Information Access in the Era of Large Pretrained Neural Models

Distinguished Lecturer Seminar with Jimmy Lin


Professor Jimmy Lin holds the David R. Cheriton Chair in the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo. Lin received his PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2004. For a quarter of a century, Lin’s research has been driven by the quest to develop methods and build tools that connect users to relevant information. His work mostly lies at the intersection of information retrieval and natural language processing, with a focus on two fundamental challenges: those of understanding and scale.
