About

I am a Natural Language Generation Expert and Lead Data Scientist working for trivago in Düsseldorf, Germany . I can be found on Twitter with the handle @Saad_M.

Previously, I have worked as a Senior NLG Engineer at Arria NLG and also as an academic Research Scientist at the University of Aberdeen.

In my spare time I try and help to maintain the open source SimpleNLG realiser project on GitHub.

Here is an up-to-date copy of my curriculum vitae. I also have a LinkedIn profile as well.

Past Research Work

My past research work at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland involved the BabyTalk-Family (BT-Family) project. This used Natural Language Generation (NLG) technology to convert large sets of clinical neonatal patient data into automatic daily summaries for parents of babies in neonatal intensive care (NICU). This was done by using artificial intelligence and natural language technology to automatically analyse and summarise the information in a baby’s electronic patient record to produce reports focusing on matters of most interest to the parent. This work was based off a prototype that I developed during my PhD. BabyTalk-Family was successfully deployed and used by parents at the neonatal unit in Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh hospital during the research period.
