  • CAIS Seminar: Dr. Long Tran-Thanh (University of Southampton) - Bandit Theory and its Application to Security Games

    Wed, Aug 09, 2017 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. Long Tran-Thanh, University of Southampton

    Talk Title: Bandit Theory and its Application to Security Games

    Series: Center for AI in Society (CAIS) Seminar Series

    Abstract: Dr. Tran-Thanh will briefly discuss different models of bandit theory, which lies within the intersection of sequential decision making and online optimization. In particular, he will start with the basic concept of the multi-armed bandit model, and later extend it by changing its parameters and/or assumptions. Finally, Dr. Tran-Thanh will show how these models can be applied to repeated security games, for both zero-sum and non zero-sum.

    Biography: Dr. Tran-Thanh is a Lecturer at the University of Southampton, UK. He obtained his PhD in Computer Science in 2012 at the same university. He has been conducting active research in a number of key areas of AI, mainly focusing on combining online machine learning, game theory, and incentive engineering to tackle resource-constrained decision making problems where one has to deal with strategic human participants and/or malicious opponents. Additionally, Dr. Tran-Thanh has also applied his theoretical findings to a number of real world applications, such as online keyword bidding, wireless sensor networks, and crowdsourcing.

  • NL Seminar-Improving machine translation from low resource languages

    Fri, Aug 11, 2017 @ 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Nima Pourdamghani, USC/ISI

    Talk Title: Improving machine translation from low resource languages

    Series: Natural Language Seminar

    Abstract: Statistical machine translation MT often needs a large corpus of parallel translated sentences in order to achieve good performance. This limits the use of current MT technologies to a few resource rich languages. Assume an incident happens in an area with a low-resource language. For a quick response, we need to build an MT system with available data, as finding or translating new parallel data is expensive and time consuming. For many languages this means that we only have a small amount of often out-of-domain parallel data e.g. a Bible or Ubuntu manual. This talk is about ways to improve machine translation in low resource scenarios. I'll talk about use of monolingual data and parallel data from related languages to improve machine translation from the low resource language into English.



    Biography: Nima Pourdamghani is a fourth year Ph.D. student at ISI. He works with Professor Kevin Knight on machine translation from low resource languages.

    Host: Nima Pourdamghani
