I'm a machine learning researcher in Google Brain (team inside Google Research/AI)). I have several years' experience deploying machine learning models in production to millions of users, but spend most my time doing pure research now.
Many of the above papers involved collaborations with superb Brain interns and residents who I mentored:
Former Interns -- Abigail See, Jamie Murdoch, Ethan Steinberg, Eric Chu, Yu-An Chung,
Jingzing Zhang (hosted by Yao Zhao).
Former Residents -- Colin Raffel, Jie Ren.
