Jussi Karlgren

I am a mathematically inclined linguist and I work on statistical analyses of human language as it can be observed in live usage. (My ORCID).

I work since 2019 as a researcher at Spotify in Stockholm and I am a docent of language technology at Helsinki University. I have been a researcher at SICS (now RISE ICT) for 20 years and worked at Gavagai, a text analysis company I co-founded for 10 years. I have during the the past years also been in various research-related roles at IBM Nordic Laboratories, Columbia University, Xerox PARC, New York University, Yahoo! Research in Barcelona, Recorded Future, Stanford University, and KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Other organisations I am or have been involved with in various advisory roles are Berättarministeriet, Institutet för analytisk sociologi at Linköping University, Statens medieråd, and Kungliga Biblioteket.

I can be found on Twitter (mostly in Swedish), I write the occasional note on technical and academic matters (och ibland, fast mer sällan numera, gör jag en del anteckningar om annat). I also snap the occasional picture of stuff I like.
