  • PhD Thesis Proposal - Rujun Han

    Fri, Sep 10, 2021 @ 01:00 PM - 02:30 PM

    Computer Science

    University Calendar


    Name: Rujun Han


    Time: 2-3:30pm, Sep 10th


    Committee Members: Nanyun Peng (Chair), Aram Galstyan, Shrikanth Narayanan, Aiichiro Nakano, Xiang Ren


    Title: Event-centric Reasoning in NLP with IE, QA, and NLG Applications

    Abstract: Stories or narratives are composed based on events. Knowing how these events are connected logically and semantically is crucial for understanding human written texts. In the proposed thesis, we explore and invent algorithms, as well as construct novel datasets to facilitate future investigation and evaluation of automated event-centric reasoning. Specifically, we design structural deep neural networks, adapt continual pretraining methods, and leverage graph attention models to enhance machines' reasoning skills in text data. We then apply these techniques to solve event-centric tasks in information extraction, reading comprehension, question-answering, and natural language generation.

    Information Technology Program (ITP)

    Workshops & Infosessions


    This weekly workshop series will benefit researchers who are interested in or are starting to learn about the application of theoretical methods and techniques for the study of the physics and chemistry of the solid state. These hands-on oriented workshops are targeted towards undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral students who wish to use Density Functional Theory (DFT) methods in their research. The aim is to teach the basics of ab initio atomistic materials simulation using the Quantum Espresso suite of codes for electronic-structure calculations and materials modeling at the nanoscale. Fridays from 4-6 PM PST. Register here!
