Yeda Song

Hi! I'm an incoming CS PhD student at the University of Michigan, starting in Fall 2024. I received my M.S. in Artificial Intelligence at Seoul National University, under the supervision of Gunhee Kim.

My research interest lies in deep reinforcement learning (RL), particularly in devising intelligent agents capable of solving novel tasks. I believe such a goal can be achieved by learning proper abstractions, utilizing language models, and taking model-based approaches.

Compositional Conservatism: A Transductive Approach in Offline Reinforcement Learning
Yeda Song*, Dongwook Lee*, Gunhee Kim
ICLR, 2024
CODE / arXiv

We propose COCOA, a novel approach for addressing distributional shifts in offline RL (batch RL). COCOA encourages conservatism within the compositional input space of both the policy and Q-function, independently of the commonly employed behavioral conservatism.

MPChat: Towards Multimodal Persona-Grounded Conversation
Jaewoo Ahn, Yeda Song, Sangdoo Yun, Gunhee Kim
ACL, 2023
CODE / arXiv

We construct a multimodal persona-grounded dialogue dataset, MPChat, accompanied with entailment labels. The multimodal persona consists of image-text pairs that represent one's episodic memories. We show the role of visual modality is crucial in MPChat through three benchmark tasks.
