Josep Valls-Vargas

I am a machine learning engineer specializing on NLP and deep learning working with the search and Sensei teams at Adobe. I am working on search and recommendation solutions using knowledge graphs and highly-scalable technology. Before Adobe, I was an applied scientist working on dialog management with the Alexa science team  at Amazon where I researched mechanisms for continuous learning for dialog management systems.

I received my PhD from the Department of Computer Science at Drexel University under the supervision of Dr. Santiago Ontañón Villar and Dr. Jichen Zhu. My research focused on topics related to natural language understanding and generation, computational narrative, experience management, user modeling and procedural content generation in the application domain of digital entertainment.

Previously, I received a M.S. in Computer Science from Drexel University in 2014, a M.S. in Artificial Intelligence and Computer Vision from UAB/IIIA-CSIC in 2011, and a B.S. in Computer Science from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona in 2010.
