Meet Dimmy Wang who presented his work at the Deep Learning Workshop at IJCAI 2019. He graduated with a Masters from Tshinghua University and currently works as a researcher at Tencent Cloud AI.

 

Interviewer: What are you presenting at IJCAI?

A part-of-speech tagger for Chinese and English mixed sentences.

Interviewer: What does a part of speech tagger mean?

It means that the machine can pick out nouns, pronouns, adverbs, etc. from a given sentence, which further helps the machine understand the meaning of natural language.

Interviewer: What is the impact of this research?

Identifying parts of speech has been a large research area in computer science. However, most efforts are focussed on identifying parts of speech in sentences of a particular language. This is not enough as, in this rapidly globalizing world, cultures mix and people tend to use multiple languages at once to express themselves online. For example, on Weibo (a popular Chinese social media platform similar to Twitter), one might post “我的老师太push了” (my teacher is too strict). Notice part of the expression is in english. With our research, we are now a step closer to making sense of this sentence, and the word, as it expresses itself online!
