Résumé

Hello, I am Jozef. I am doing my PhD at University of Edinburgh under the supervision of Kenneth Heafield. My main interests are deep learning methods applied to machine translation. I am funded by EPSRC's CDT in Data Science program. Before coming to Edinburgh I was at University of Cambridge where I studied Computer Science. While in Cambridge, I was awarded WCIT's "Outstanding Technology Student" prize.

Projects

2016 Pipeline tolerant decoder [PDF] [code]

With software prefetching large n-gram language models run faster which results in a performance improvement of machine translation systems.

2015 Online recognition of handwritten mathematical equations [PDF]

Using convolutional neural networks, sympy library and some heuristics, I made an Android app that solves the equations you draw. The app supported basic arithmetic and trigonometric functions, lower-case English letters as variables, exponentiation and (nested) fractions.
