Natural Language Processing Seminar with Alex Tamkin
Alex Tamkin is a fifth-year Ph.D. student in computer science at Stanford, advised by Noah Goodman and part of the Stanford NLP Group and the Stanford AI Lab.
His research focuses on large pretrained models (e.g., GPT-3) and how we can better build, understand, and control them. He is especially interested in multimodal and domain-agnostic pretraining, which has the potential to unlock important applications in healthcare, engineering, and the natural sciences.
In the past, he also worked in reinforcement learning, human-robot interaction, and computational astronomy, and spent time at Google Brain, Google Language, and Google Civics.
