Near-Optimal Experimental Design Under the Budget Constraint in Online Platforms

no code implementations10 Feb 2023 Yongkang Guo, Yuan Yuan, Jinshan Zhang, Yuqing Kong, Zhihua Zhu, Zheng Cai

A/B testing, or controlled experiments, is the gold standard approach to causally compare the performance of algorithms on online platforms.

Dynamic Budget Throttling in Repeated Second-Price Auctions

no code implementations11 Jul 2022 Zhaohua Chen, Chang Wang, Qian Wang, Yuqi Pan, Zhuming Shi, Zheng Cai, Yukun Ren, Zhihua Zhu, Xiaotie Deng

In the stochastic case, we illustrate that pacing is generally better than throttling for the buyer, which is an extension of known results that pacing is asymptotically optimal in this scenario.

Improved Lyman Alpha Tomography using Optimized Reconstruction with Constraints on Absorption (ORCA)

no code implementations24 Feb 2021 Zihao Li, Benjamin Horowitz, Zheng Cai

In this work, we propose an improved approach to reconstruct the three-dimensional intergalactic medium from observed Lyman-$\alpha$ forest absorption features.

Spatial AMR: Expanded Spatial Annotation in the Context of a Grounded Minecraft Corpus

no code implementations LREC 2020 Julia Bonn, Martha Palmer, Zheng Cai, Kristin Wright-Bettner

This paper presents an expansion to the Abstract Meaning Representation (AMR) annotation schema that captures fine-grained semantically and pragmatically derived spatial information in grounded corpora.

Towards Near-imperceptible Steganographic Text

1 code implementation ACL 2019 Falcon Z. Dai, Zheng Cai

We show that the imperceptibility of several existing linguistic steganographic systems (Fang et al., 2017; Yang et al., 2018) relies on implicit assumptions on statistical behaviors of fluent text.

Deep Learning of Quasar Spectra to Discover and Characterize Damped Lya Systems

1 code implementation14 Sep 2017 David Parks, J. Xavier Prochaska, Shawfeng Dong, Zheng Cai

Testing on a held-back validation set demonstrates a high incidence of DLAs recovered by the algorithm (97. 4% as DLAs and 99% as an HI absorber with log NHI > 19. 5) and excellent estimates for zabs and NHI.

Glyph-aware Embedding of Chinese Characters

1 code implementation WS 2017 Falcon Z. Dai, Zheng Cai

Given the advantage and recent success of English character-level and subword-unit models in several NLP tasks, we consider the equivalent modeling problem for Chinese.

Video (GIF) Sentiment Analysis using Large-Scale Mid-Level Ontology

no code implementations2 Jun 2015 Zheng Cai, Donglin Cao, Rongrong Ji

However, GIF sentiment analysis is quite challenging, not only because it hinges on spatio-temporal visual contentabstraction, but also for the relationship between such abstraction and final sentiment remains unknown. In this paper, we dedicated to find out such relationship. We proposed a SentiPairSequence basedspatiotemporal visual sentiment ontology, which forms the midlevel representations for GIFsentiment.
