I am Philip! Currently I am a Ph.D candidate at Nara Institute of Science and Technology (NAIST). My research interest is Statistical Machine Translation (SMT). My supervisors are Prof. Satoshi Nakamura and Prof. Graham Neubig.
When pursuing my master degree, I was interested in using SMT framework in general to accomplish other natural language processing tasks. For example one can define Semantic Parsing tasks as task to translate natural language inputs to meaning representations. I used paraphrases as a verification to improve the semantic parsers in interpreting underspecified inputs. (Arthur et al., 2015).
Currently I am working to improve Neural Machine Translation. I wrote my own implementation of NMT that is mature enough to be used as is.
I like Computer Science related stuffs. I like developing software and learning more programming languages. My non-geek related hobbies are travelling and playing video games.
