Hi! I'm Jerin Philip.
I am a research assistant under the supervision of Kenneth Heafield, at the School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh, contributing to the efforts of bringing MT to the browser. I am excited about the prospect of democratizing neural models, reducing the requirement on TPU/GPU centuries.
I graduated with an integrated Masters and Bachelors degree from IIIT Hyderabad, with a thesis on neural and multilingual approaches to machine translation with a focus on Indian Languages. This was pursued as part of multimodal learning group in Centre for Visual Information Technology (CVIT) under supervision of Prof. C.V Jawahar and Prof. Vinay P. Namboodiri.
I generally like keeping a lot on my plate: I spent quite some time doing NLP/MT in a vision lab, while maintaining HPC systems supporting research-students. I also like the hanging out and contributing in open-source communities, although I haven't been able to find places and time lately. Sometime soon, I intend to bring back competitive programming as a hobby.
