Language Modeling at Web Scale

Kenneth Heafield is a Lecturer at the University of Edinburgh.
Motivated by machine translation problems, he prefers to build scalable
systems instead of approximating.  He is the author of the KenLM toolkit
that scales statistical language models to trillions of words and runs
Google-scale problems on a single machine.  He completed his PhD at
Carnegie Mellon and worked at Stanford as a postdoctoral scholar.
