Did Chatbots Miss Their 'Apollo Moment'? A Survey of the Potential, Gaps and Lessons from Using Collaboration Assistants During COVID-19

no code implementations27 Feb 2021 Biplav Srivastava

Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies have long been positioned as a tool to provide crucial data-driven decision support to people.

SWOW-8500: Word Association task for Intrinsic Evaluation of Word Embeddings

1 code implementation WS 2019 Avijit Thawani, Biplav Srivastava, Anil Singh

Downstream evaluation of pretrained word embeddings is expensive, more so for tasks where current state of the art models are very large architectures.

A Train Status Assistant for Indian Railways

no code implementations23 Sep 2018 Himadri Mishra, Ramashish Gaurav, Biplav Srivastava

Trains are part-and-parcel of every day lives in countries with large, diverse, multi-lingual population like India.

Trusted Multi-Party Computation and Verifiable Simulations: A Scalable Blockchain Approach

no code implementations22 Sep 2018 Ravi Kiran Raman, Roman Vaculin, Michael Hind, Sekou L. Remy, Eleftheria K. Pissadaki, Nelson Kibichii Bore, Roozbeh Daneshvar, Biplav Srivastava, Kush R. Varshney

Large-scale computational experiments, often running over weeks and over large datasets, are used extensively in fields such as epidemiology, meteorology, computational biology, and healthcare to understand phenomena, and design high-stakes policies affecting everyday health and economy.


Towards Composable Bias Rating of AI Services

no code implementations31 Jul 2018 Biplav Srivastava, Francesca Rossi

The possibly biased behavior of a service is hard to detect and handle if the AI service is merely being used and not developed from scratch, since the training data set is not available.


Estimating Train Delays in a Large Rail Network Using a Zero Shot Markov Model

2 code implementations7 Jun 2018 Ramashish Gaurav, Biplav Srivastava

India runs the fourth largest railway transport network size carrying over 8 billion passengers per year.

On Chatbots Exhibiting Goal-Directed Autonomy in Dynamic Environments

no code implementations26 Mar 2018 Biplav Srivastava

Conversation interfaces (CIs), or chatbots, are a popular form of intelligent agents that engage humans in task-oriented or informal conversation.

Toward Cognitive and Immersive Systems: Experiments in a Cognitive Microworld

no code implementations14 Sep 2017 Matthew Peveler, Naveen Sundar Govindarajulu, Selmer Bringsjord, Biplav Srivastava, Kartik Talamadupula, Hui Su

These \textit{cognitive and immersive systems} (CAISs) fall squarely into the intersection of AI with HCI/HRI: such systems interact with and assist the human agents that enter them, in no small part because such systems are infused with AI able to understand and reason about these humans and their knowledge, beliefs, goals, communications, plans, etc.

Visualizations for an Explainable Planning Agent

no code implementations13 Sep 2017 Tathagata Chakraborti, Kshitij P. Fadnis, Kartik Talamadupula, Mishal Dholakia, Biplav Srivastava, Jeffrey O. Kephart, Rachel K. E. Bellamy

In this paper, we report on the visualization capabilities of an Explainable AI Planning (XAIP) agent that can support human in the loop decision making.
