Daniel Ricks

Daniel is a master’s student at BYU with a gnawing urge to perform linguistic gymnastics. Earlier this year he worked with a group building a system that would generate poetry using word embeddings. Since then, he was an integral part of the team that won the 2016 IEEE CIG Text-based Adventure AI competition, and has both studied and/or improved implementations of Word2Vec, skip-thought vectors, RNNs, and GANs. Daniel is an avid hiker and a collector of fantasy books and vinyl records.
