Alvas (short for alvations) is a geek with a hint of linguistics, dabbling in philosophy. Occam's razor is his rule of thumb and sometimes he wanders into his Truman's land or his Norwegian Wood.

Currently, alvas is working on machine translation, language learning technologies and Natural Language Processing at Rakuten Institute of Techonology. Previously, alvas was working on translation technoloiges(human and machine) in the Translation Technology Group at the Sprachwissenschaften sowie Übersetzen und Dolmetschen department @ Universität des Saarlandes. Previous previously, alvas was a linguistics graduate student in Bond lab @ NTU (ミニオンはいつまでたってもミニオン). In his linguistics pursuit, he would love to work with his mother tongue, Hokkien. Meanwhile he's trying to let computers understand and produce human language and spreading Awesomeness.

Currently, alvas seldom edit stuff on Wikipedia, but here's some things that alvas did on wikipedia:
