Lj Miranda | Some notes on software systems, machine learning, and research.

Hi! I'm Lj Miranda, and welcome to my blog!

I'm currently a member of the spaCy team at Explosion. Outside of work, I do a lot of game development, reviews, and retro photography.

In this blog, I write about my interests in natural language processing, machine learning systems, and games—so grab a cup of coffee and feel free to look around!
