Speakers Profile


Dr. Keh-Yih Su Behavior Design Corporation
2F, No.5, Industry E. Rd. IV,
Science-Based Industrial Park,
Hsinchu, Taiwan 30077, R.O.C.

Dr. Su got his B.S. degree from National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan, in 1976. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Washington, Seattle, USA in 1980 and 1984, respectively. After his graduation, he has been with the National Tsing-Hua University in Taiwan, R.O.C. In 1985, he found an English-to-Chinese Machine Translation Project and was the director for that project. A company, named Behavior Design Corp., was then found in 1988 to transfer the above English-to-Chinese Machine Translation System (called BehaviorTran). Translation service has been provided to the branch offices of those well-known international companies in Taiwan since 1989. From 1989 to 1990, he was a visiting scientist at AT&T Bell Laboratories, NJ. During this period, he focused his attention to the areas of discrimination and robustness oriented speech recognition. Dr. Su quitted from the university, as a professor, to join the Behavior Design Corporation in 1998. Currently, he is the general manager for that company.

Dr. Su has engaged in statistical language model since 1986. In the conference of Machine Translation Summit III in 1991 (Washington D.C., USA), he proposed and presented the Corpus-Based Statistics-Oriented (CBSO) approach for MT, which is the first in its kind for adopting two-way training mechanism to automatically acquire knowledge and avoid the problems induced by those purely statistical approaches (e.g., IBM 1990). He has published over 100 technical papers, and has been the editorial member for several international journals (also the invited speaker for MT-related international conferences). He has been the president for The Association for Computational Linguistics and Chinese Language Processing, Taiwan, and is currently the chair for the Conference Coordination Committee under the Asia Federation of NLP Associations (AFNLP).
