Congratulations to Dr Nancy Chen from A*STAR's I2R on being awarded the 2019 L'Oreal Singapore For Women in Science National Fellowship Award (Physical and Engineering Sciences).
"Surrounded by Spanish speaking friends while growing up in the United States, I’ve always been intrigued by the intricacies and nuances of human language. Learning that mathematical models can be used as a universal framework to characterize and process any spoken language has been fascinating and inspired me to go into the field of conversational artificial intelligence (AI).
I am honored that my contributions are recognized by the judges of this year’s L'Oreal Singapore For Women in Science National Fellowship Award. I hoped that this will encourage more young female scientists to dedicate to science, technology, engineering and math."
