王 瑞 (Wang, Rui)
Tenure-track Researcher (研究员)
Advanced Translation Technology Laboratory, NICT, Kyoto, Japan.
I am a tenure-track researcher at NICT, working with Dr. Masao Utiyama and Dr. Eiichiro Sumita. Before that, I obtained my Ph.D. degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2016, supervised by Prof. Bao-Liang Lu and Prof. Hai Zhao. I was also a joint Ph.D. student (Le programme Cai Yuanpei from 2013 to 2015) in CNRS-University Lyon1, supervised by Prof. Sabine Ploux. I obtained my master and bachelor degree from University of Chinese Academy of Sciences and Harbin Institute of Technology in 2012 and 2009, respectively.
My research focuses on machine translation, a classic task in NLP (or even in AI). I (as the first or the corresponding authors) have published more than 20 MT papers in top-tier NLP conferences and journals, such as ACL, EMNLP, COLING, AAAI, IJCAI, TASLP, TALLIP, etc. I have also won the first places on several language pairs of WMT shared tasks, such as the unsupervised Czech<->German task in 2019 and the supervised Finnish/Estonian<->English tasks in 2018. I servered as the area co-chairs of CCL-2018/2019 and the organization co-chairs of PACLIC-29 and YCCL-2012.
On September 27th, Chenhui and I will give a tutorial on "Domain Adaptation of NMT" in CCMT-2019 (CWMT before)
On August 13th, Kehai's one EMNLP paper and one TASLP paper were accepted.
On August 12th, Zuchao representing SJTU-NICT won the first place in the DM sub-task and the 2nd overall in the CoNLL-2019 shared tasks link.
On May 14th, four NMT papers were accepted by ACL-2019.
On April 16th, we (with Haipeng, Benjamin, and Kehai) won the first place in WMT-2019 unsupervised MT task (German-Czech) by BLEU link.
On April 1st, I received two research funds (from JSPS and NICT) as PI.
