For prospective students: e-mails from free webmails (e.g., Gmail) will be automatically regarded as spams, while stereotypical (general-purpose) applications that will fit to other labs can be manually ignored. We can rarely accept students who We yet accept a wide range of students who want to take master's program (or research students preparing for the exam); we cannot reply to most of applications since there are so many requests possibly due to the recent annoying AI boom, though.

Research Interests

We're studying various aspects on natural language processinga (NLP) and computational linguistics (CL), especially

I like to design novel and important NLP tasks [EMNLP-12, ACL-13, COLING-14, IJCAI-16], rather than solving classic tasks on worn-out datasets.

Research Grants

Softwares for NLP/CL

Selected Refereed Publications

More publications

Note that some of the above softwares are no longer experimental codes; they are substantially elaborated from the original codes to have a better performance (2-5x speed-up, or +1% in accuracy etc.; track History section of each software). Those who want to reproduce the experimental results may want to use the oldest release of the softwares.
