Baosong Yang

I am currently an Algorithm Expert in the Language Technology Lab at Alibaba DAMO Academy. I received my Ph.D at NLP2CT Lab of University of Macau, advised by Prof. Derek F. Wong. I have studied and practiced in a broad field of natural language processing (NLP) such as Chinese word segmentation, named entity, semantic role labeling, question answering system, machine translation. My current research focuses on deep learning for NLP, including neural machine translation (NMT), cross-lingual language model (XLM), cross-lingual information retrieval (CLIR). I have published over 50 papers in leading NLP/AI journals and conferences such as ACL, EMNLP, AAAI, and NAACL.

We have some research intern positions available in Alibaba DAMO Academy. If you are interested in NLP and ML, please feel free to contact us: nlp2ct.baosong[AT]
