Lecturer at the computer science department of the Université Paris-Sud, François Yvon is director of the Laboratoire d’informatique pour la mécanique et les sciences de l’ingénieur (Limsi) (CNRS / Univ. Paris-Sud).
His research focuses primarily on the automatic acquisition of linguistic knowledge from text corpora, especially using statistical learning methods. These have given rise to a number of applications for the automatic processing of written and spoken languages (pronunciation dictionaries, symbolic and stochastic language models, etc.). His most recent work focuses on machine translation using statistical methods, an area of research he oversees at the Limsi.
