Ted Benson

Hello.

I am a Ph.D. student at MIT CSAIL advised by David Karger. My research is driven by a desire to see better use of structured data on the web.

I am planning to graduate Summer 2014 and will try my hand at making the world a better place out in industry. If you think that might involve you, please reach out: eob@csail.mit.edu

I'm currently working on Cascading Tree Sheets, which does for web structure what CSS did for style. I've also done a bit of natural language processing work at MIT and Google, which you're using whenever you talk to your Android phone. Prior to coming to MIT, I did R&D at BBN Technologies.
