Erik Derner

Postdoctoral Researcher


Erik Derner received his Ph.D. in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence from the Czech Technical University (CTU) in Prague, Czech Republic, in 2022. He specializes in the societal and ethical implications of large language models (LLMs). His postdoctoral project involves evaluating biases in language corpora and models, proposing mitigation methods, and studying human-LLM interaction for privacy and ethical considerations. The goal of his work is to contribute to the development of safe, secure, and user-friendly language models, with a focus on low-resource languages such as Valencian.
