Speaker Bio

Filip Ilievski is a Research Scientist in the Center on Knowledge Graphs within the Information Sciences Institute (ISI) at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering. Filip holds a Ph.D. in Natural Language Processing from the Vrije Universiteit (VU) in Amsterdam, where he also worked as a postdoctoral researcher before joining ISI. His research focuses on developing robust and explainable neuro-symbolic technology with positive real-world impact, based on neural methods and high-quality knowledge. Filip has made extensive contributions in identifying long-tail entities in text, performing robust and explainable commonsense reasoning, and managing large-scale knowledge resources. Over the past three years, he mentored around twenty Master’s and Ph.D. students, and has been collaborating with researchers at USC, CMU, Bosch Research, RPI, University of Amsterdam, and the University of Lyon. Filip has over 40 peer-reviewed publications in top-tier venues on commonsense reasoning, information extraction, and knowledge graphs. He has also been actively organizing workshops (AAAI’21), tutorials (AAAI’21, ISWC’20, ISWC’21, TheWebConf’22, KGC’22), symposiums (USC), and a special journal issue (Semantic Web Journal) on these topics.
