Distinguished Research Fellow of the Institute of Information Science, Academia Sinica
Topic:Biological Literature Mining with Various Machine Learning Techniques
 
Introduction:
Wen-Lian Hsu is currently a Distinguished Research Fellow of the Institute of Information Science, Academia Sinica, Taiwan. He received a B.S. in Mathematics from National Taiwan University, and a Ph.D. in operations research from Cornell University in 1980. He was a tenured associate professor in Northwestern University before joining the Institute of Information Science in Academia Sinica as a research fellow in 1989. Dr. Hsu's earlier contribution was on graph algorithms and he has applied similar techniques to tackle computational problems in biology and natural language. In 1993, he developed a Chinese input software, GOING, which has since revolutionized Chinese input on computer. He later applied similar semantic analysis techniques to question answering system and chatbot. Dr. Hsu is particularly interested in applying natural language processing techniques to understanding DNA sequences as well as protein sequences, structures and functions and also to biological literature mining. Dr. Hsu received the Outstanding Research Award from the National Science Council in 1991, 1994, 1996, the first K. T. Li Research Breakthrough Award in 1999, the IEEE Fellow in 2006, and the Teco Award in 2008. He was the president of the Artificial Intelligence Society in Taiwan from 2001 to 2002 and the president of the Computational Linguistic Society of Taiwan from 2011 to 2012.
