This is the introduction thread for Hebrew NLP practitioners.

Welcome! Please introduce yourself and let us know:

  • Your interest in Hebrew NLP
  • Some projects you are working on or interested in starting
  • Any other languages that you speak, any personal interests, anything else really :wink:

As for me, I’m Vladimir Gurevich (@imvladikon on GitHub, linkedin) and I’m a data scientist in Israel,
and I’m interested in Hebrew NLP :smiley: , in making transformers efficient and in making knowledge enriched models.

Nice to e-meeting you all!

I’m Alan Feder / @AlanFeder (twitter & Github) based in the US, but I spent some time in Israel previously – just getting my feet wet in NLP in general, but excited about exploring it in a Hebrew context.
