NEWS (Nov ‘23): I’m applying to CS/AI PhD programs starting Fall 2024 !!
Hello! I’m Shih-Lun. I’m studying towards M.Sc. of Language Technologies at CMU’s Language Technologies Institute, School of Computer Science, where I’m fortunate to be advised by Prof. Shinji Watanabe and Prof. Chris Donahue. Currently, I’m working on Controllable Music Generation, Audio Captioning, and Spoken Language Understanding. I was a research scientist intern at the Audio AI Lab of Adobe Research for Summer 2023 (mentor: Dr. Nick Bryan), where we built the Music ControlNet.
Prior to joining CMU, I received my B.Sc. degree (in Computer Science) from National Taiwan University. Also, I’ve been with two vibrant Taiwanese AI R&D teams: Asus AICS Center, and Taiwan AI Labs, working as a software dev intern at first, and later as a research engineer.
My undergraduate research focused on Language Model-based Music Generation, where I was advised by the wonderful Dr. Yi-Hsuan Yang. Feel free to listen to our model’s creative works here, or even compose with it! I’ve also worked with Prof. Chung-Wei Lin and Prof. Eunsuk Kang on Formal Verification under Weakly-hard Constraints.
