Work Experience
    Internship in Microsoft Research Asia

  • Work in Web Search and Mining Group, tutored by Dr. Haixun Wang
  • Mainly focus on web-scale class-instance-attribute extraction. The whole project is processed on a Map-Reduce engine-COSMOS.
  • This project tries to build a probalistic semantic hierarchy as the determined relationship is hard to choose even by humans.
