My name’s Josh and I’m an NSF Graduate Research Fellow and PhD candidate at the University of Arizona. My research is on automatic speech recognition, but I do some Natural Language Processing and general Machine Learning as well. I also keep a close eye on Artificial Intelligence. This blog is some of what I’m learning along the way.
Even though I spend most of the day with my NLP / machine learning hat on, I’m still very much a linguist in that I love languages. I’ve spent a good amount of time studying French and Russian, and I’ve dabbled in a handful of others. Kyrgyz is the language I often use in my research, because it’s pretty cool!
