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 applications. I completed my M.Sc. (2015) in Computer Science at Bar-Ilan University. My complete CV can be found here.

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:

Spotify

Deezer

iTunes

YouTube

SoundCloud

Additionally, this year I'll start teaching the Drums and Technology course (Hybrid Drumming) at Rimon School of Jazz and Contemporary Music.
