I am Ignacio Iacobacci. I’m currently working as a Senior Researcher at Huawei Noah’s Ark Lab, where I lead the Speech & Semantic team in London.
I received my doctorate from the Computer Science Department at La Sapienza University in Rome (Italy). My current research interests are in dialogue systems and natural language understanding. My main field of study during my PhD was about neural-grounded distributional models, such as word and sense embeddings, and word sense disambiguation.
My background include a MSc. in Computer Science from University of Buenos Aires (Argentina) and almost 10 years as a software engineer, including 4 years as a machine learning / NLP specialist.
