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
