Hi I'm Shang-Wen (Daniel) Li. I am a researcher focusing on speech and language understanding, conversational AI, meta-learning, and autoML. I earned my PhD from MIT CSAIL in 2016, supervised by Prof. Victor Zue. I joined Amazon AWS, Amazon Alexa and Apple Siri since my graduation, and now I work at Facebook AI as a Research and Engineering Manager. I am always looking for talented interns and team members passionate about deep learning, algorithms, and coding.
