Jurafsky received his B.A in Linguistics (1983) and Ph.D. in Computer Science (1992) both at University of California, Berkeley, and then a postdoc at International Computer Science Institute, Berkeley (1992–1995).

He is the author of The Language of Food: A Linguist Reads the Menu (2014) and a textbook on speech and language processing (2000). Jurafsky was given a MacArthur Fellowship in 2002.

Academic life

He is the author of The Language of Food: A Linguist Reads the Menu (W. W. Norton & Company, 2014).[2] With James H. Martin, he wrote the textbook Speech and Language Processing: An Introduction to Natural Language Processing, Speech Recognition, and Computational Linguistics (Prentice Hall, 2000).

The first automatic system for semantic role labeling (SRL, sometimes also referred to as "shallow semantic parsing") was developed by Daniel Gildea and Daniel Jurafsky to automate the FrameNet annotation process in 2002, and Semantic Role Labelling has since become one of the standard tasks in natural language processing.
