Machine Learning and Friends Lunch

This Week

Thursday, September 24, 2020 - 12:00 John Wieting (Carnegie Mellon): Natural Language Processing


John Wieting

I am a PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University supervised by Taylor Berg-Kirkpatrick and Graham Neubig. I also collaborate with Kevin Gimpel at the Toyota Technological Institute at the University of Chicago. Previously, I did my MS with Dan Roth, currently at the University of Pennsylvania. 

My interests lie in machine learning, learning theory, optimization, natural language processing and computer vision. Currently my research has focused on machine learning and natural language processing.



The Machine Learning and Friends Lunch (MLFL) series is sponsored by our friends at Oracle Labs.


MLFL is a lively and interactive forum held weekly where friends of the UMass Amherst machine learning community can gather virtually and give or hear a 50-minute presentation on recent machine learning research.


What is it?   A gathering of students/faculty/staff with broad interest in the methods and applications of machine learning.
When is it?    Thursdays 12:00pm to 1:00pm, via Zoom
Who is invited?   Everyone is welcome.
