2019, two papers working on multi-turn sentence selection has been accepted by EMNLP 2019 and CIKM 2019.
2019, one paper working on sentence generation has been accepted by ICASSP 2019. [paper]
2018, two papers working on multi-turn response selection and sentence generation have been accepted by DSTC-7 workshop in AAAI 2019.
2017, in addition to commonsense reasoning, I am also working on spoken language understanding, question answering and dialog management.
The undergraduate student I supervised in Canada, Andrew Evdokimov, has got an offer from Google in Mountain View at the Spring of 2017.
We participated and ranked 1st at the Winograd Schema Challenge (see wiki), a recent commonsense reasoning task held in IJCAI 2016, New York City, USA (NYU; MIT Technology Review; Nuance; IEEE Spectrum). Details for describing our Neural Association Model are available at here.
