What is this?

The first photo I’ve found

For now, this is a kind of my personal blog and it is intended to provide you (personally you!) with interesting information about magic world of NLP (aka Natural Language Processing) and other miraculous stuff. By the other miraculous stuff I mostly mean mysterious domain called Data Science. In the blog, I try to post things without too much math&formulas and simple enough (but not primitive!) for readers with no or little mathematical background. Currently I post not so often but I do my best to fix this 🙂

I write posts here both in English and Russian, so most of the texts here have translations from one language to another. So, if you can speak both languages, you may take advantage of looking for errors in translations and feeling ashamed for me every time you find them.

Things I write in this blog are usually based on various solutions I came across, some short notes I excavate from my pile of notebooks, and materials from MOOCs I take. However, sometimes I write here just some amusing stuff that is not connected with NLP and Data Science (and even Data Mining!). It happens, because I have absolute power over this blog and this kind of power corrupts absolutely 🙂

Who am I?

Everything around is just vanity of vanities and the asymmetric dualism of the linguistic sign (c)

I am an R&D Analyst, but sometimes I call myself Data Scientist, because it sounds more attractive. I am currently based in Moscow, Russia. In my daily job I am a part of a small (there are four of us) Research and Development team at NAUMEN. In our team we focus on (suddenly!) research and development of different solutions, connected with NLP, Information Retrieval and Data Mining. Before joining the team I worked at InfoWatch where I did some research and prototyping of some amusing stuff (you may consult my LinkedIn profile for details).

To let this chapter sound more ambitious, I write here that I have some scientific papers and patents. Also, I have published and been a speaker at some international scientific conferences (the most recent is AINL-ISMW FRUCT-2015). You may consult my LinkedIn profile if you wonder to know the details.

In my spare time I enjoy:

  • sleeping,
  • relentlessly increasing my level of proficiency,
  • contemplating the evanescence of life,
  • talk to smart people.

Post Scriptum

Once you’ve read so far, maybe you can advice me what to write next? Or, say, leave here a cheering comment? Or even you may drop me a couple of lines so we could talk about science and evanescence of life?
