From French Linguistics to Speech Science to Data Science to Google: Getting from Here to There

Abstract: Moving between sectors, industries and countries isn’t as hard as it might sound. From French doctoral student to Google Computational Linguist and Research Associate at the University of Memphis’ Institute for Intelligent Systems, Dr. Christopher Stewart will explain in this talk. The focus will be on the ideas behind practical research and development, emphasizing the translation of graduate training to a flexible, stimulating career. Come for the shameless plug of his forthcoming book on language technologies, stay for the tips on approaching the academic and non-academic job markets!
