Xueyao Zhang (张雪遥)

I'm a master student in the Institute of Computing Technology Chinese Academy of Sciences (ICT). I'm now at Multimedia Computing Group (MCG), supervised by Professor Juan Cao. My research focuses on Fake News Detection and Fact Checking. Besides, I have strong interests in Computer Music, specially in Music Generation and Music Understanding.

Publications
Fake News Detection
Zoom Out and Observe: News Environment Perception for Fake News Detection
Qiang Sheng, Juan Cao, Xueyao Zhang, Rundong Li, Danding Wang, and Yongchun Zhu
Proceedings of the 60th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL 2022)
Preprint / Code
TL;DR: For the first time, we propose to perceive signals from the news environment for fake news detection.
Integrating Pattern- and Fact-based Fake News Detection via Model Preference Learning
Qiang Sheng*, Xueyao Zhang*, Juan Cao, and Lei Zhong (*: Equal Contribution)
Proceedings of the 30th ACM International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM 2021) (Acceptance Rate: 271/1251=21.7%)
PDF / Poster / Code / Chinese Blog
TL;DR: We propose a graph-based model preference learning framework to separately handle the pattern and fact indicators in fake news detection.
Article Reranking by Memory-enhanced Key Sentence Matching for Detecting Previously Fact-checked Claims
Qiang Sheng, Juan Cao, Xueyao Zhang, Xirong Li, and Lei Zhong
Proceedings of the Joint Conference of the 59th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics and the 11th International Joint Conference on Natural Language Processing (ACL-IJCNLP 2021) (Acceptance Rate: 571/2327=24.5%)
PDF / Poster / Code / Chinese Blog
TL;DR: We detect previously fact-checked claims by matching them against the key sentences in fact-checking articles.
