Examining the Potential for Conversational Exploratory Search using a Smart Speaker Digital Assistant

no code implementations18 Mar 2023 Abhishek Kaushik, Gareth J. F. Jones

Online Digital Assistants, such as Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple Siri are very popular and provide a range or services to their users, a key function is their ability to satisfy user information needs from the sources available to them.

Achieving Reliable Human Assessment of Open-Domain Dialogue Systems

1 code implementation ACL 2022 Tianbo Ji, Yvette Graham, Gareth J. F. Jones, Chenyang Lyu, Qun Liu

Answering the distress call of competitions that have emphasized the urgent need for better evaluation techniques in dialogue, we present the successful development of human evaluation that is highly reliable while still remaining feasible and low cost.

Chinese Character Decomposition for Neural MT with Multi-Word Expressions

1 code implementation NoDaLiDa 2021 Lifeng Han, Gareth J. F. Jones, Alan F. Smeaton, Paolo Bolzoni

To investigate the impact of Chinese decomposition embedding in detail, i. e., radical, stroke, and intermediate levels, and how well these decompositions represent the meaning of the original character sequences, we carry out analysis with both automated and human evaluation of MT.

Kernel Density Estimation based Factored Relevance Model for Multi-Contextual Point-of-Interest Recommendation

no code implementations28 Jun 2020 Anirban Chakraborty, Debasis Ganguly, Annalina Caputo, Gareth J. F. Jones

An automated contextual suggestion algorithm is likely to recommend contextually appropriate and personalized 'points-of-interest' (POIs) to a user, if it can extract information from the user's preference history (exploitation) and effectively blend it with the user's current contextual information (exploration) to predict a POI's 'appropriateness' in the current context.
