Work with two of the top 100 Natural Language Processing (NLP) engineers in the world, right here at Aveni.
Dr Lexi Birch, is a Senior Research Fellow at The University of Edinburgh School of Informatics and Head of Aveni Labs. For many years her research focus has been on neural machine translation, where her work has pushed the field forward.
Lexi is the coordinator of an EU project on low-resource machine translation called GoURMET, which researches the problem of lack of data for languages such as Tamil and Igbo for the media industry. Her recent work looks at transferring knowledge from tasks with lots of data to tasks with very little data, and how this can be applied to translation, multilingual dialogue and information extraction.
Dr Barry Haddow is a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Edinburgh’s School of Informatics, and is an experienced software engineer. His research has focused on making computers do useful things with text, such as pulling information from it or translating the text into different languages.
His main area of expertise is machine translation, i.e the automatic translation of text using probabilistic models. This work uses techniques from Machine Learning (ML), Natural Language Processing (NLP), scaled to work with enormous quantities of training data.
