During my internship, I participated in the project named as "time-sensitive query detection". My responsibility was mining time-sensitive verbs from query log to provide information when detecting time-sensitive queries. And I also took part in the development of the Baidu's knowledge graph, which is known as "Baidu - Zhixin".
We search on the ellipsis phenomenon in Chinese dialogues. My responsibility was detecting the zero pronouns (ZP) in sentences and resolving them into certain entities. To minimize the error accumulation when conducting these two steps in a sequential process, I propose a joint model approach, performs the ZP identification and resolution simultaneously in a unified framework.
I was in charge of a domain-specific FAQ system for ZTE customer service robot, from scratch, including designing architecture, developing retrieval algorithm and designing user interface. I also integrate the coreference resolution module to expend and complement input questions. Our project won the ZTE outstanding project award within 300 projects.
We develop a chatting robot in the platform of WeChat (an instant messaging service application). I contributed to the question understanding engine by building a overt pronoun resolver.
Thesis Topic: Coreference resolution
