¡Hola y bienvenidos!
This is the introduction thread for Spanish NLP practitioners. Please introduce yourself by telling us a little bit about:
- Your name, Github, Hugging Face, and/or Twitter handle
- Your interest in Spanish NLP
- Some projects you are working on or interested in starting
- Any other languages that you speak, any personal interests, or anything else
As for me, I’m Lewis (@lewtun on GitHub / Hub, @_lewtun on Twitter) and I’m a data scientist in Switzerland where I build ML-powered applications for startups and enterprises, mostly in the domains of NLP , time series , and topological data analysis .
I spent a big chunk of my childhood living in Chile, which is why I’m interested in Spanish NLP
My most recent project with Transformers involved applying XLM-R to improve the routing accuracy of customer support tickets in the 3 major Swiss languages (German, French, and Italian). I’m personally interested in making Transformers efficient through techniques like distillation, quantization, and pruning, because deploying these large models in the real-world is no mean feat!
Looking forward to e-meeting you all!
