Hi there!

My name is Marek. People also call me mr.Shu. It may have something to do with my last name.

I currently lead the Data Team at Slido, were we try to change the way audiences interact. Previously, I was helping to build a private search engine at DuckDuckGo.

My other occupation is teaching at the Comenius University in Bratislava.
When it comes to research, my interests are in NLP and applications of Computer Vision and generally Machine Learning to interesting practical problems.

September 2020
I had a chance to speak at the Slovak Machine Learning Summer School 2020 in Zilina. Check my slides on Neural Networks for Sequence Processing (in NLP)
July 2020
At the Slovak Economics Summer School 2020 I had a lecture on introducing supervised learning and sequence processing.
April 2020
Our paper A Summarization Dataset of Slovak News Articles has been accepted to LREC 2020!

I used to build robots, especially soccer playing ones. Now I try to give back by helping others start with that in RoboCupJunior.

Whenever time permits, I also like to write. Sometimes on my blog. Here is a small sample of the last pieces I published:

I am a big proponent of free and open-source software. Most of my contributions can be found on GitHub.

Should you like to stay in contact, let's do that via Twitter, LinkedIn, GitHub or mail.
