My name is Arthur Bražinskas (pronounced Bra [zh] inskas), I’m a natural language processing and machine learning Phd researcher focusing on application of deep generative models to text summarization. I’m part of the ILCC group at the University of Edinburgh, and supervised by Ivan Titov and Mirella Lapata.
My research interests are variational inference methods and text generation from a latent space. I'm working on unsupervised and semi-supervised models for abstractive summarization.
I graduated (w distinction) in artificial intelligence from the University of Amsterdam, where I specialised in theoretical machine learning and natural language processing. Before joining ILCC I worked on machine learning modelling at Elsevier, Amazon, and Zalando.
