Biographical Information

Jugal Kalita, PhD, professor of Computer Science

For twenty-four years, Professor Jugal Kalita has taught hundreds of students in his computer science classes at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS). Kalita, in his current research, works with students to create resources for endangered languages, such as expanding available dictionaries to endangered language speakers by writing computer algorithms to translate a low-resource language into a resource-rich language. Because his focus is on artificial intelligence, Kalita and his students are teaching the computer do the translation work. Kalita's first collaboration is with students and, subsequently, a variety of departments at UCCS and other universities at home and abroad.
