Automatic Paraphrasing

We, human beings, can transform an expression to different expressions according to the given situations. My major research interest is in the area of such inner-language, meaning preserving translation, viz. paraphrasing (rephrasing, rewording, reforming, etc.). Current and past research projects are as follows:

Machine Translation / Computer-assisted Human Translation

Machine translation has achieved successes, especially in the last decade; however, it still cannot meet the strict requirement for high quality translations in real-world applications. We are working on improving statistical machine translation (SMT) and neural machine translation (NMT) systems from various aspects. Besides, we are also exploring practical means for using SMT/NMT and other NLP technologies to improve productivity of human translation.
