I am a professor working at DSV-Stockholm University, I perform research in natural language processing and information retrieval, the last ten years I have been working on text mining on electronic patient records to build useful tools to improve health.
Deep learning based on various neural network architectures has seen tremendous success in recent years, substantially outperforming alternative learning approaches in fields such as natural language processing. By learning abstract representations through multiple processing layers, the learning task can be … Continue reading →
