Focus on two main research fields, Knowledge Discovery in Database (KDD or Data
Mining) and Natural Language Processing (NLP).
For KDD, its research concerns association rule mining, classification,
clustering, prediction, and other data mining-related fundamental and practical
topics such as the development of decision support systems.
For NLP, its research topics include information retrieval, information
extraction, text classification, word segmentation, speech processing. In both
fields, we stress on the research and development of new basic techniques that
can be applied to various applications. These techniques mainly involve with
several different disciplines, such as machine learning, statistical learning,
database technology, computational linguistics, decision theory, information
theory and data visualization.
