About Me

I am a post-doctoral researcher of TSAIL Group in Department of Computer Science and Technology in the Tsinghua University. I work with Prof. Bo Zhang and Prof. Jun Zhu.

I also work at RealAI as a research scientist and co-founder. At RealAI, we are focusing on the next generation AI technology with interpretability, robustness, safety and reliability. We are intelligentizing the fantastic economies, especially the industry and financing fields. We are hiring! Join us to make a better world with RealAI.

Before that, I received the Ph.D degree from the Department of Computer Science and Technology at Tsinghua University in 2018 and the B. Sc. degree from the Department of Applied Mathematics at Xidian University in 2013.

My research interests include machine learning, large-scale inference and their applications in natural language processing.

SAM: Semantic Attribute Modulated Language Modeling
We build an improved RNN-based language model with well-designed semantic attributes. This further motivates us to generate texts with different attribute combinations, with an interesting lyric generation experiment result.

基于图的半监督学习理论与应用 (Graph-based Semi-supervised Learning:Theory and Applications)
We review the graph-based semi-supervised learning.

Semi-supervised Max-margin Topic Models with Manifold Posterior Regularization
We introduce the manifold posterior regularization to the max-margin topic model and present a semi-supervised topic model. With much less document labels, we still learn nice document representation and predict document labels.

Big learning with Bayesian Methods
We extensively review the recent advances of large-scale Bayesian learning.

Fast Sampling for Bayesian Max-Margin Models
We build a stochastic subgradient MCMC methods for the fast inference of max-margin-regularized posteriors. Experimental results on several Bayesian max-margin models shows that our method is accurate and fast.
