About Me

Dr. Jing Li is currently a Research Scientist at the Inception Institute of Artificial Intelligence (IIAI), Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Prior to that, he was a Research Fellow in the School of Computer Science and Engineering, Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. He obtained his PhD degree in Computer Science, at NTU, Singapore, under the supervision of Prof. Aixin Sun and Prof. Zhenchang Xing in 2018. He received his B.E. and M.E. in Electrical Engineering from University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC), China, in 2010 and 2013, respectively. His research aims to build up semantic Web systems to support information needs of web users via deep text understanding, information extraction, machine intelligent question answering, knowledge representation, as well as social media analysis.
