||Since mid 90s, Dr. Pushpak Bhattacharyya has made very impactful and significant contributions to the technology of Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning (ML). The theme of his research is “Multilingual Computation”, and his work shows that languages of the world can help one another for their computation. Of particular impact is the research on multilingual word sense disambiguation (WSD), where the idea of “projection” has been picked up in many other areas of NLP. On the national front Dr. Bhattacharyya has led search engine and machine translation projects with participation from multiple institutes of the country. Dr. Bhattacharyya has contributed to placing India in the Natural Language Processing research map of the world by applying his research to technology of Indian languages. His insights and the techniques, tools and resources his research group at IIT Bombay have developed, are being used by academia and industry all over the world.
