You enter a dark forest. Standing in front of you is:

An associate professor named Hal Daumé III. He wields appointments in Computer Science and Language Science at UMD where he studies and blogs about natural language processing (ACL, EMNLP) and machine learning (ICML, NIPS). He is currently director of the CLIP lab, and runs the ML reading group. Percy Liang and he built Braque, a news for researchers site. He maintains the structured prediction framework in VW. He is currently teaching CMSC 723: Computational Linguistics I.
