I am currently a PhD student in the natural language processing group at the Spanish Open Distance University. My areas of interest are Digital Humanities and generative language models.
At the Madrid Training School I will teach on semantic representation of texts, from classical techniques to more modern techniques such as contextual embeddings.
As a computer scientist and also as a literature enthusiast, particularly poetry enthusiast, one of my first approaches to textual analysis consisted in the development of a metrical analysis algorithm for Spanish poetry. It was the first time I realized the power of applying modern computational techniques to classical tasks in the humanities.
I would recommend that Training School students look for an area that they are enthusiastic about, even if it is not fashionable or of little use, as the in-depth knowledge we can achieve about what we enjoy is greater than studying a subject for trendiness or duty.
