Congratulations to the amazing PhD students Zhenhailong Wang, Ansel Blume and Zoey Li for getting their paper PAXION accepted by NeurIPS2023 as a spotlight!
It has been a blessing to be able to work with Prof. Jiawei Han's PhD student Zoey Li. She is beyond amazing and perfect in all aspects. She is looking for a research position in the industry right now. Please interview her!
My former PhD student Dr. Manling Li is becoming a tenure-track assistant professor at Northwestern University and now recruiting several new PhD students and postdocs to start in Fall 2024. She is an extremely knowledgable, kind and hands-on mentor.
I have many positions for post-docs, PhD/master RAs, hourly paid master/undergraduate RAs, summer interns, software engineers and project managers available to work on multimodal knowledge representation and extraction, knowledge discovery and information extraction on news domain and scientific domain, and knowledge-empowered large language models, students please fill in this survey if interested.
Carl Edwards and I are very happy about having contributed to this 263 pages survey on AI for Science led by Prof. Shuiwang Ji (TAMU).
We are very excited to kick off our DARPA ECOLE project, and extremely proud of this super young and diverse group of PIs for our MIRACLE team that I have put up together with Carl Vondrick.
I'm super honored to be selected as a Young Scientist to attend the 6th World Laureates Association Forum.
Upcoming keynote speeches and invited talks: ``Large Neural Models' Self-Learning Symbolic Knowledge'' at Distinguished Lecture Series at Columbia University, and Washington Univeristy in St. Louis.
The event extraction community has been stuck in using an 18 years old ACE data set with only 33 event types. It’s time to move on … we have developed a new dataset with 3,465 event types and 208K sentences, along with a high performing new system to extract them.
Check out this paper on General-Purpose Event Detection, led by the beyond amazing UIUC PhD student Zoey Li (she is on job market).
I was asked by our college of engineering to share experiences on seeking and securing funding. I’m sharing some slides publicly in case they are useful for young PIs.
