with Illia Polosukhin
Teaching Machines to Code
July 23, 2018 – H. 5:30 PM @ Pi School (via Indonesia 23, Rome)
by invitation only
Illia is the co-founder of NEAR.ai, where they are teaching machines how to code.
Before that, Illia was an Engineering Manager at Google Research, leading team of deep learning researchers working on NLP and major TensorFlow contributor. He is one of the authors of a paper which first described the Transformer model implemented in tensor2tensor, “Attention is all you need” (Vaswani et al. 2017).
Illia will tell us about his work in program synthesis: using combination of deep learning and programming language techniques to generate programs based on natural language intent.
Join us in hearing from Illia how this will impact the future of software development.
