Shuhei Kurita

(ja: 栗田修平)


Shuhei Kurita is an assistant professor in National Institute of Informatics. His research interests include natural language processing/understanding (NLP/NLU) with machine learning approaches, deep reinforcement learning (DRL), neuroscience, and statistical/computational physics. Currently, he has a keen interest in developing models with real world understandings such as the vision-and-language navigation task with a language-generation model and 3D world understanding such as ScanQA dataset.
He obtained a Ph.D. of Informatics (Kyoto University) in March 2019.
