Portrait of Bo-June (Paul) Hsu

Bo-June (Paul) Hsu



I first joined Microsoft in 2000 as a software design engineer in the speech recognition product group.  Intrigued by the challenges of bringing cutting edge technology from research to consumer products, I moved to MIT in 2004 to pursue a Ph.D. in speech recognition and natural language processing and learn about technology transfer challenges from a research perspective.  Since returning to Microsoft in 2009 as a researcher in the Internet Services Research Center, I have been working with various product groups in Bing to improve the overall user experience through research technologies.





Some of my recent contributions include:

  • Compact and efficient system for generating query completions
  • Structured query completion suggestion for disambiguation and refinement
  • Robust conversion and completion for Chinese pinyin queries
  • Compact web-scale n-grams for efficient word breaking

Research Interests
