皆様、こんにちは。
コンテンツチームのDs110 です。

今回は招待講演が決定致しましたのでお知らせします。
招待講演は2015年から毎年実施をしています。
本講演の目的は各界(学術や産業など)の第一人者をお招きし、普段では中々、聞くことの出来ないお話をPythonを関連させて講演いただくというものです。

本年は台湾の長庚大学准教授Renyuan Lyu氏に講演をお願いすることとなりましたのでお知らせします。

Hello everyone.

I am Daisuke from the Program Committee of PyCon JP 2019.

Let me announce our invited speaker for this year.
The purpose of this talk is to have an expert in a specific field present on their expertise and tell their stories, which go beyond what is usually covered at a Python conference.

For this year, we deviced to invite Prof. Renyuan Lyu from the Chung Gung University in Taiwan.

Please see below for the his profiles.


Renyuan Lyu 氏

Renyuan Lyu's Profile 

日本語での紹介(一部省略)
Renyuan Lyuは、20代で台湾国立大学大学院電気工学研究科で博士号を取得。 その後、台湾の桃園にある長庚大学にてオーディオ、スピーチ、言語、およびパターン処理を専門とする教員になりました。 最初の数年間、彼はC / C ++、Matlab、Perlを使って学術研究と教育活動を行い、表準中国語と台湾語の音声認識システムを作成しました。
また、彼は2015年から2017年にてPyCon JP で登壇しました。
現在、彼は大学の准教授で、確率統計、信号処理、パターン認識、および音声認識を教え、台湾の言語(台湾および北京語)の処理に関するトピックをすべてPython言語を使用して研究しています。

Completed profile
Renyuan Lyu got his doctorate degree from Graduate Institute of Electrical Engineering, National Taiwan University in his 20’s. After that, he became a faculty member of Chung Gung University, Taoyuan, Taiwan, specializing in audio, speech, language, and pattern processing. In his early working years, he used C/C++, Matlab, Perl to do academic research and teaching activity, creating the first several Mandarin and Taiwanese speech recognition systems.

As time passed by and the age increased, he found both physical and mental strength seemed to be declining little by little, he also noticed that it was getting harder to use the programming language mentioned above to code and do research efficiently. It was until 2011, he discovered Python. He re-trained himself and then rekindled his passion for coding. Through the process, he constantly found the beauty of Python, and gradually replaced all the other programming languages for teaching and doing research. He had also received a grant from Taiwan’s Ministry of Science and Technology for a two-year project on creating a Hanzi (Chinese character) programming environment for the Python programming language, and later he published the results of this project in Pycon JP 2017.

By the way, he started participating in the Pycon APAC event in 2014 and delivered a speech. Subsequently, he participated in Pycon JP for three consecutive years from 2015 to 2017 and delivered oral speeches, presented posters, participated in lightning talks. Especially in the lightning talk in 2017 when he applied Python to transcribe the singing voice of a Karaoke-style singing, he was greatly acclaimed and made many friends after the talking.
Because of his enthusiasm for Python, he began to influence his students, children and even his children’s classmates to learn Python. When his child was in middle school, he used to be a programming teacher for them in a specially educated (advanced) learning club. While his child was in high school, he also coached him to do a Python-based programming project.

He is currently an university’s associate professor, teaching probability statistics, signal processing, pattern recognition, and speech recognition, studying topics related to Taiwanese languages (Taiwanese and Mandarin Chinese) processing, all using the Python language.
