About me

Aarne I'm a PhD student in Language Technology at University of Helsinki.

My research focuses on natural language understanding, natural language inference, computational semantics and deep learning.

I work in Jörg Tiedemann's research group and the ERC & Academy of Finland funded project Found in Translation: Natural Language Understanding with Cross-Lingual Grounding (FoTran). The goal is to build language-independent abstract meaning representations by training neural networks with massively parallel multilingual datasets. My aim is to study the applicability of those meaning representations to natural language inference tasks.

I'm also the founder and CEO of Basement AI, a private natural language processing research lab and consultancy focusing on helping organisations to identify and unlock the value of their data through machine learning and natural language processing.
