Canada CIFAR AI Chair
Pan-Canadian AI Strategy
Lili Mou is a Canada CIFAR AI Chair and a fellow at Amii. He is appointed as an assistant professor in the Department of Computing Science at the University of Alberta.
Mou’s is interested in applying deep learning to natural language processing as well as programming language processing. He seeks to build an intelligent system that can understand and interact with humans via natural language, involving both text understanding and text generation. He focuses on fundamental problems in machine learning and deep learning methods applied to natural language processing.
