Robert Bamler

I am a postdoctoral machine learning researcher at Disney Research. My research interests include scalable algorithms for approximate Bayesian inference, and applications to natural language processing (NLP).

I joined Disney Research in September of 2016, where I’ve since been working in the statistical machine learning group lead by Stephan Mandt. From 2012 to 2016, I was a PhD student at the Institute for Theoretical Physics of the University of Cologne under the supervision of Achim Rosch, and supported by German Telekom Foundation.

  • Before smartphones, how did people access Wikipedia when they were on the go? Some (few, really) used one of the first third party iPod apps.
