- Stochastic modeling of natural language, including statistical parsing, clustering, summarization, machine translation, question answering, information retrieval.
- Statistical machine learning methods, especially unsupervised, semi-supervised and discriminative learning techniques.
- I will give an invited talk on the topic of "Learning with Big Data" at the Lisbon Machine Learning School, taking place from July 24-31. The school covers a range of ML Topics, from theory to practice, that are important in solving NLP problems that arise in the analysis and use of Web data.
- Members of the project Cross-language Learning-to-Rank for Patent Retrieval successfully participated in the NTCIR-10 PatentMT shared task. On the constrained track, which used only resources provided by the organizers, our system, titled "HDU", ranked 2nd for Japanese-to-English and 3rd for Chinese-to-English patent translation with respect to automatic evaluation. For a detailed system description, see our paper in the list of accepted papers for 2013
- We released a German-English parallel patent corpus of 23 million sentences. For more information and download, please see the PatTR page.
