Learning to Read Maps: Understanding Natural Language Instructions from Unseen Maps

1 code implementation ACL (splurobonlp) 2021 Miltiadis Marios Katsakioris, Ioannis Konstas, Pierre Yves Mignotte, Helen Hastie

Robust situated dialog requires the ability to process instructions based on spatial information, which may or may not be available.

Exploring Multi-Modal Representations for Ambiguity Detection & Coreference Resolution in the SIMMC 2.0 Challenge

1 code implementation25 Feb 2022 Francisco Javier Chiyah-Garcia, Alessandro Suglia, José Lopes, Arash Eshghi, Helen Hastie

Anaphoric expressions, such as pronouns and referential descriptions, are situated with respect to the linguistic context of prior turns, as well as, the immediate visual environment.

Coreference Resolution

A Study of Automatic Metrics for the Evaluation of Natural Language Explanations

1 code implementation EACL 2021 Miruna Clinciu, Arash Eshghi, Helen Hastie

As transparency becomes key for robotics and AI, it will be necessary to evaluate the methods through which transparency is provided, including automatically generated natural language (NL) explanations.

The Lab vs The Crowd: An Investigation into Data Quality for Neural Dialogue Models

1 code implementation7 Dec 2020 José Lopes, Francisco J. Chiyah Garcia, Helen Hastie

Challenges around collecting and processing quality data have hampered progress in data-driven dialogue models.

Transfer Learning for British Sign Language Modelling

no code implementations COLING 2018 Boris Mocialov, Graham Turner, Helen Hastie

Automatic speech recognition and spoken dialogue systems have made great advances through the use of deep machine learning methods.

Robots in the Danger Zone: Exploring Public Perception through Engagement

no code implementations1 Apr 2020 David A. Robb, Muneeb I. Ahmad, Carlo Tiseo, Simona Aracri, Alistair C. McConnell, Vincent Page, Christian Dondrup, Francisco J. Chiyah Garcia, Hai-Nguyen Nguyen, Èric Pairet, Paola Ardón Ramírez, Tushar Semwal, Hazel M. Taylor, Lindsay J. Wilson, David Lane, Helen Hastie, Katrin Lohan

We describe the use of a light touch quiz-format survey instrument to integrate in-the-wild research participation into the engagement, allowing us to probe both the effectiveness of our engagement strategy, and public perceptions of the future roles of robots and humans working in dangerous settings, such as in the off-shore energy sector.

CRWIZ: A Framework for Crowdsourcing Real-Time Wizard-of-Oz Dialogues

1 code implementation LREC 2020 Francisco J. Chiyah Garcia, José Lopes, Xingkun Liu, Helen Hastie

Large corpora of task-based and open-domain conversational dialogues are hugely valuable in the field of data-driven dialogue systems.

Natural Language Interaction to Facilitate Mental Models of Remote Robots

no code implementations12 Mar 2020 Francisco J. Chiyah Garcia, José Lopes, Helen Hastie

Increasingly complex and autonomous robots are being deployed in real-world environments with far-reaching consequences.

Corpus of Multimodal Interaction for Collaborative Planning

no code implementations WS 2019 Miltiadis Marios Katsakioris, Helen Hastie, Ioannis Konstas, Atanas Laskov

As autonomous systems become more commonplace, we need a way to easily and naturally communicate to them our goals and collaboratively come up with a plan on how to achieve these goals.

Explainable Autonomy: A Study of Explanation Styles for Building Clear Mental Models

no code implementations WS 2018 Francisco Javier Chiyah Garcia, David A. Robb, Xingkun Liu, Atanas Laskov, Pedro Patron, Helen Hastie

As unmanned vehicles become more autonomous, it is important to maintain a high level of transparency regarding their behaviour and how they operate.

Explain Yourself: A Natural Language Interface for Scrutable Autonomous Robots

no code implementations6 Mar 2018 Francisco J. Chiyah Garcia, David A. Robb, Xingkun Liu, Atanas Laskov, Pedro Patron, Helen Hastie

Autonomous systems in remote locations have a high degree of autonomy and there is a need to explain what they are doing and why in order to increase transparency and maintain trust.

The ORCA Hub: Explainable Offshore Robotics through Intelligent Interfaces

no code implementations6 Mar 2018 Helen Hastie, Katrin Lohan, Mike Chantler, David A. Robb, Subramanian Ramamoorthy, Ron Petrick, Sethu Vijayakumar, David Lane

To enable this to happen, the remote operator will need a high level of situation awareness and key to this is the transparency of what the autonomous systems are doing and why.

A Review of Evaluation Techniques for Social Dialogue Systems

no code implementations13 Sep 2017 Amanda Cercas Curry, Helen Hastie, Verena Rieser

In contrast with goal-oriented dialogue, social dialogue has no clear measure of task success.

An Ensemble method for Content Selection for Data-to-text Systems

no code implementations9 Jun 2015 Dimitra Gkatzia, Helen Hastie

We present a novel approach for automatic report generation from time-series data, in the context of student feedback generation.

A Comparative Evaluation Methodology for NLG in Interactive Systems

no code implementations LREC 2014 Helen Hastie, Anja Belz

We start with presenting a categorisation framework, giving an overview of different categories of evaluation measures, in order to provide standard terminology for categorising existing and new evaluation techniques.
