Profile picture of X. (Xiyuan) Gao, MA


My research focus on tackling the challenge of figurative language, with a specific emphasis on sarcasm, within the domain of language technology, applying machine-learning-based approaches. I delve into the intricate nuances of linguistic cues associated with sarcasm and employ a multimodal (i.e., text, audio, visual) approach to augment existing state-of-the-art methods. Additionally, my interests extend to other pertinent areas such as low-resource language recognition and synthesis, exploring innovative solutions. Methodologically, I am also engaged in research on data augmentation and transfer learning, aiming to advance the capabilities of language technologies in diverse and resource-constrained contexts."
