Jianfeng Gao

Partner Research Manager in Deep Learning Technology Center (DLTC) at Microsoft Research, Redmond. I work on deep learning for text and image processing (see our JICAI2016 Tutorial or MS internal site) and lead the development of AI systems for dialogue, machine reading comprehension (MRC), question answering (QA), and enterprise applications.

We are hiring Researchers with strengths in ML and NLP, and Software Engineers with rich product experience.

DSSM: We have developed a series of deep semantic similarity models (DSSM, also a.k.a. Sent2Vec), which have been used for many text and image processing tasks, including web search [Huang et al. 2013, Shen et al. 2014], recommendation [Gao et al. 2014a], machine translation [Gao et al. 2014b], and QA with knowledge base [Yih et al. 2015].

MRC: We released a new MRC dataset, called MS MARCO; and have developed a series of reasoning networks for MRC, aka ReasoNet and ReasoNet with shared memory.

Dialogue: We have developed neural network models for social bots trained on Twitter data [project site] and task-completion bots [Lipton et al. 2016; Bhuwan et al. 2016] trained via reinforcement learning using a user simulator.

From 2006 to 2014, I was Principal Researcher at Natural Language Processing Group at Microsoft Research, Redmond. I worked on Web search, query understanding and reformulation, ads prediction, and statistical machine translation. From 2005 to 2006, I was a research lead in Natural Interactive Services Division at Microsoft. I worked on Project X, an effort of developing natural user interface for Windows. From 1999 to 2005, I was Research Lead in Natural Language Computing Group at Microsoft Research Asia. I, together with my colleagues, developed the first Chinese speech recognition system released with Microsoft Office, the Chinese/Japanese Input Method Editors (IME) which were the leading products in the market, and the natural language platform for Windows Vista.

Currently, I live with my family in Woodinville, WA.
