Generating Synthetic Data for Conversational Music Recommendation Using Random Walks and Language Models

no code implementations27 Jan 2023 Megan Leszczynski, Ravi Ganti, Shu Zhang, Krisztian Balog, Filip Radlinski, Fernando Pereira, Arun Tejasvi Chaganty

Conversational recommendation systems (CRSs) enable users to use natural language feedback to control their recommendations, overcoming many of the challenges of traditional recommendation systems.

CapsField: Light Field-based Face and Expression Recognition in the Wild using Capsule Routing

no code implementations10 Jan 2021 Alireza Sepas-Moghaddam, Ali Etemad, Fernando Pereira, Paulo Lobato Correia

A subset of the in the wild dataset contains facial images with different expressions, annotated for usage in the context of face expression recognition tests.

Faithful Embeddings for Knowledge Base Queries

1 code implementation NeurIPS 2020 Haitian Sun, Andrew O. Arnold, Tania Bedrax-Weiss, Fernando Pereira, William W. Cohen

We address this problem with a novel QE method that is more faithful to deductive reasoning, and show that this leads to better performance on complex queries to incomplete KBs.

A Double-Deep Spatio-Angular Learning Framework for Light Field based Face Recognition

no code implementations25 May 2018 Alireza Sepas-Moghaddam, Mohammad A. Haque, Paulo Lobato Correia, Kamal Nasrollahi, Thomas B. Moeslund, Fernando Pereira

This paper proposes a double-deep spatio-angular learning framework for light field based face recognition, which is able to learn both texture and angular dynamics in sequence using convolutional representations; this is a novel recognition framework that has never been proposed before for either face recognition or any other visual recognition task.

Multinomial Loss on Held-out Data for the Sparse Non-negative Matrix Language Model

no code implementations5 Nov 2015 Ciprian Chelba, Fernando Pereira

In experiments on the one billion words language modeling benchmark, we are able to slightly improve on our previous results which use a different loss function, and employ leave-one-out training on a subset of the main training set.

Controlling Complexity in Part-of-Speech Induction

no code implementations16 Jan 2014 João V. Graça, Kuzman Ganchev, Luisa Coheur, Fernando Pereira, Ben Taskar

We consider the problem of fully unsupervised learning of grammatical (part-of-speech) categories from unlabeled text.

Posterior vs Parameter Sparsity in Latent Variable Models

no code implementations NeurIPS 2009 Kuzman Ganchev, Ben Taskar, Fernando Pereira, João Gama

We apply this new method to learn first-order HMMs for unsupervised part-of-speech (POS) tagging, and show that HMMs learned this way consistently and significantly out-performs both EM-trained HMMs, and HMMs with a sparsity-inducing Dirichlet prior trained by variational EM.

Exact Convex Confidence-Weighted Learning

no code implementations NeurIPS 2008 Koby Crammer, Mark Dredze, Fernando Pereira

Confidence-weighted (CW) learning [6], an online learning method for linear classifiers, maintains a Gaussian distributions over weight vectors, with a covariance matrix that represents uncertainty about weights and correlations.

Learning Bounds for Domain Adaptation

no code implementations NeurIPS 2007 John Blitzer, Koby Crammer, Alex Kulesza, Fernando Pereira, Jennifer Wortman

Empirical risk minimization offers well-known learning guarantees when training and test data come from the same domain.
