Congratulations to Chengyao Chen and Ziqiang Cao! Congratulations also goes to Su Hui in our team who (collaborated with his friend and) got one main conference paper and two student poster papers accepted.

[September 2, 2017]: DailyDialog: A Manually Labelled Multi-turn Dialogue Dataset, the work collaborated by Yanran Li and Hui Su is accepted by IJCNLP2017. Hui Su also got his paper, Wake-Sleep Variational Autoencoders for Language Modeling, published in ICONLP2017.

[August 7, 2017]: Alternating Pointwise-Pairwise Learning for Personalized Item Ranking by Yu Lei, Modeling Opinion Influence with User Dual Identity by Chengyao Chen and Modeling Language Discrepancy for Cross-Lingual Sentiment Analysis by Qiang Chen are accepted by CIKM2017. It is the first time to achieve a 100% acceptance rate.

[July 26, 2017]: Yanran Li is selected as a scholarship recipient of the 2017 Women Techmakers Scholars Program!

[April 12, 2017]: We have one more good news in April. Neural Network based Reinforcement Learning for Real-time Pushing on Text Stream by Haihui Tan/Ziyu Lv, and Predictive Network Representation Learning for Link Prediction by Zhitao Wang have been accepted by SIGIR2017.

[April 1, 2017]: I am happy to share with you that two papers (A Conditional Variational Framework for Dialog Generation and Determining Gains Acquired from Word Embedding Quantitatively using Discrete Distribution Clustering), co-authored by Yanran Li, have been accepted by ACL2017.

[February 7, 2017]: The Year-1 PhD student Yanran Li has her co-authored paper Mode Regularized Generative Adversarial Networks accepted by ICLR2017.

[December 3, 2016]: Two former RAs in group have their papers accepted by ECIR2017, i.e., Cross-lingual Sentiment Relation Capturing for Cross-lingual Sentiment Analysis, A Part-of-Speech Enhanced Neural Conversation Model.

[November 25, 2016]: We participated in the competition in TREC Temporal Summarization Track. In both tasks, the system developed by Haihui Tan achieved top performance.

[November 12, 2016]: Two papers were accepted by AAAI2017: Improving Multi-Document Summarization via Text Classification and Joint Copying and Restricted Generation for Paraphrase, both submitted by Ziqiang Cao.

[September 30, 2016]: Ziqiang Cao won the 2016 Microsoft Research Asia PhD Fellowship Award!

http://www.comp.polyu.edu.hk/img/imagecache/220x147_4O6A4741.jpg[September 21, 2016]: Two papers were accepted by COLING2015: AttSum: Joint Learning of Focusing and Summarization with Neural Attention, done by Ziqiang Cao and Content-based Social Influence Model on User Opinion Behavior Prediction, done by Chengyao Chen. See you in Osaka!

[August 27, 2016]: Lei Yu's Social Collaborative Filtering by Trust was finally accepted by IEEE Transactions on Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (TPAMI). Let's applaud for his perseverance and dedication.

[August 8, 2016]: The work of Exploring Interpersonal Influence through Tracking User Dynamic Interaction, done by Chengyao Chen, was accepted by IEEE Intelligent Systems recently.

[July 30, 2016]: Attention-based LSTM Network for Cross-Lingual Sentiment Classification, by Xinjie Zhou, an exchange student from Peking University, was accepted by EMNLP2016.

[July 20, 2016]: Ali Popular Music Prediction competition was completed. Yu Lei's Morning Summer ranks 39th among 5476 participants.

[July 4, 2016]: Ziqiang Cao participated the Scientific Summarization Task and got the second best performance.
