Moderated by Dr. Caroline Weis

Panelists Include:

Akiko Eriguchi, Senior Researcher, Microsoft.  Akiko is a Senior Researcher at Microsoft. Her research interests lie in multilingual NLP and deep learning. With her position in the Microsoft Translator team, she has developed MT systems and multilingual NLP applications. Her work has been published in ACL, EMNLP, etc. She has served as a reviewer for ACL, EMNLP, NeurIPS, AAAI. She is also a 2021-2022 co-organizer of the Workshop on Asian Translation.

Prior to joining Microsoft, she was a Research Fellow (DC1) at the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science. She obtained her doctoral degree from the University of Tokyo, Japan, where her PhD thesis received the sixth AAMT Nagao Student award from the Asia-Pacific Association for Machine Translation.

Nora Hollenstein, Assistant Professor, University of Copenhagen.   Nora is an assistant professor in NLP & Cognitive Science at the University of Copenhagen. Before joining the Center for Language Technology at the University of Copenhagen, Nora was a PhD candidate at DS3Lab at ETH Zurich working on cognitively inspired natural language processing. She was also a lecturer at the Institute of Computational Linguistics of the University of Zurich. 

The focus of her research lies in enhancing NLP applications with cognitive data such as eye-tracking and brain activity recordings. She is especially interested in multi-modal learning, learning from limited data, and the interpretability and cognitive plausibility of machine learning models.

Jessica Schrouff, Senior Research Scientist, Google Research.  Jessica is a Senior Research Scientist at Google Research working on machine learning for healthcare. Before joining Google in 2019, she was a Marie Curie post-doctoral fellow at University College London (UK) and Stanford University (USA), developing machine learning techniques for neuroscience discovery and clinical predictions. 

Throughout her career, Jessica’s interests have lied not only in the technical advancement of machine learning methods, but also in critical aspects of their deployment such as their credibility, fairness, robustness or interpretability.
