Khalil Sima'an . I worked with Khalil for 1 year on his VICI NWO project Machine Translators: Teaching Computers to Translate Using their own Words.
Andy Way . I was lead engineer in a project with eBay Inc. between 2016 and 2017 as part of the ADAPT Centre, and worked under Andy’s supervision. We studied the application of multi-modal neural machine translation to translating eBay’s product listings. Two joint publications came out of it, and you can find the papers here (EACL) and here (Vision&Language Workshop).
Lucia Specia . GitHub . I met Lucia in classes she taught during my Erasmus Mundus master (in NLP&HLT) in 2012, in Wolverhampton. Later in that year, I worked with Lucia in an EPRSC project where we started studying how to use images in machine translation (before it was cool:). More recently, in 2017, I spent two weeks collaborating with her group funded by the Integrating Vision&Language COST Action, working on multi-task learning for NMT.
Wilker Aziz . I met Wilker in England as a Master student while he was still doing his PhD. Wilker is not just a great friend of mine but really a mentor who has collaborated immensely to enhance my scholarliness (specially in Bayesian neural networks). If you are (very) lucky, you could witness us moonlight as a bossa nova duo.
