Open Research Code

When we are playing around with tax payers’ money, we have to stay responsible. True scientific advancements can only happen when everyone has access to our research code. I maintain several open-source Python libraries for NLP tasks for Finnish and other languages.


Open Research Data

Data is power in the era of machine learning. It must be made available for others to use whenever possible. Just like I do with my research code, I do with my research data – I realease it for everyone.
