I am an assistant professor at the University of Ljubljana, Faculty for computer and information science, Laboratory for Data Technologies. My research interests are related to databases, natural language processing, semantic Web, information retrieval and information extraction. I am also teaching courses of natural language processing, web information extraction and retrieval, database design and management and information systems and modelling.

Internationally I actively cooperate with the Université Paris 1, Sorbonne, the School of Electrical Engineering, University of Belgrade (prof. Dražen Drašković), College of Education, University of South Florida (prof. Glenn Gordon Smith), and Harvard University, Department of Biomedical Informatics (prof. Marinka Žitnik).

Apart from research projects in the fields of data science and natural language processing, I am actively engaged in professional projects with industry.

Check regularly updated my curriculum vitae to find more about me.

Once you have a truly massive amount of information integrated as knowledge, then the human-software system will be superhuman, in the same sense that mankind with writing (or language itself) is superhuman compared to mankind before writing (or language itself). We look back on pre-linguistic cavemen and think 'they weren't quite human, were they?' In much the same way, our descendants will look back on pre-AI homo sapiens with exactly that mixture of otherness and pity.
