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.
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.
