Tsz Kin Lam, M.Sc.

Starting from 15th Jan, 2019, I am a Doctoral Student under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Stefan Riezler.

Research Interests

  • Machine learning with human in the loop
  • Multi-agent (Reinforcement) learning
  • Bayesian technique
  • Text/Speech-To-Text Translation
  • Speech Recognition

News

  • Get one paper accepted to the main conference of ACL 2022! Will update the pdf soon!
  • Doing my internship at Amazon Berlin since Nov 2021!
