm also interested in a wide variety of other topics in AI and interactive computing.
