About Building Babylon

Building Babylon is a working journal and lab-book for my work in machine learning and language modelling (in a broad sense).  Here, I publish my ideas, notes and comments on the work of others.  I hope in this way to provoke contact with other interested researchers and practitioners who might be able to help me on my way, and with whom I can exchange ideas.

Much of what is posted is the residue of my own efforts to learn some of the elementary things I should have liked to have already known. Perhaps they’ll be useful to someone else, perhaps not.

Please get in touch at or via email below if you’ve corrections or comments.

About me

I originally trained as a pure mathematician (in Lie representation theory) before leaving academia for machine learning in industry in 2012. You can contact me on Twitter (@benwilson_ml) or LinkedIn.
