My name is Yossi Adi, I'm a machine learning researcher and professional drummer. Currently, I'm pursuing my Ph.D in computer science at Bar-Ilan University under the supervision of Dr. Joseph Keshet. My research interests are focused on developing and analyzing machine learning and deep learning algorithms for speech and language.
As a musician, I'm the drummer and one of the band members of Lucille Crew.

Music

Drumming has always been my passion, and it's been a very big part of my life. I'm the drummer of Lucille Crew - an international hip-hop and groove collective based in Tel Aviv. Here are a few links to our music.
