Determinantal Point Process Likelihoods for Sequential Recommendation

1 code implementation25 Apr 2022 Yuli Liu, Christian Walder, Lexing Xie

Sequential recommendation is a popular task in academic research and close to real-world application scenarios, where the goal is to predict the next action(s) of the user based on his/her previous sequence of actions.

We propose the multi-impulse exogenous function when the exogenous events are observed as event time and the latent homogeneous Poisson process exogenous function when the exogenous events are presented as interval-censored volumes.

Radflow: A Recurrent, Aggregated, and Decomposable Model for Networks of Time Series

1 code implementation15 Feb 2021 Alasdair Tran, Alexander Mathews, Cheng Soon Ong, Lexing Xie

We introduce Radflow, a novel model that embodies three key ideas: a recurrent neural network to obtain node embeddings that depend on time, the aggregation of the flow of influence from neighboring nodes with multi-head attention, and the multi-layer decomposition of time series.

UNIPoint: Universally Approximating Point Processes Intensities

no code implementations28 Jul 2020 Alexander Soen, Alexander Mathews, Daniel Grixti-Cheng, Lexing Xie

The proof connects the well known Stone-Weierstrass Theorem for function approximation, the uniform density of non-negative continuous functions using a transfer functions, the formulation of the parameters of a piece-wise continuous functions as a dynamic system, and a recurrent neural network implementation for capturing the dynamics.

Transform and Tell: Entity-Aware News Image Captioning

1 code implementation CVPR 2020 Alasdair Tran, Alexander Mathews, Lexing Xie

We address the first challenge by associating words in the caption with faces and objects in the image, via a multi-modal, multi-head attention mechanism.

Variation across Scales: Measurement Fidelity under Twitter Data Sampling

1 code implementation21 Mar 2020 Siqi Wu, Marian-Andrei Rizoiu, Lexing Xie

This paper presents in-depth measurements on the effects of Twitter data sampling across different timescales and different subjects (entities, networks, and cascades).

Quantile Propagation for Wasserstein-Approximate Gaussian Processes

1 code implementation NeurIPS 2020 Rui Zhang, Christian J. Walder, Edwin V. Bonilla, Marian-Andrei Rizoiu, Lexing Xie

We show that QP matches quantile functions rather than moments as in EP and has the same mean update but a smaller variance update than EP, thereby alleviating EP's tendency to over-estimate posterior variances.

Estimating Attention Flow in Online Video Networks

1 code implementation20 Aug 2019 Siqi Wu, Marian-Andrei Rizoiu, Lexing Xie

In this paper, we first construct the Vevo network -- a YouTube video network with 60, 740 music videos interconnected by the recommendation links, and we collect their associated viewing dynamics.

ASNets: Deep Learning for Generalised Planning

no code implementations4 Aug 2019 Sam Toyer, Felipe Trevizan, Sylvie Thiébaux, Lexing Xie

In this paper, we discuss the learning of generalised policies for probabilistic and classical planning problems using Action Schema Networks (ASNets).

Comparative Document Summarisation via Classification

1 code implementation6 Dec 2018 Umanga Bista, Alexander Mathews, Minjeong Shin, Aditya Krishna Menon, Lexing Xie

This paper considers extractive summarisation in a comparative setting: given two or more document groups (e. g., separated by publication time), the goal is to select a small number of documents that are representative of each group, and also maximally distinguishable from other groups.

Efficient Non-parametric Bayesian Hawkes Processes

1 code implementation8 Oct 2018 Rui Zhang, Christian Walder, Marian-Andrei Rizoiu, Lexing Xie

On two large-scale Twitter diffusion datasets, we show that our methods outperform the current state-of-the-art in goodness-of-fit and that the time complexity is linear in the size of the dataset.

SemStyle: Learning to Generate Stylised Image Captions using Unaligned Text

1 code implementation CVPR 2018 Alexander Mathews, Lexing Xie, Xuming He

We develop a model that learns to generate visually relevant styled captions from a large corpus of styled text without aligned images.

Modeling Popularity in Asynchronous Social Media Streams with Recurrent Neural Networks

no code implementations6 Apr 2018 Swapnil Mishra, Marian-Andrei Rizoiu, Lexing Xie

We find that results depend on the type of content being promoted: superusers are more successful in promoting Howto and Gaming videos, whereas the cohort of regular users are more influential for Activism videos.
