About the speaker
Christian Kasim Loan is a Lead Data Scientist and Scala expert at John Snow Labs and a Computer Scientist with over a decade of experience in software and worked on various projects in Big Data, Data Science and Blockchain using modern technologies such as Kubernetes, Docker, Spark, Kafka, Hadoop, Ethereum, and almost 20 programming languages to create modern cloud-agnostic AI solutions, decentralized applications, and analytical dashboards.
He has deep knowledge of Time-Series Graphs from his previous research in scalable and accurate traffic flow prediction and working on various Spatio-Temporal problems embedded in graphs at a Daimler lab.
Before his graph research, he worked on scalable meta machine learning, visual emotion extraction, and chatbots for various use cases at the Distributed Artificial Intelligence lab (DAI) in Berlin.
His most recent work includes the NLU library, which democratizes 5000+ state-of-the-art NLP models in 200+ languages in just 1 line of code for dozens of domains, with built-in visualizations and all scalable natively in Spark Clusters by its underlying Spark NLP distribution engine.
