Kyle Lo



I’m a Lead Scientist at the Allen Institute for AI working on the OLMo and Semantic Scholar projects. I specialize in topics in natural language processing, machine learning and human-AI interaction:


I live in Seattle. When not working, I hang with my cat Belphegor and play board games (Robinson Crusoe, Cthulu: Death May Die, Hanabi) and video games (Baldur's Gate 3, Valheim, Slay the Spire, Noita, Vampire Survivors). I love D&D and am currently on year three of a campaign in Eberron. I'm a boba enthusiast and my favorites in Seattle are Xing Fu Tang, TP Tea and Sunright Tea Studio.
