Research areas: natural language processing, computer vision, fake news detection, GPU computations

Position: Researcher

Sebastian is a KInIT partner and simultaneously assistant professor at the university in the city of Bydgoszcz, Poland. His current research activities are focusing on the computer vision, modelling and simulation problems, NLP research topics, fake news and anomaly detection in social and web media with the use of the state-of-the-art Deep Neural Networks (DNN) based on Transformers, and modern computational platforms, mainly based on GPU cards.

He is fascinated about the GPU and AI technology. In 2011 he applied for the CUDA Teaching Center title and it was successful, his university obtained the CTC title (as first university in Poland). Since 2018 he is the Deep Learning Institute (DLI) University Ambassador (second in Poland) and qualified, certified by NVIDIA instructor of “Building Transformer Based Natural Language Processing Applications” and “Fundamentals of Deep Learning for Computer Vision” courses. In October 2018 he was presenting at the Leading AI & Deep Learning Conference, the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference (GTC) Europe in Munich, where he showed his work entitled “Visual and Gesture Controllable Electromechanical System”.

He has participated in 10 national and international research projects, including the FP6, FP7, Horizon 2020 and COST actions. He repeatedly served as a reviewer to scientific journals and international conferences.
