Tailoring Generative AI Chatbots for Multiethnic Communities in Disaster Preparedness Communication: Extending the CASA Paradigm

no code implementations12 Jun 2024 Xinyan Zhao, Yuan Sun, Wenlin Liu, Chau-Wai Wong

This study is among the first to develop different prototypes of generative AI (GenAI) chatbots powered by GPT 4 to communicate hurricane preparedness information to diverse residents.


Multi-User MultiWOZ: Task-Oriented Dialogues among Multiple Users

1 code implementation31 Oct 2023 Yohan Jo, Xinyan Zhao, Arijit Biswas, Nikoletta Basiou, Vincent Auvray, Nikolaos Malandrakis, Angeliki Metallinou, Alexandros Potamianos

While most task-oriented dialogues assume conversations between the agent and one user at a time, dialogue systems are increasingly expected to communicate with multiple users simultaneously who make decisions collaboratively.

Toward Effective Automated Content Analysis via Crowdsourcing

no code implementations12 Jan 2021 Jiele Wu, Chau-Wai Wong, Xinyan Zhao, Xianpeng Liu

For subjective features such as semantic connotation, online workers, known for optimizing their hourly earnings, tend to deteriorate in the quality of their responses as they work longer.

LIREx: Augmenting Language Inference with Relevant Explanation

1 code implementation16 Dec 2020 Xinyan Zhao, V. G. Vinod Vydiswaran

Natural language explanations (NLEs) are a special form of data annotation in which annotators identify rationales (most significant text tokens) when assigning labels to data instances, and write out explanations for the labels in natural language based on the rationales.

A Weighted Heterogeneous Graph Based Dialogue System

no code implementations21 Oct 2020 Xinyan Zhao, LiangWei Chen, Huanhuan Chen

Most research on disease diagnosis dialogue systems highly rely on data-driven methods and statistical features, lacking profound comprehension of symptom-disease relations and symptom-symptom relations.
