Tosin Adewumi is the Director of Operations at Ephphatha Consulting, based 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.
My undergraduate degree in Physics was at University of Ibadan while my Master’s in Computer Science was at University of Lagos, years afterwards in 2018. My penchant for learning and research has grown over the years and led to a PhD pursuit at LTU, with Prof. Marcus Liwicki as my principal supervisor and Foteini Liwicki as assistant supervisor. My areas of research interest include natural language processing (NLP), machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain technology. The current project at hand is the development of a “state-of-the-art” conversational system.
