I am working at Aizawa-Yamakata-Matsui Lab, as a Ph.D. candidate. My research interests are in the interdisciplinary field between computer vision and natural language processing, and I have developed the scene text recognition model which is similar to image captioning. I am also interested in synthetic data generation to improve model performance.
