About Tsuruoka Laboratory

Tsuruoka laboratory is afficliated with University of Tokyo, Information and Communication Engineering department under the Information Science and Technology graduate school.

The two main topics covered in the laboratory consist of Natural Language Processing and Game AI, however other topics are permitted and exploring topics the students care about is encouraged.

We like having a multi-cultural lab enviroment and have lab members and staff from different countries including Japan, China, Latvia, Thailand, Tunisia and hopefully more in the future!

Yasui Go

My research interests are language generation and application of reinforcement learning in NLP. More specifically, I am interested in evaluating the model output using setting-specific criteria that are not always differentiable. My favourite vegetable is tomato and my least favourite is bitter melon.

李 凌寒

Ri Ryokan

NLP enthusiast. My research interest is multilingual NLP and word/sentence embedding, specifically, how we can obtain language agnostic meaning representation. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking; I’ve recently been struggling with Mabo-Dofu.
