Google Research


We advance the state of the art in natural language technologies and build systems that learn to understand and use language in context.

About the team

Our team comprises multiple research groups working on a range of Language projects. We collaborate closely with teams across Google, leveraging efficient algorithms, neural networks, and graphical and probabilistic models to help guide product development and direction. In doing so, the Language team enables natural and assistive communication with users, finds answers to user questions, analyzes app store reviews for developers, and more.

Our researchers are experts in traditional natural language processing and machine learning, and combine methodological research with applied science. All of our Language engineers are equally involved in long-term research efforts and driving immediate applications of our technology. Our systems also benefit greatly from Google linguists, who provide valuable labelled data and assist in enabling internationalization.

Recent research interests of the Language team include syntax, discourse, conversation, multilingual modeling, sentiment analysis, question answering, summarization, and generally building better learners using labeled and unlabeled data, state-of-the-art modeling, and indirect supervision.
