    PhD Dissertation Defense - Wenxuan Zhou

    Title: Robust and Generalizable Knowledge Acquisition from Text

    Committee members: Muhao Chen (chair), Laurent Itti, Tianshun Sun, Robin Jia, Jonathan May

    Abstract: With large amounts of digital text generated every day, it is important to acquire structured knowledge automatically from the text. In my thesis, I will present my work during my Ph.D. from two perspectives: (1) Improving the robustness of knowledge acquisition, especially against bias from training corpus; and (2) building data-efficient knowledge acquisition models in low-resource scenarios, which is important for tasks in high-stake domains. After these, I will discuss challenges and future directions for both (1) and (2).
