  • Informing artificial intelligence researchers as to how humans talk — the prototype of gmail’s ‘smart compose’ feature was trained on the Enron corpus
  • The early versions of Apple’s Siri was developed by a few of the researchers from the MIT team working with the initial archive
  • A benchmarking study on email folders to understand if machine learning could replace humans to build email folders (not yet — we are too idiosyncratic)
  • Helping us understand how viruses spread through populations
  • Identifying terrorist cells through phone records by understanding how networks (across a group of people) function
