Khalid Saifullah


I'm Khalid - an incoming CS Ph.D. student at the University of Maryland, College Park. I take great interest in Deep Learning research. Specifically, I'm interested in self-supervised representation learning and deep generative modeling. I care about making models broadly applicable by ensuring robustness, sample efficiency and interpretability. Other than that, I'm also into visualizations, photography, aaand cinema!

Awards & Community Contributions


  • DALL·E mini: A JAX/FLAX implementation of OpenAI’s DALL·E but ~30 times smaller and trained on a much smaller dataset to meet resource constraints. (source code)
  • GPT-2 Bengali: The very first implementation of GPT-2 for Bengali. Trained from scratch with the Bengali portion of multilingual-c4 dataset.(source code)
  • Bengali Lyricist: A deep generative model that generates Bengali song lyrics. The model is finetuned on the song lyrics dataset from kaggle. (source code)
  • BERTify: A python module that helps with extracting BERT embeddings for large Benglai/English dataset. Especially optimized for users with limited computational access (e.g. free colab/kaggle GPUs) to tackle CUDA OOMs. (source code)
  • DietNeRF: First coding implementation of Putting NeRF on a Diet paper that requires much fewer image samples than original NeRF model to perform 3D reconstruction. (source code)
  • Misogynistic Meme Classifier: As part of AllenNLP Hacks 2021, trained a multimodal model for misogynous meme identification using pretrained CLIP as feature extractor. (source code)
  • sahajBERT: The very first experiment of decentralized collaborative training with an Albert-like model for Bengali. (source code)
  • Path Finder: A web app that helps to visualize the typical graph searching algorithm such as Dijkstra, A*, etc. (source code)
  • 8-Puzzle Solver: The 8-puzzle game with the ability to get it solved by the (A* heuristics based) A.I, made as part of the AI course project. (source code)
  • BOOKy: A website for book lovers to lend and borrow books independently. Made with Django as part of System Analysis and Design course project. (source code)
  • One Step: A website that helps user to create a social cause and also gets people engage in them as volunteers or donators. Made as part of Database Management System course project. (source code)
