Collegiate Affiliation

I am fascinated by the historical changes in languages, and I continue to pursue my passion in Medieval studies. During the pandemic years, I took up Latin again, and I have just started reading some of Ovid’s poems. My practical work, however, is devoted to the teaching of languages – primarily German. As of late, I have been paying attention to the emerging of large language models and the improvements of machine translation. This was also the topic of my latest conference paper, and if anyone is interested, I will happily share my observations. (One more thing – the paper is in German.)
