Online Optical Marker-based Hand Tracking with Deep Labels

Special Interest Group on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques (SIGGRAPH)

We propose a technique that frames the labeling problem as a keypoint regression problem conducive to a solution using convolutional neural networks.

Controllable Abstractive Summarization

ACL NMT Workshop

We present a neural summarization model with a simple but effective mechanism to enable users to specify these high level attributes in order to control the shape of the final summaries to better suit their needs.

What you can cram into a single $&!#* vector: Probing sentence embeddings for linguistic properties

Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL)

We introduce here 10 probing tasks designed to capture simple linguistic features of sentences, and we use them to study embeddings generated by three different encoders trained in eight distinct ways, uncovering intriguing properties of both encoders and training methods.

Total Ionizing Dose Assessment of a Commercial 200V PMOSFET

IEEE Nuclear & Space Radiation Effects Conference (NSREC)

Total ionizing dose testing of commercial 200 V PMOSFETs. At 100 kRad(Si), observed VT increase of ~ 3 V for biased ON devices and increase of ~ 1 V for biased OFF devices. The RDS_ON did not degrade with dose.

Hearst Patterns Revisited: Automatic Hypernym Detection from Large Text Corpora

Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL)

Methods for unsupervised hypernym detection may broadly be categorized according to two paradigms: pattern-based and distributional methods. In this paper, we study the performance of both approaches on several hypernymy tasks and find that simple pattern-based methods consistently outperform distributional methods on common benchmark datasets.

Personalizing Dialogue Agents: I have a dog, do you have pets too?

Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL)

Chit-chat models are known to have several problems: they lack specificity, do not display a consistent personality and are often not very captivating. In this work we present the task of making chit-chat more engaging by conditioning on profile information.

Hierarchical Neural Story Generation

Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL)

We explore story generation: creative systems that can build coherent and fluent passages of text about a topic. We collect a large dataset of 300K human-written stories paired with writing prompts from an online forum.

Filtering and Mining Parallel Data in a Joint Multilingual Space

Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL)

We learn a joint multilingual sentence embedding and use the distance between sentences in different languages to filter noisy parallel data and to mine for parallel data in large news collections.

Code-Switched Named Entity Recognition with Embedding Attention

ACL CALCS Workshop

We describe our work for the CALCS 2018 shared task on named entity recognition on code-switched data.

Multilingual seq2seq training with similarity loss for cross-lingual document classification

RepL4NLP Workshop at ACL

In this paper we continue the line of work where neural machine translation training is used to produce joint cross-lingual fixed-dimensional sentence embeddings.
