Wei-Jen Ko

I am a second year computer science Ph.D. student at the University of Texas at Austin, advised by Professor Jessy Li and Professor Greg Durrett. My research interests are in natural language processing and computer vision. My recent research topics are about neural dialog generation and sentence specificity prediction. I received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from National Taiwan University in 2016.
