Yisong Miao’s Personal Website


Welcome! I’m a second-year master student at SoC(School of Computing), NUS(National University of Singapore).
I’m affiliated to WING (Web Information Retrieval and Natural Language Processing Group).
I’m fortunate to be advised by Prof Min-Yen Kan and Dr. Wenqiang Lei.
My office is on level 5 of AS6 building.

My long-term goal is to push the research boundary of interaction between AI and humanity (including history, literature, music and other forms of arts), and answer a basic question: how we human perceive beauty. To achieve this long-term goal, I not only conduct novel research as introduced in the next section, but also initiate UCMW project purely out of my personal interest.

I have maintained a few reading list within my research interest: Link

I also have a bucketlist of 101 things to do before death: Link
