  • [2018.11]: The code for our CIKM paper on weakly-supervised text classification is released. If you want to use deep neural nets to do text classification but don’t have much labeled data, try it out!
  • [2018.11]: Our paper on weakly-supervised hierarchical text classification is accepted by AAAI’19.
  • [2018.10]: Our paper on linear-time trajectory similarity computation is accepted by ICDE’19. It’s up to 100x faster than state-of-the-art trajectory similarity computation techniques and supports all major measures! Code will be out soon.
  • [2018.08]: One paper on weakly-supervised text classification is accepted by CIKM’18. No need for excessive training data but just a few seeds. Congrats Yu!
