Synergy of Monotonic Rules

JMLR

This article describes a method for constructing a special rule (we call it synergy rule) that uses as its input information the outputs (scores) of several monotonic rules which solve the same pattern recognition problem.

Compressing Graphs and Indexes with Recursive Graph Bisection

KDD

Graph reordering is a powerful technique to increase the locality of the representations of graphs, which can be helpful in several applications. We study how the technique can be used to improve compression of graphs and inverted indexes.

Strategies for Training Large Vocabulary Neural Language Models

Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL 2016)

We present a systematic comparison of neural strategies to represent and train large vocabularies, including softmax, hierarchical softmax, target sampling, noise contrastive estimation and self normalization.

Promoting Connection: Designing Social Media Experiences to Support People with Eating Disorders

International Conference on Design & Emotion 2016

This paper explores ways to address the emotional needs of social media users through designing experiences that (a) make people feel seen and heard by focusing on their suffering and emotions rather than their eating behaviors; (b) help people feel they belong by focusing on activities and opportunities that enable connection with themselves and things they value; and (c) help people feel in control by focusing on resources and information to receive support or take steps toward recovery.

The Relationship Between Facebook Use and Well-Being Depends on Communication Type and Tie Strength

Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication

An extensive literature shows that social relationships influence psychological well-being, but the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. We test predictions about online interactions and well-being made by theories of belongingness, relationship maintenance, relational investment, social support, and social comparison.

Single Image 3D Interpreter Network

European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV)

In this work, we propose 3D INterpreter Network (3D-INN), an end-to-end framework which sequentially estimates 2D keypoint heatmaps and 3D object structure, trained on both real 2D-annotated images and synthetic 3D data.

HapticWave: Directional Surface Vibrations using Wave-Field Synthesis

SIGGRAPH 2016

HapticWave is a novel haptic technology that delivers directional haptic sensations generated on a flat surface to the user, without requiring him/her to wear a physical device.
