Hi, human / crawler!
I am Yuning Mao , a fourth-year Ph.D student in Prof. Jiawei Han's Data Mining Group, Dept. of Computer Science, University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign (UIUC). I graduated from the IEEE Honored Class, Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU).
My research centers on helping humans to acquire information and knowledge from unstructured texts more effectively and efficiently via natural language processing, machine learning, and data mining. I have experience in topics such as text summarization, question answering, semantic matching, taxonomy construction, hierarchical classification, and knowledge graph reasoning.
You can find some fun facts about me here, most of which are not in my CV (cuz I update it mainly for fun:)
[2020-10] Check out how to use constrained generation to preserve the factual consistency of abstractive summarization without worsening ROUGE [arXiv] .
[2020-09] Check out how we achieve SOTA on Natural Questions and TriviaQA using "BM25" [arXiv] .
[2020-09] Two papers on multi-document summarization and knowledge graph reasoning are accepted to EMNLP 2020.
[2020-05] Two papers on self-supervised taxonomy enrichment and knowledge collection of product knowledge graph are accepted to KDD 2020.
[2020-04] Our new metric for summarization, FAR (facet-aware evaluation) along with a detailed analysis of CNN/Daily Mail, has been accepted to ACL 2020.

I enjoy coding to facilitate my (and others') life. I love both engineering work (if it's fun) and research-oriented projects. My interests lie in data mining, NLP, and broad AI. I write 🐍 cuz life is short.To my Github
I love all kinds of creatures in various sizes. Since I was a child, I have kept 🐕, 🐈, 🐓, 🦆, 🕊, 🐌, 🐛, 🕷, 🐟, 🐢, 🌸, 🌱(🍆🌶🥒...🌽🍅🍠) ... I like insects, not "bugs". I am a "professional" 🐜 keeper!To my Ants
