My name is Elkin Darío Gutiérrez. I'm a graduate student in the Cog Sci Department at UCSD and a member of the AI Group at the International Computer Science Institute at Berkeley. My interests include machine learning (especially spectral approaches to unsupervised learning), natural language-processing, computational semantics, the evolution of language and complex communication systems, and human semantic processing. Here is a (slightly outdated) version of my curriculum vitae (PDF format).
