Thomas has a strong passion for all things NLP: ranging from new SOTA Language Model papers until putting full-scale text-search systems into production.
He has a particular interest and expertise in the area of multilingual NLP, a field that is becoming increasingly developed and important to unlock value for non-English use-cases.
As a Chapter Lead for the NLP Chapter, he and the team observe the landscape and evaluate and refine what is happening into useful best-practices, templates and tips for both internal and external knowledge advancement.
Next to this, he also tries to stay as much up-to-date on geographic data and geo-ml as possible.
As part of the Delivery Unit, Thomas helps companies accelerate their AI efforts by implementing NLP realisations for real-world problems into production-ready cloud solutions.
Given his background in Engineering and working experience as a Consultant, he feels a special sense of pride when being able to make advanced technical matters explainable and relatable to wide audiences.
