About Elias Stengel-Eskin

I am currently an undergraduate Honours Cognitive Science major at McGill University, focusing in computer science and linguistics. I work as a research assistant at the Montreal Language Modeling Lab (MLML). I am interested in natural language processing and computation linguistics. My personal research interests lie in unsupervised models of language; specifically, I want to take advantage of the successes of deep learning to make better unsupervised algorithms for natural language processing. I am currently working on a variational inference algorithm for a model of language acquisition, which I describe in my thesis.
