Hi, I am Yan Shao (Chinese: 邵研 Pinyin: Shào Yán). I obtained my doctoral degree in computational linguistics at Uppsala University, Sweden. Recently, I joined the Alibaba Group in Hangzhou, China.
My research interests include:
- Deep Learning
- Sequence processing
- Automatic summarisation
- Machine translation
- Syntactic parsing
- Cross-lingual information retrieval
I took part in teaching the following course:
I am eager to see the world. I spend a lot of time (and money :D) travelling in different places.
I am a big fan of music. Apart from meeting and drinking beers with my friends, I spend most of my leisure time to play guitar.
I am not a big fan of doing sports, but I force myself into the gym a couple of times every week just for a healthy life.
I used to be quite addicted to DOTA. Now I don’t play so much, but I still follow the updates and watch the professional events.
