Dr. Joseph Keshet

Machine Learning

Computer Science



I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from The School of Computer Science and Engineering at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 2008 under the supervision of Yoram Singer. I was Research Assistant Professor at University of Chicago and TTI-Chicago from 2009 to 2012. Since 2013 I am a faculty member at the Department of Computer Science of Bar-Ilan University. My research interests concern both machine learning and computational study of human speech and language. In machine learning my research is focused on deep learning and structured prediction, while my research on speech and language is focused on speech processing, speech recognition, laboratory phonology, and pathological speech.


Recently I have started to explore the vulnerability of machine learning algorithms to adversarial examples. The aims of my research in this area is to understand this universal phenomenon and to propose more robust training algorithms.
