Tosin Adewumi is a researcher in natural language processing (NLP) under the supervision of Prof. Marcus Liwicki as principal supervisor and Foteini Liwicki as assistant supervisor. My PhD topic is "Vector Representations of Idioms in Data-Driven Chatbots for Robust Assistance". We have ongoing work to produce the largest idioms datasets in English, Swedish and Yoruba. We have produced the first ever Swedish analogy test set for word embeddings. The state-of-the-art, open-domain chatbot to be deployed will be based on reinforcement learning.
My previous position was the Director of Operations at Ephphatha Consulting, in Nigeria. My experience as a professional in the IT industry has spanned both public and private organisations. I am also a member of Nigeria Computer Society (NCS). In 2016, I had the privilege of being the seminar speaker on e-petitions for members of the public petitions committee of the Federal House of Representatives of Nigeria.
