    Title: Robust and Proactive Error Detection and Correction in Tables


    Abstract:
    Web Tables serve as a rich source of knowledge that supports many knowledge-driven intelligent applications. However, similar to other online resources, information in Web tables is prone to errors and noise. To that end, data cleaning is an important step in table preprocessing and any untreated errors in tables can be detrimental for applications in later phases. Existing supervised methods in data cleaning depend on obtaining sufficient training data, which requires extensive human involvement, while unsupervised methods rely on fixed inductive biases to solve the problem, which is often not generalizable. In this proposal, we articulate the challenges posed in traditional table data cleaning studies and propose a unified solution to address these issues. The proposed approach uses open-domain question answering to proactively mine evidence from Web text to verify table semantic content. Also, an active learning model is integrated to leverage weakly supervised detectors/correctors for closed-domain robust syntactic error detection and correction. In combination, the unified framework aims to improve the accuracy and reduce human interaction in data cleaning for both syntactic and semantic errors.

  • NL Seminar-Fair Comparisons and Fundamental Ideas for Open Vocabulary Generative Language and Translation Models

    Thu, Aug 12, 2021 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Sabrina Mielke, Johns Hopkins Univ

    Talk Title: Fair Comparisons and Fundamental Ideas for Open-Vocabulary Generative Language and Translation Models

    Series: NL Seminar

    Abstract: REMINDER Meeting hosts only admit guests that they know to the Zoom meeting. Hence, you're highly encouraged to use your USC account to sign into Zoom. If you're an outside visitor, please inform nlg DASH seminar DASH admin2 AT isi.edu beforehand so we'll be aware of your attendance and let you in.
    ABSTRACT:
    How can we fairly compare the performance of generative language and translation models on multiple languages? We will see how to use probabilistic and information theory based measures, first to evaluate monolingual open vocabulary language models by total bits and then, considering the case of Translationese, pondering the meaning of information and how to use it to compare machine translation models. In both cases, we get a little glimpse at what linguistic and non-linguistic factors might make languages easier or harder for models. The last part of the talk will if time permits propose some somewhat opinionated guidelines for open-vocabulary language modeling, and show work in progress in taxonomizing tokenization methods and the literature around open vocabulary modeling.


    Biography: Sabrina is a PhD student at the Johns Hopkins University and a part-time research intern at HuggingFace, currently researching open vocabulary language modeling for unit discovery in a variety of typologically varying languages. While her pre PhD work focused on formal language theory applied to parsing and translation, during her PhD she published on morphology, fair language model comparison, stochastic romanization at Google AI, and metacognition and calibration for chatbots at Facebook AI Research, co organized workshops and shared tasks around morphology and typology, and is currently involved in the BigScience summer of large language models workshop.

    Title: Privacy-Aware Geo-Marketplaces

    Committee: Prof. Cyrus Shahabi (chair), Prof. Peter Kuhn, Prof. Bhaskar Krishnamachari, Dr. John Krumm

    Abstract:
    The advance of modern mobile communication devices has enabled people to easily create, consume, and share geospatial information about every aspect of their lives. However, the current practice of geospatial data collection and sharing is often that individuals provide their data for free in order to use services. However, information about locations of individuals can have serious privacy implications. While there was some regulation of location data collection and sharing, current practice is far from ideal for individuals to safely share their location information to service providers.

    An emerging alternative framework for current practice is to allow individuals to offer their location data through data marketplaces. We called these marketplaces geo-marketplaces. Geo-marketplaces raise a number of interesting issues about data ownership, utility, pricing and privacy. In this thesis, we focus on the interplay between utility, privacy and pricing of geospatial data in various settings of geo-marketplaces. More specifically, two important aspects of geo-marketplaces are at the center of interest: location privacy and pricing for various types of location data. Location privacy is essential for geo-marketplaces due to the sensitivity of location data. Pricing is crucial to make geo-marketplace viable, especially when geospatial data can come in many different forms. Thus, geo-marketplaces require efficient algorithms for selling different types of geospatial data with alternative pricing strategies while protecting sellers' location privacy.

    This thesis aims to enable geo-marketplaces with those requirements by investigating different settings of data types and pricing strategies in a geo-marketplace along with privacy considerations. These settings include (a) differentially private data point release with free query where some quantities derived from individuals' data points can be released for free with strong privacy protection, (b) encrypted data point release with fixed-price query where location data points or geo-tagged data objects for a fixed price with their locations advertised in encrypted space, (c) noisy data point release with variable price query where a location data point can be sold at different prices depending on how much noise is added, and (d) degraded trajectory release with variable-price query where a trajectory can be released or sold at different prices depending on how it is degraded. In each setting, we design the marketplace and develop principled methods to price data, protect privacy of owners and maintain utility of data for buyers in order to enable a viable geo-marketplace. In all settings, our proposed design and methods are evaluated by extensive experiments on large real-world datasets to show its practicality.

    Talk Title: 1.Leveraging Abstract Meaning Representations to Amplify the Semantic Information Captured in Transformer Models 2. Improving Multilingual Encoder With Contrastive Objective and Luna

    Series: NL Seminar

    Abstract: REMINDER Meeting hosts only admit guests that they know to the Zoom meeting. Hence, you're highly encouraged to use your USC account to sign into Zoom. If you're an outside visitor, please inform nlg DASH seminar DASH admin2 AT isi.edu beforehand so we'll be aware of your attendance and let you in.

    SHIRA WEIN
    Though state of the art language models perform well on a variety of natural language processing tasks, these models are not exposed to explicit semantic information. We propose that language models ability to capture semantic information can be improved through the inclusion of explicit semantic information in the form of meaning representations, thus improving performance on select downstream tasks. We discuss potential ways to incorporate meaning representations and present our preliminary results.

    LEO ZEYU LIU
    Transformers has been successfully adapted to multilingual pretraining. With only token level losses like masked language model, transformer encoder could produce good token and sentence representations. We propose to explicitly impose sentence level objectives using contrastive learning to further improve multilingual encoder. Furthermore, we also propose to merge this modification with what a new transformer architecture, Luna, could offer disentanglement between token and sentence representations. We will also discuss ways to evaluate the models and present our experimental progress.


    Biography: Shira Wein is an intern at ISI and a third year Ph.D. student at Georgetown University, working on semantic representations and multilingual cross lingual applications. Her previous work centers around L2 corpora, Abstract Meaning Representations, and information extraction from design documents, which she published on while interning at the Jet Propulsion Lab. Prior to starting her Ph.D., Shira was an undergraduate at Lafayette College, where she received a B.S. in Computer Science and B.A. in Spanish.


    Leo Zeyu Liu is a Master student in Computer Science at the University of Washington, advised by Noah A. Smith and Shane Steinert Threlkeld. His research aims at interpretability, pretraining, and intersection between NLP and Linguistics. He completed his bachelor in Computer Science at the University of Washington.

    Title:

    Diffusion Network Inference and Analysis for Disinformation Mitigation



    Abstract:

    The proliferation of false and misleading information on social media has greatly reduced trust in online systems. Disinformation is largely aimed at influencing public opinion and social outcomes, and has been associated with reduced intent towards pro-social behaviors, denial of science and truth, and increased prejudices. In this thesis proposal, we address challenges in disinformation mitigation leveraging the content propagation or diffusion dynamics of disinformation on social media, through diffusion network analysis and inference techniques.

    We propose techniques for early detection of disinformation contents, with a conditional generative model of social media responses to the content, leveraging historical responses to enrich semantic understanding of why content is labeled as disinformation. Secondly, we investigate how disinformation spreads and propose an unsupervised, generative model for detection of ma- licious coordinated efforts in the spread of disinformation, by inferring latent influence between accounts and collective group anomalous behaviors from observed account activities. Besides detection, we address challenges in network interventions to limit disinformation propagation and prevent viral cascades, by inferring diffusion dynamics of disinformation and legitimate contents from observed, unlabeled cascades with a mixture model of diffusion.

    In the proposed future work, we focus on characterizing engagement with disinformation and conspiracy groups on social media. In the U.S. Election, we will evaluate whether Twitter's restriction on the QAnon conspiracy group was effective in limiting its activities with a regression discontinuity design for estimating causal effects of Twitter's intervention. In addition, to address the critical challenges in disinformation labeling, we propose to study methods in uncertainty sampling for active label refinement of social media posts, weakly-labeled based on news source credibility, towards building large-scale disinformation datasets, minimizing expensive human fact-checking efforts to collect disinformation labels. The outcome of this thesis proposal is to improve mitigation techniques and characterization of disinformation for timely identification and containment and to inform the need for robust platform measures.

    Speaker: Amartya Banerjee, UCLA

    Talk Title: Symmetry, Deformations and the Search for Unprecedented Materials from First Principles

    Abstract: The mathematical framework of Objective Structures generalizes ideas associated with crystals to atomic/molecular configurations with non-periodic symmetries. Some of the most widely studied structures in materials science, biology and nano-technology can be described as objective structures. The list of objective structures includes nano-tubes, nano-ribbons, buckyballs, tail sheaths and capsids of viruses, many common proteins, graphene and phosphorene sheets as well as molecular bilayers. The presence of high degrees of symmetry in objective structures makes them likely to be associated with remarkable material properties (particularly, collective material properties such as ferromagnetism, ferroelectricity and superconductivity) and their departure from the bulk phase makes them likely to demonstrate such properties in manners that are otherwise unavailable in crystalline systems.

    A systematic study of objective structures is likely to lead to the discovery of unprecedented materials. At the same time, formulation and implementation of theoretical and computational methods specifically designed for studying objective structures, is likely to lead to the development of new simulation methodologies in nano-mechanics and materials science.

    Following these lines of thought, we have been developing Objective Density Functional Theory (Objective DFT) -“ a suite of rigorously formulated quantum mechanical theories and numerical algorithms for carrying out ab initio simulation studies of objective structures. Objective DFT is intended to be a natural extension of the traditional Periodic Density Functional Theory method for studying crystalline systems, just as objective structures are a natural generalization of periodic structures. In this talk, I will describe some of the principal mathematical ideas and algorithmic techniques behind Objective DFT, as well as some of the key features and capabilities of this novel computational tool. Additionally, I will highlight how Objective DFT allows the non-periodic symmetries associated with objective structures to be exploited, to investigate non-uniform deformation modes in various nano-materials, from first principles.

    Finally, I will discuss some of the many applications that have sprouted from the development of Objective DFT. These include (but are not limited to) the use of the computational packages developed in this work to study the mechanical stability and optical properties of nano-clusters, nano-ribbons and nano-tubes (with potential applications to energy materials and nano-structured meta-materials), ab initio studies of the mechanical and electronic properties of nano-beams, nano-tubes and various 2D materials, as well as the investigation of functional nano-materials with strongly correlated electronic states (with potential applications to the development of novel sensors and quantum hardware materials).

    Biography: Amartya Banerjee leads the Ab Initio Simulations Laboratory at UCLA, and is an Assistant Professor of Materials Science & Engineering. His research interests include first principles calculations, simulations of energy, quantum and biological materials, mechanics of materials and structures, applications of symmetry principles, multi-scale methods, numerical analysis and scientific computation. Dr. Banerjee obtained his Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering & Mechanics from the University of Minnesota in 2013. He also holds M.S. degrees in Mathematics, and Aerospace Engineering & Mechanics from the University of Minnesota. He received his undergraduate degree in Aerospace Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India in 2007. Prior to joining UCLA in 2019, he held postdoctoral appointments at the Computational Research Division of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and at the University of Minnesota.

    Dr. Banerjee has held visitor positions at the Hausdorff Research Institute for Mathematics, University of Bonn, Germany and the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, Minneapolis, USA. He has received several awards and travel grants (including the John A. & Jane Dunning Copper Fellowship from the University of Minnesota and the US Junior Oberwolfach Fellowship), and has delivered invited presentations at numerous prestigious research laboratories and universities.

    Thu, Aug 26, 2021 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Sonny Astani Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. Birendra Jha, Viterbi School, Department of Petroleum Engineering

    Talk Title: Characterization of Transport in Stress-sensitive Aquifers

    Abstract: Push-pull tracer tests are often used in groundwater engineering to characterize properties and processes in aquifers, e.g., using the tracer residence time information to quantify the number and geometry of fractures present in the aquifer, which is important for estimating hydraulic conductivity of the aquifer. Tracer transport through aquifers is typically modeled assuming the medium is rigid. However, many applications exist where the medium is mechanically deforming or evolving at some scale, e.g., due to the presence of fractures, soft rock, or chemical reactions. Characterization of transport in those aquifers requires understanding how geomechanical processes affect transport signals e.g., solute breakthrough time and degree of mixing, and how transport processes affect geomechanical signals e.g., stress changes and fracture activation. We test these hypotheses in a numerical model of push-pull testing in a fractured aquifer for which we develop a multiphysics modeling framework to solve the problem of fluid flow, tracer transport, poroelasticity, and fracture mechanics. We use the model to answer practical questions such as how much change in the tracer breakthrough time and degree of mixing corresponds to a given change in the average volumetric stress during aquifer pumping.



    Biography: Birendra Jha is an assistant professor of petroleum engineering at the University of Southern California, where his lab gemlab.usc.edu conducts research in fluid flow and mechanical deformation processes to better forecast the performance and hazards of subsurface engineering operations such CO2 sequestration and groundwater remediation in stress-sensitive rocks. His research has been funded by the US Department of Energy, National Science Foundation, American Chemical Society, and energy companies. Birendra received his masters and PhD from Stanford University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, respectively.

  • NL Seminar-FROM CONSTRAINED EVENT SEQUENCES GENERATION TO TEXT GENERATION

    Thu, Aug 26, 2021 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Shanxiu He, ISI Intern

    Talk Title: FROM CONSTRAINED EVENT SEQUENCES GENERATION TO TEXT GENERATION

    Abstract: REMINDER: Meeting hosts only admit guests that they know to the Zoom meeting. Hence, you're highly encouraged to use your USC account to sign into Zoom. If you're an outside visitor, please inform nlg DASH seminar DASH admin2 AT isi.edu beforehand so we'll be aware of your attendance and let you in.

    Understanding events is a critical component of natural language understanding NLU. A key challenge lies in the fact that events can be described in different granularities. A coarse grained event e.g., publishing a paper can often be disseminated into a fine grained process of events e.g., writing the paper, passing the peer review, and presenting at the conference. In this work, we tackle the problem of goal oriented event process generation, where a task goal event, a process that completes this goal is automatically generated. We tackle this task with a constrained generation approach, inferring unobserved event chains based on existing sequences. To leverage prior knowledge to facilitate commonsense reasoning, we employ pre trained LMs to generate event sequences and to retrieve original stories.

    Biography: Shanxiu He is an undergraduate at UCLA and a member of UCLANLP lab. Prior to the internship, her research interest focuses on pre rained Vision and Language models such as VisualBERT and ClipBert and their applications to various structural learning tasks. During this internship, she researches on event centric knowledge representation and specifically event sequences generations.
