Current limitations

Current Limitations

  • Information

    • Creation: Requires a prof/student to summarize information and discussions and

      • Update web sites

      • Write technical reports

      • Write papers

    • Storage: Not very well organized and integrated; Scattered in:

      • Web sites

      • Personal computers of professors and students

      • Spaces on department machines


Current limitations cont d

Current Limitations (cont’d)

  • Information:

    • Transformation:

      • Requires a prof/student to gather different sources of information and put them together to have the platform for adding new ideas.

    • Transportation:

      • Something should be published or be neatly put on the web site so that it can be somehow transported to other places.

      • It can also be done through email:

        • Takes a lot of time

        • May not be comprehensive


Current limitations cont d1

Current Limitations (cont’d)

  • Information:

    • Consumption:

      • Usually requires doing a lot of keyword-driven searchs on different

        • Professor / students’ web sites

        • Research groups’ web sites

        • Related conferences and talks

          Q: How can we better assist people in academia to:

    • Speed up the information cycle

    • Make the above life cycle easier to maintain and use?


Solution

Solution

Integrated Entity Based Information System with Support for Summarization and Q/A Queries (EBISQA)

  • Entities can be students, professors, research groups, classes, projects, and even the department itself.

  • Assigned to each entity:

    • A knowledge base (profile) which basically keeps track of and summarizes whatever happens to that entity.

    • Support for Q/A queries on that Entity for people at different levels:

      • The entity itself!

      • People/Entities inside specific groups

      • People inside the department

      • People inside the university

      • People outside the university


Example

Example

  • Entity: Omid

  • Assumption: There are speech recognition facilities everywhere backed up by strong NLP techniques and summarization algorithms!

  • Kind if information that goes into his profile:

    • Summary of the papers/topics discussed in the classes and seminars he attends

    • Summary of his meetings with his supervisor

    • Summary of non-personal messages (e-mails) he sends and receives

    • All the papers he accesses and projects he works on

    • Almost everything he does, except for those he flags them as personal.


Solution cont d

Solution (cont’d)

  • Privacy Issues: Support for Q/A queries on his profile at different levels:

    • Some of them determined by him.

    • Some of them determined by department policies!

  • Motivations Problem:

  • Why I would like to be somehow under “Investigation” all the time?

    • Will help me in getting more out of my classes, meetings, seminars, by performing searches on my own profile later.

    • Would help me find a job, if I provide access to my profile to employers.

  • I would spend $10M on:

    • Summarization techniques

    • NLP algorithms

    • Q/A queries
