    Speaker: Rui Yan, Peking Univ

    Talk Title: Recent Advances and Challenges on Human-Computer Conversational Systems

    Series: Natural Language Seminar

    Abstract: Automatic human-computer conversational systems have attracted great attention from both industry and academia. Intelligent products such as XiaoIce by Microsoft have been released, while tons of Artificial Intelligence companies have been established. We see that the technology behind the conversational systems is accumulating and now open to the public gradually. With the investigation of researchers, conversational systems are more than scientific fictions: they become real. I would review the recent development of human-computer conversational systems, especially the significant changes brought by deep learning techniques. In the meanwhile, I would share some work conducted by our group.

    Biography: Dr. Rui Yan is an assistant professor at Peking University, an adjunct professor in Central China Normal University and Central University of Finance and Economics, and he was a Senior Researcher at Baidu Inc. He has investigated several open-domain conversational systems and dialog systems in vertical domains. Till now he has published more than 50 highly competitive peer reviewed papers. He serves as a senior program committee member of several top-tier venues such as KDD, SIGIR, ACL, WWW, IJCAI, AAAI, CIKM, EMNLP.
