My research interests fall in the general area of and applications of natural language processing (NLP), especially the recent developments in transfer learning, common sense reasoning, representation learning to work towards the goal of the combination of language understanding and generation. In May 2017, our proposed model (MEMEN) achieved the second place on the leaderboard of the Stanford Question Answering Dataset (SQuAD).
• Our paper "Discriminate and Reconstruct: Learning from Language Model to Answer Keyword Questions" got accepted in CCHI 2019 (oral), Xi'an, China.
• I'm excited to join the Alibaba DAMO Academy as a research intern!
• Our paper "Reinforced Dynamic Reasoning for Conversational Question Generation" got accepted in ACL 2019, Florence, Italy.
• I am excited to visit the Ohio State University and work with Prof. Huan Sun!
• Our work in NeurIPS 2018 was invited to have a talk on the 16th China Symposium on Machine Learning Applications (MLA 2018), Nanjing, China.
• Our paper "MacNet: Transferring Knowledge from Machine Comprehension to Sequence-to-Sequence Models" got accepted in NeurIPS 2018, Montreal, Canada.
• Our work in ACL 2018 was invited to present on The Third SFU-ZJU Joint Symposium on Big Data and Visual Computing, Hangzhou, China.
• Our paper "Discourse Marker Augmented Network with Reinforcement Learning for Natural Language Inference" got accepted in ACL 2018 (oral), Melbourne, Australia.
• Our Model "MEMEN" achieved the second place on the SQuAD leaderboard!
• Our paper "Robust Asymmetric Bayesian Adaptive Matrix Factorization" got accepted in IJCAI 2017, Melbourne, Australia.
