Lecturer, University of Bristol
Edwin Simpson is a lecturer at the University of Bristol, working on interactive natural language processing (NLP).
His current research focusses on enabling end users to control the behaviour of AI systems by providing preferences and instructions to an agent in natural language, while minimising the costs of using large models.
He has published a number of papers on machine learning from unreliable data sources, such as crowdsourced data, and how this can be applied to models of arguments and summaries. Prior to joining the University of Bristol, Edwin was a post-doc at TU Darmstadt, Germany and completed his PhD at the University of Oxford on Bayesian machine learning methods.
