About Me

Hello! My name is TRAN Van Khanh.
I was a PhD student in Natural Language Processing at Nguyen lab, JAIST, Japan. My research experience covers Natural Language Generation, Deep Learning, Reinforcement Learning, and Deep Bayesian Nets. I am particularly excited about recurrent neural networks, deep generative models, and the scientific applications of deep learning.

Research Interests

  • Deep Learning, Reinforcement Learning
  • Natural Language Generation, Natural Language Processing, Dialogue Systems, Chitchat
  • Deep Bayesian Networks
