We hosted a fantastic tutorial on Knowledge-infused Deep Learning (KiDL) at the 31st ACM Hypertext Conference on July 15. Broadly, the tutorial covered many ...
🚨At UMBC CSEE, I will be starting a reading+research group: Knowledge-infused AI and Inference( KAI2)(website Coming Soon). Please drop me an email if you would like join!!
Research InterestsI have broad interests in knowledge graphs and machine learning (in particular deep learning) for application into natural language processing, recommender systems, and computational social data science. My research is mostly directed towards:
- Knowledge-infused Learning: is a class of Neuro-Symbolic AI techniques that utilize a variety of knowledge (lexical, linguistic, domain specific, commonsense, process knowledge and constraint-based) in different forms and abstractions into deep neural network. It improves upon data-centric statistical learning to reduce training, reduce computing needs, and broaden coverage, resulting in improved performance, safety and model interpretation, and providing user-level explanations.
- Knowledge Intensive Language Understanding: is a new unified benchmark to help AI researchers build models that are better able to leverage real-world knowledge to accomplish a broad range of tasks. Models that are better able to leverage real-world knowledge do well in tasks o
Prospective Students:I am actively looking for skilled and self-motivated student to join my group! If you are interested in working with me, please apply through the UMBC PhD program and mention me in your application.
- If you are already a graduate student at UMBC, feel free to reach out.
- I am also accepting undergraduate students for senior thesis advising or independent work. I also recommend you take CMSC 678 (or at least one of Machine Learning or NLP or Knowledge Graph classes) before getting into knowledge-infused learning research.
I also have weekly Open Session for UMBC and Prospective students (undergraduate and graduate). If you would like to discuss any topic with me, feel free to sign up for them (15-minute each; Multiple booking is also possible.)
