Welcome to HKU NLP group! We are a group of researchers working on natural language processing in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Hong Kong.
The current focus of the NLP group in HKU includes:
• Pretraining algorithms, including novel objectives, neural network architectures and distillation methods;
• Semantic parsing, natural language interfaces, human-computer interaction (HCI);
• Dialog systems, long text generation and automatic evaluation;
• Machine Translation, especially in the settings of simultaneous and multimodal MT.

|Tianbao Xie, Ph.D. student||dialog systems, spoken language understanding, pre-trained models, semantic parsing||Although with repeated experience of setbacks, I have encountered many difficulties and overcome many difficulties, which make me gradually believe that everything will get better if I insist on it again. However, sometimes I am still moved by these sudden luck and objectively reflect on everything I need to reach this step. Every now and then, I appreciate life, appreciate for its small blessings.||Python|
