Yale NLP Lab

The Yale NLP Lab is a research group in the Department of Computer Science at Yale University led by Arman Cohan. The research lab started in January 2023 with a broad focus in AI, including language modeling, representation learning, retrieval, and applications in specialized domains. Active areas of research include (no particular order):

  • Understanding and extending generalization capabilities of Large Language Models
  • Evaluation and science of language models
  • Language modeling and representation learning for complex document-level tasks and long sequences
  • Multi-document and extreme multi-document language processing
  • Robust and trustworthy methods for generation and summarization
  • Applications to scientific text
