Thank you to D-INFK@ETH to conduct an interview that allows me to articulate my vision for the future! You can find it here.
I am joining ETH Zurich as a tenure-track assistant professor in computer science.
With indispensable help from many collaborators, my PhD thesis produced DeepDive, a trained system for automatic knowledge base construction. DeepDive has been used to achieve human-level quality in a range of applications, such as paleontology, anti-human trafficking, and genomics etc. DeepDive is being commercialized as Lattice.
I would like to thank my advisor, Chris. I owe Chris my career as a researcher. Since the day I first met Chris and told him about my dream, he has done everything he could, as a scientist, an educator, and a friend to help me.
I spent three years working with Bin Cui at Peking University as an undergraduate student. My research focused on managing user-generated content on social media. For a summary our work, see my B.Sc. dissertation (in Chinese) or the SIGIR 2010 and SIGMOD 2010 paper.
I would like to thank my advisor, Bin. The training I received from his group helped me realize that doing research is exciting and fun and that data management is awesome.
