lots of ip
75-85% translation quality (subjective)

machine translation for mobile service: travel expression in real time with limited cpu, memory and storage.

Naoko Tosa (Kyoto U.)

* Computing of Emotion - Romeo and Juliet, cast shakespeare into interactive theatre with gesture, speech and emotion rec 
emotion rec follows basic speech modeling training
script/scenario based dialog / interaction / interruptable / mixed initiative

i.plot - wn + other thes to find freeform word assoc - not really narratives yet, just sentence generation via entropy.

* Cultural Computing - essence of culture (via MIT)
Sesshu - sansui as virt world
kodaiji temple

icon based painting 2 1/2 D vis
painting to classifier to story 

Hitch Haiku - a bit like lin's chinese couplet generator but with more cultural aspects pushed in, less nlp centric

future research: culture synthesis?

Neil Rowe and Brian Frew

zone image using averaging and thresholding, iterative to find optimal number of regions
then use 26 features: color gradient and s.d., size, abs loc to map to feature vec
then use lazy case based reasoning to assign to either 5 or 25 broad classes.

this is interesting: then user neural net to learn "focus" in focus region that corresponds to the caption info
used wordnet to examine nouns, got about 38% right (Baseline random gets 10%)
then incorporated nn foci prediction results into region classification to enhance performance (goes up from 33% to 48%) - basically incorporating simple caption info into it.
errors: human artifacts are easy, but people hard (color varies too much?)
Dipanjan Das, Mohit Kumar and Alexander I. Rudnicky

preprocess with parse tree simplification after srl
two approaches: 
1) also assert-based SRL, ignore freq=1 templates 
2) ROUGE based - use LWCS rules to do pairwise comparison? best result (deterministic clustering): cut score into prec/recall, cluster separately.

q/a: need to create domain specific tagger for this specific dataset - if you need fine-grained tags

using reiter's weather dataset (which is very coherent and generated from machine data)
1. general
2. input
3. output
4. concrete examples links to lit
5. ordering / recipe
Kingman's coalescent as prior p(T)
Bo Wang and Houfeng Wang

associate product features/aspects with opinion words using variant of MI to deal with low-frequency problems.  use iterative process like snowball

q (taras): phone is 3G.  Here 3G is feature as well as opinion.  how to handle?
q: camera looks good, but it's not what we were looking for.  how to handle?
Michiyo Sato

MT as backup system to professional non security based articles, 1st draft as it's quick

when launched got atrocious feedback. but better after mt quality improved.  even good metrics result in bad translation
human computation -> global English.

-schedule of funding for csidm
-30k conference for combined parties (10k per year)

BUT only for CSIDM researcher

20 CASIA researchers / 20 NUS researchers

Direct contribution CSIDM / NUS / Joint
7 space tevan gardens lodge for CSIDM researchers

Research Projects (MDA concern)
* make 100 million chinese communicate with non-chinese
* not just language but communication / mediate

* Integrated projects 1-2yrs later?
* testbed / showcase stuff @ fusionpolis -> think about ways to utilize space, may be replaced, with equipment provided

Co-training proposal
* co-training, should take info from expert not learners.  test on learners, learn from experts only?

3 year target
* 1 spin off
* sing comp using cdism tech - 4
* 300K integration for first 3 years, most in third
* killer app?

5 year target
* 4 spin off in total
* sing comp using cdism tech - 10
Kam Fai Wong

Temporal Info Processing - handling normal verbs via Allen's time framework, but also looking at modal verb events ("I would do X").  Second part for latter for business intelligence.

1. Assessing quality / usefulness

Objective measures about whether the data is pulled out is correct : precision/recall f1 - may be use terms that they are interested in such as sensitivity, specificity

Subjective measures really depend on whether in fact the right articles and databases are mined out or not.  This depends on whether we know which databases can be pulled from and whether those resources are indeed open-source or not.

2. Comparator

Not sure what this means.  What do others use as a yardstick to measure how things stack up.

3. Requires user studies.  That is like pulling teeth.  Better to have objective measures and pilots on some grants that would be useful (like the stated incipient projects)


2. Specific aims

A successful tool would have to incorporate heavy doses of UI and at least least-hasselling correction support.  Manual tools are always best, and automation only part of the answer.  Setting up the proper training data and annotation would need to be a key part of the project, but not for the pilot grant.

Not sure that automated methods are going to be any more accurate.  Maybe more consistent and exhaustive at best

Start by asking policy makers what they need and what level ot support/accuracy they need.  That's needed for the bigger picture in a full proposal.


pilot scope - extract without ui/corrections, canonicalization of HTML, just text (hopefully that's suitable enough to do the study without significant engineering work).  Do pilot on some core areas where searching or pulling is done in an automated manner (saved search).  Don't trace anaphora or data in tables.

expanded scope in pilot: use full text (not abstract, as data is not complete enough).

Achieve this by using a combination of heuristic rules as well as well-founded text mining.
Rules are used to identify the scope of the applicable sections.
A separate machine learner to learn the pattern instances from marked up data.

Heuristic rules to be compiled by identifying header sections.  Scope of these rules to be dependent on recall/precision trade-off.  In pilot, only treat some versions of standard xml that is worth processing.  Do we need to do some document typing to decide whether or not the document should be classified -- a preprocessing step?

Identified section will then have sentences demarcated.  Use each sentence as decision point, taking into account global features (position, section headers, already identified information?) Soft patterns / ngram tile matching to do sentence classification, then CRF to do segmentation?

Not clear exactly what data gets pulled out.  Tests, dataset descriptions over varying levels of detail?  
Canonicalization/mention of same papers?  Dataset identifiers have specific orthographic patterns (capitals, numbers, versions), acronym expansions, table and figure pointers, citations, segmentation.  Use POS(or tool *is* a customized POS tagger) to throw away certain words for now.  factors as comma lists of items.

What is the coverage of these methods over actual documents?  Need to show that it would be at least somewhat useful for a sizeable amount of papers.

Point to acronym expansion (our old paper)

Each sentence to go through a classifier.  May end up using CRF++/SVM based training.

User-centric IR, personalization, understanding their requirement or expectation.

User interest-centered IR model - based on PRF to build prob model distribution over query, to create a user profile and interest

Social network analysis of a given user can help.  Is part of the DM of a user to build profile.

Revised from ECSW 2007

Search as object search with attributes that can be missing, noisy, incorrect.
also infer intention of the object
difficult task: inferring trust/reliability?

nav queries have 95% precision in 1-click nav.  suggest pushing user to that page?

2007 - already clickthrough data is very big (18GB/day) but much smaller than total typed content (170TB), but growing

searchmonkey - query specific search results?

query network structure gives power law distribution. click structure can yield folksonomy / synonyms through query re-writing.

continuous classification rather than binary
over unsupervised data using single positive vocabulary instance.
used it168.com corpus again

a) classifier for zones (orthographic as extraction points
b) classifier for vocabulary

objective vs. subjective
objective classifier didn't work well, replace with sentiment dictionary worked well.

idea:seq of zone analysis: they tried longest seq

P.S. I'd also like to add you to my group's news mailing list. This is a very low (4 emails per year) mailing list (with the subject [WINGnews]) documenting recent work from my research group, WING. If you're interested, just reply to this message and let me know, otherwise, no worries — I'll only add you to the list if you explicitly agree to it.

source code is available: svn co http://svn.citeulike.org/svn/ citeulike
some data available.  Need to see whether the data can be imported into FC.
fully backed up nightly.  A real production site.  
Imports metadata from publishers using plugins or policy
Helpful for groups working together in collab framework, but seems low traffic; may need better collab features


Lots of data, possible to scrap by webservice?
List of publications by date
can really use a UI refresh, links hard to see
shows too much data.
quite fast, running tomcat serving jsp.  (saw this by generating an error)
not very current; we need to proactively mine conferences on the web.
also links don't always work, need to spider our own site to ensure accessibility


offers tagging but puts suggested tags up front (to read, read, classic, tutorial)
has topics compiled by topic model work of PI
rexa raw link shows metadata captured by their system
creates bibtex on fly

Thanks for your interest in my research group.  Unfortunately at this
time I don't have any funding for open positions.  However, if you are
interested coming to NUS, you might apply directly for an internship
position  through the human resources department.  The pertinent
details can be found on our school's website.
