Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Unbabel
João Graça is a co-founder and chief technology officer of Unbabel, a company that removes language barriers by blending artificial intelligence with real time, human translations.
Previously, he worked with INESC-ID developing research in natural language processing (NLP) and went on to do his PostDoc in NLP at the University of Pennsylvania. João developed a new statistical learning method that allowed for the insertion of declarative knowledge during learning, unlocking previously impossible-to-tackle problems. He is also one of the co-founders of the Lisbon Machine Learning Summer School (LxMLS).
