  • Qualcomm Office Hours

    Thu, Oct 24, 2019 @ 10:00 AM - 01:00 PM

    Viterbi School of Engineering Career Connections

    Workshops & Infosessions


    Qualcomm "Office Hours" for Electrical Engineering Majors from 10 am - 1 pm* RSVP to let us know what time you plan on stopping by.

    Meet engineers who are bringing 5G to life!

    Qualcomm's RFIC Engineers from DTECH, Digital Circuits, PDN & SIPI will be on campus to meet with Viterbi's Electrical Engineering students interested in Summer 2020 internships! Bring copies of your resume.

    *Students will be met with on a first come-first-served basis. If we reach capacity for the room, you may have to wait outside until our engineers have finished meeting with the students in the room before they can meet with you.*

  • NL Seminar-Neural Unsupervised Dependency Parsing

    Thu, Oct 24, 2019 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Wenjuan Han , ShanghaiTech University/UCLA

    Talk Title: Neural Unsupervised Dependency Parsing

    Series: Natural Language Seminar

    Abstract: Dependency parsing, as an essential task in Natural Language Processing, is a key step in analyzing and understanding texts. Most of the previous work on unsupervised dependency parsing is based on generative models. In order to effectively induce a grammar, various knowledge priors and inductive biases are manually encoded in the learning process. However, these knowledge priors and inductive biases are mostly local features that can only be defined by experts. Another disadvantage of generative models comes from the context freeness, which limits the information available to dependencies in a sentence. We proposed several approaches to unsupervised dependency parsing that automatically capture useful information: correlations between tokens, context information and multilingual similarity.


    Biography: I am now a visiting student in UCLA and expected to graduate in January 2020. I will get the PHD Degree at ShanghaiTech University, where I was advised by Kewei Tu. I did my bachelors at the Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications. My current research focuses on the study of probabilistic neural models and follows two researching paths. 1. grammar based representation, inference, and unsupervised learning; and 2. the application of unsupervised learning approaches with hidden variables in a variety of artificial intelligence areas including grammar induction, POS induction and perceptual grouping.
