I am currently working at Google on the Brain team. Previously I worked at the Information Sciences Institute with professors Kevin Knight and Daniel Marcu on topics related to neural network machine translation.

A GPU Recurrent Neural Network Toolkit Github

  • Supports multi-layered LSTM RNNs
  • Allows for model parallelization across multiple GPUs
  • Handles different loss functions such as MLE and NCE
