Stephan Busemann is the associate head of the research department "Multilinguality and Language Technology" (MLT), where he works as Principal Researcher, Research Administrator and Project Leader. His areas of expertise are artificial intelligence, computational linguistics, language technology and here in particular text generation.
Stephan Busemann studied Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence and Linguistics at the Technical University of Darmstadt and at the University of Hamburg. In 1990, he received his doctorate from the Department of Computer Science at Saarland University.
After receiving his diploma in 1984, he worked at the University of Hamburg on the generation of dialog utterances in the context of the widely recognized dialog system HAM-ANS. In 1985, he moved to the TU Berlin, where he worked on implementations of Generalized Phrase Structure Grammars (GPSG) and their use for machine translation as part of the EUROTRA-D accompanying research. His PhD thesis involved the development of a GPSG-based generation system. In 1990, he moved to DFKI in Saarbrücken and worked on constraint-based dialog systems for natural language. Later, his work also included information extraction, text classification, text generation, and technology roadmapping.
Since 1990, Stephan Busemann has regularly taught students at Saarland University. He supervises doctoral, master and bachelor theses. In 2000, he was appointed "DFKI Research Fellow". In 2011, Stephan Busemann was appointed Honorary Professor of Computational Linguistics at Saarland University.
