Emotion Ranking and Emotion Transition Modelling in Text

Abstract
    Text might contain or evoke multiple emotions with varying intensities. Traditional approaches typically cast the problem of detecting multiple emotions from text as multi-label classification. This talk will first present a novel ranking-based approach to generate a ranked list of relevant emotions where top ranked emotions are more intensely associated with text compared to lower ranked emotions. Furthermore, since emotions might be evoked by different hidden topics, it is important to unveil and incorporate such topical information to understand how the emotions are evoked. A novel neural network approach with topical information incorporated will be discussed for relevant emotion ranking. Finally, by modelling the topics and emotions in successive sentences as a Markov chain, a novel probabilistic graphical model will be presented to automatically detect the sentence-level topic and emotion labels despite being trained from document-level emotion labels only.

Crowd Research: Data, Workflows, and Crowd-AI Systems

Abstract
    Amazon Mechanical Turk, one of the largest crowdsourcing marketplace, was launched to the public in 2005. Since then, researchers have developed a tremendous amount of work around this platform. In this talk, we will walk through three phases of crowd research through the lens of building future computer systems, including (i) labeling datasets and providing human feedback for computer systems, (ii) developing human computation workflows for complex tasks, and (iii) creating real-time interactive systems using crowd-AI architectures.

Towards Open-Domain Conversational AI

Abstract
    Interacting with machines via natural language has been an emerging trend. The goal of developing open-domain dialogue systems that not only emulate human conversation but fulfill complex tasks, such as travel planning, seemed elusive. Recent advances in deep learning enabled new research frontiers for end-to-end conversational systems. This talk will review the research work about deep learning and reinforcement learning technologies that have been developed for two types of conversational agents. First is a task-oriented dialogue system that can help users accomplish tasks, ranging from meeting scheduling to vacation planning. Second is a social bot that can converse seamlessly and appropriately with humans. This talk will conclude with the advanced work that attempted to develop open-domain neural dialogue systems by combining the strengths of both types of agents. (Slide)

Machine Learning for Creative AI Applications in Music

Abstract
    In this talk, I will briefly introduce three latest projects in our lab at Academia Sinica on creative applications in music, including the singing voice separation project, GenMusic (music generation) project, and the DJnet project. The first project is about separating the singing voice from the musical accompaniments, which can be used as a pre-processing step for many music related applications. The second project is about learning from massive collection of MIDI files to generate multi-track music by a generative adversarial network (GAN). The generative model can be used for generating music either from scratch, or by accompanying a given (instrument) track. The third project is about creating an AI DJ that knows how to manipulate, sample, and sequence musical pieces to create a personalized playlist. The goal of these projects is to enrich the way people create and interact with music in their daily lives, using the latest machine learning (deep learning) techniques. (Slide)

Self-Contained Style Transfer and Saliency-Guided Image Manipulation

Abstract
     While deep learning approaches have demonstrated impressive results in a wide variety of computer vision and image processing tasks, in this talk I will introduce two recent works from my research groups which "hack" two important and practical deep models of image style transfer and saliency estimation. In the first work, self-contained style transfer, we integrate the power of steganogaphy into style transfer in order to resolve the issues originated from the content inconsistency between the original image and its stylized output, thus achieve reverse and serial style transfer. For the second work, we tackle the problem of saliency-guided image manipulation for adjusting the saliency distribution over image regions, which has potential applications in human-computer interaction, autonomous driving, or advertisement with needs for highlighting the specific regions or objects. We aim to view the models and tasks from different perspectives in order to discover more interesting, unique but practical problems. (Slide)
