Experiential Analytics
+ Data Management

We empower people with better information
to make their best decisions.

Research Areas

Knowledge Representation & Reasoning

Our vision is to investigate, innovate, propose, and build symbiotic systems that mutually exploit language models (LM) and knowledge graphs (KG) in a continuous and (semi-) automated learning paradigm to address current challenges.

Data AI Symbiosis

Our work in the data-management-for-AI area focuses on knowledge grounding and contextualization for knowledge-guided generation, fact-checking and verification, data lake usability, and benchmarking multi-agent systems for enterprise applications, among others.

Human Centered AI

Our recent work includes an exploratory programmable annotation framework geared toward NLP researchers, tools to support exploration of text and knowledge graphs for subject-matter experts, and tools for tracking and planning model development for product managers.

Natural Language Processing

We continually aim to boost NLP capabilities by defining new architectures, using hybrid neuro-symbolic paradigms, and exploring domain-specific characteristics that positively impact the quality, consistency, fairness, and truthfulness of our solutions on HR and related domains.

Helping Users Make Everyday Decisions

Since 2016, Megagon Labs (formerly Recruit Institute of Technology) has conducted top-notch research and built technologies in Mountain View and Tokyo.  We are making impacts through the worldwide services and products of the Recruit Group by empowering people to make their best decision.  Our research focuses are in the broad areas of Artificial Intelligence, Data Management, and Natural Language Processing.
