A Context-Aware NLP Approach For Noteworthiness Detection in Cellphone Conversations

September 4, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
PGH 550

Abstract This papers presents a context-aware NLP approach to automatically detect noteworthy infor- mation in spontaneous mobile phone conversations. The proposed method uses a supervised modeling strategy which considers both features from the content of the conversation as well as contextual information from the call. We empirically analyze the predictive performance of features of different nature on a corpus of mobile phone conversations. The results of this study reveal that the context of the conversation plays a crucial role on…

A recent survey found that 87% of them have reinforced their decisions to purchase a product due to positive online reviews. At the same time 80% of consumers have changed their minds on the basis of negative information they found online. Therefore, online opinions play an important role for companies and there is an…

Speakers: Monojit Choudhury and Kalika Bali Multilingual communities exhibit code-switching, that is, mixing of two or more socially stable languages in a single conversation, sometimes even in a single utterance. This phenomenon has been widely studied by linguists and interaction scientists in the spoken language of such communities. However, with the prevalence of social media and other informal interactive platforms, code-switching is now also ubiquitously observed in user-generated text. As multilingual communities are more the norm from a global perspective, it…

RiTUAL Group Meeting: “Smart Reply: Automated Response Suggestion for Email”

September 23, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
PGH-550A

In this paper we propose and investigate a novel end-to-end method for automatically generating short email responses, called Smart Reply. It generates semantically diverse sug- gestions that can be used as complete email responses with just one tap on mobile. The system is currently used in In- box by Gmail and is responsible for assisting with 10% of all mobile responses. It is designed to work at very high throughput and process hundreds of millions of messages daily. The system exploits state-of-the-art, large-scale deep learning.
We describe the architecture of the system as well as the challenges that we faced while building it, like response di- versity and scalability. We also introduce a new method for semantic clustering of user-generated content that requires only a modest amount of explicitly labeled data.

Representation Learning (RL) consist in automatically learn features from the raw data input. The main goal is to obtain useful representations for machine learning algorithms. The recent success of some works related to RL (e.g., DeepLearning) has attracted the interest of NLP scientist. Some of the most relevant works in NLP have to do with learning the representations of words, also called: Word embedding. Word embedding maps the words of the vocabulary to vectors of real numbers in a low…
