KDD Workshop on Programming Language Processing

August 17, 2021
CodeBERT from EMNLP 2020

I attended this workshop, held as part of KDD 2021 organised by Aussie’s Chang Xu (U.Syd), Siqi Ma (UQ) and David Lo (SMU). Gave my introductory talk (PDF), which was putting deep learning into context and explaining the background to language models and how they could be used. Then Nan Duan (Microsoft Research Asia) told everyone how his 20 person international team had been doing just that for several years. Their work is well advertised on the usual places (ZDNet, The Verge, etc.) and is absolutely amazing stuff. This will revolutionise coding the way deep language models have revolutionised NLP.


Interview with Monash Tech Talks team

I did another interview, MCd by our Dean John Whittle and Dr. Catherine Lopes, again on AI and machine learning.  This one was professionally organised with a green screen and in an official interview studio.  I had to find a plain, non-green shirt, no stripes or patterns!
