Giorgos Paraskevopoulos received his Diploma Degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer

Science from the National Technical University of Athens in June 2016. For his diploma thesis he developed a gesture control system for a smart room under the supervision of Dr Evaggelos Spyrou in NCSR Demokritos. Since 2017 he is a PhD student in NTUA, under the supervision of Prof. Alexandros Potamianos. His PhD thesis is in the area of Multimodal Processing using Deep Neural Networks. He has industry experience both as a software engineer (Intracom Telecom) and as a machine learning engineer (Behavioral Signals).

In 2019 and 2022 he worked as an applied research intern with the Alexa team in Amazon Lab126 and the Amazon Transcribe team in AWS. Since 2020 he is a research collaborator at the Institute for Speech and Language Processing, Athena RC. He has co-authored over 20 publications, in international peer-reviewed conferences and journals, with over 390 citations. Giorgos is an IEEE/SPS student member and has served as a reviewer in top-tier conferences, such as ACL, AAAI and Interspeech. He is an active open-source contributor. He has participated in multiple European research projects, e.g. Safety4All, Babyrobot. His research interests revolve around the extraction and fusion of multimodal representations, transfer learning and adaptation of neural networks to unseen domains.
