My research goal is to develop deep learning models for machine cognition, including the capabilities regarding knowledge, memory, and reasoning.
I am working with Professor William W. Cohen and Professor Ruslan Salakhutdinov.
Prior to coming to CMU, I worked with Professor Jie Tang at Tsinghua University.
You can contact me through A@B, where A=zhiliny and B=cs.cmu.edu.
