Human-Centered Planning

no code implementations8 Nov 2023 Yuliang Li, Nitin Kamra, Ruta Desai, Alon Halevy

The vision of creating AI-powered personal assistants also involves creating structured outputs, such as a plan for one's day, or for an overseas trip.

VerifAI: Verified Generative AI

no code implementations6 Jul 2023 Nan Tang, Chenyu Yang, Ju Fan, Lei Cao, Yuyu Luo, Alon Halevy

We propose that verifying the outputs of generative AI from a data management perspective is an emerging issue for generative AI.

Reimagining Retrieval Augmented Language Models for Answering Queries

no code implementations1 Jun 2023 Wang-Chiew Tan, Yuliang Li, Pedro Rodriguez, Richard James, Xi Victoria Lin, Alon Halevy, Scott Yih

We present a reality check on large language models and inspect the promise of retrieval augmented language models in comparison.

Multimodal Neural Databases

1 code implementation2 May 2023 Giovanni Trappolini, Andrea Santilli, Emanuele Rodolà, Alon Halevy, Fabrizio Silvestri

The rise in loosely-structured data available through text, images, and other modalities has called for new ways of querying them.

Learnings from Data Integration for Augmented Language Models

no code implementations10 Apr 2023 Alon Halevy, Jane Dwivedi-Yu

One of the limitations of large language models is that they do not have access to up-to-date, proprietary or personal data.

Detecting and Understanding Harmful Memes: A Survey

1 code implementation9 May 2022 Shivam Sharma, Firoj Alam, Md. Shad Akhtar, Dimitar Dimitrov, Giovanni Da San Martino, Hamed Firooz, Alon Halevy, Fabrizio Silvestri, Preslav Nakov, Tanmoy Chakraborty

One interesting finding is that many types of harmful memes are not really studied, e. g., such featuring self-harm and extremism, partly due to the lack of suitable datasets.

The Moral Integrity Corpus: A Benchmark for Ethical Dialogue Systems

2 code implementations ACL 2022 Caleb Ziems, Jane A. Yu, Yi-Chia Wang, Alon Halevy, Diyi Yang

In this work, we introduce a new resource, not to authoritatively resolve moral ambiguities, but instead to facilitate systematic understanding of the intuitions, values and moral judgments reflected in the utterances of dialogue systems.

Quantifying Adaptability in Pre-trained Language Models with 500 Tasks

2 code implementations NAACL 2022 Belinda Z. Li, Jane Yu, Madian Khabsa, Luke Zettlemoyer, Alon Halevy, Jacob Andreas

When a neural language model (LM) is adapted to perform a new task, what aspects of the task predict the eventual performance of the model?

Detecting Inspiring Content on Social Media

1 code implementation6 Sep 2021 Oana Ignat, Y-Lan Boureau, Jane A. Yu, Alon Halevy

We release a dataset of 5, 800 inspiring and 5, 800 non-inspiring English-language public post unique ids collected from a dump of Reddit public posts made available by a third party and use linguistic heuristics to automatically detect which social media English-language posts are inspiring.

Database Reasoning Over Text

1 code implementation ACL 2021 James Thorne, Majid Yazdani, Marzieh Saeidi, Fabrizio Silvestri, Sebastian Riedel, Alon Halevy

Neural models have shown impressive performance gains in answering queries from natural language text.

Neural Databases

no code implementations14 Oct 2020 James Thorne, Majid Yazdani, Marzieh Saeidi, Fabrizio Silvestri, Sebastian Riedel, Alon Halevy

We describe NeuralDB, a database system with no pre-defined schema, in which updates and queries are given in natural language.


Happiness Entailment: Automating Suggestions for Well-Being

no code implementations23 Jul 2019 Sara Evensen, Yoshihiko Suhara, Alon Halevy, Vivian Li, Wang-Chiew Tan, Saran Mumick

We prototype one necessary component of such a system, the Happiness Entailment Recognition (HER) module, which takes as input a short text describing an event, a candidate suggestion, and outputs a determination about whether the suggestion is more likely to be good for this user based on the event described.

Subjective Databases

no code implementations25 Feb 2019 Yuliang Li, Aaron Xixuan Feng, Jinfeng Li, Saran Mumick, Alon Halevy, Vivian Li, Wang-Chiew Tan

In order to support experiential queries, a database system needs to model subjective data and also be able to process queries where the user can express varied subjective experiences in words chosen by the user, in addition to specifying predicates involving objective attributes.


FrameIt: Ontology Discovery for Noisy User-Generated Text

no code implementations WS 2018 Dan Iter, Alon Halevy, Wang-Chiew Tan

A common need of NLP applications is to extract structured data from text corpora in order to perform analytics or trigger an appropriate action.

Active Learning Semantic Role Labeling

Scalable Semantic Querying of Text

no code implementations3 May 2018 Xiaolan Wang, Aaron Feng, Behzad Golshan, Alon Halevy, George Mihaila, Hidekazu Oiwa, Wang-Chiew Tan

KOKO is novel in that its extraction language simultaneously supports conditions on the surface of the text and on the structure of the dependency parse tree of sentences, thereby allowing for more refined extractions.

HappyDB: A Corpus of 100,000 Crowdsourced Happy Moments

2 code implementations LREC 2018 Akari Asai, Sara Evensen, Behzad Golshan, Alon Halevy, Vivian Li, Andrei Lopatenko, Daniela Stepanov, Yoshihiko Suhara, Wang-Chiew Tan, Yinzhan Xu
