Tutorials

  • I have been organising some notes on topics I teach.
  • Together with Philip Schulz, I am organising a tutorial on variational inference. The tutorial is modular and some of its modules have already been presented a few times (check the repository for a gist of our schedule).

Projects

Featurised EM

In the spring of 2016, I offered a BA project on feature-rich unsupervised alignment models. My student Guido Linders did a great job (thesis, code)!

Slice sampling from PCFGs

In the spring of 2015, I offered a BA project on slice sampling from PCFGs. My student Iason de Bondt did a great job (thesis, code)!
