    Relational Gating for "What If" Reasoning.

    1. The research deals with the challenge of learning and reasoning over multi-hop "What If" question answering (QA).
    2. We propose entity gating and relational gating mechanism to capture the most important entities and relationships involved in qualitative comparison, causal reasoning and multi-hop reasoning.
    3. We propose a contextual interaction module to effectively and efficiently align the question and paragraph entities.
    4. Our proposed approach shows competitive performance on the WIQA benchmark.
    5. The paper published in IJCAI 2021.
    6. Paper name: Relational Gating for "What If" Reasoning.


    SRLGRN: Semantic Role Labeling Graph Reasoning Network.

    1. The research deals with the challenge of learning and reasoning over multi-hop question answering (QA).
    2. We build a heterogeneous semantic role labeling graphs.
    3. We propose a graph reasoning network based on the semantic structure of the sentences.
    4. The model learns cross paragraph reasoning paths and find the supporting facts and the answer jointly.
    5. Our proposed approach shows competitive performance on the HotpotQA distractor setting benchmark.
    6. The paper published in EMNLP 2020.
    7. Paper name: SRLGRN: Semantic Role Labeling Graph Reasoning Network.


    Cross-Modality Relevance for Reasoning on Language and Vision.

    1. Designing a novel cross-modality relevance model to learn the relevance representation between components of various input modalities.
    2. The model includes the higher-order relevance between entity relations in the text and object relations in the image.
    3. Dataset: NLVR2 and VQA.
    4. Competitive performance on above two language and vision tasks.
    5. The paper published in ACL 2020.
    6. Paper name: Cross-Modality Relevance for Reasoning on Language and Vision.


    Internship in Big Data and Information Retrieval group, JD Inc.

    1. Our IR team presented a novel approach called DPSR, which stands for Deep Personalized and Semantic Retrieval.
    2. During the internship, I helped the team design and implement the item module of the DPSR retrieval system at the early stage of this project.
    3. Dataset: The DPSR model is trained on a data set of 60 days JD user click logs, which contains 5.6 billion sessions.
    4. State-of-the-art performance in Offline test (Top-K and AUC) and Online A/B test (UCVR, GMV, QRR).
    5. The paper published in SIGIR 2020. My name appears in Acknowledgement section.
    6. Paper name: Towards Personalized and Semantic Retrieval: An End-to-End Solution for E-commerce Search via Embedding Learning.
