Biography & Research Abstract


For the REU this summer, I have been working as a research intern at the IDEA Lab guided by my graduate mentor Mr. Lihui Liu and faculty mentor Prof. Hanghang Tong. Currently, the application of machine learning in many domains, such as healthcare and biology, suffers a lot from the lack of labeled data, and it could be time-consuming and requires the manual work of a domain expert to collect sufficient amout of labeled data. In order to solve this problem, The research project I am working on is active learning on knowledge graph question answering, which is a promising way to train the model more efficiently with significant lower cost.


My name is Ke Xu, and I am a junior undergraduate majoring in Electrical Engineering, minoring in Computer Science from a dual-degree program jointly held by University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Zhejiang University. My research interest lies in machine learning and data mining.
