About the workshop instructor: Nilabhra Roy Chowdhury is an M.Sc (Data Engineering) student at Jacobs University. He did his undergraduate studies on Computer Science and Engineering from Netaji Subhash Engineering College. His work is heavily centred around finding solutions to NLP / NLU tasks that is usable in a production setting and built from noisy real-world data. He uses both classical and deep learning approaches to solve these problems.
