Tianxiao Shen presents, "Language Style Transfer"

 

Abstract: Recent advances in text generation tasks such as machine translation and summarization rely on the use of massive amounts of parallel data, which is costly to collect or nonexistent in many scenarios. In this talk, I will present a novel model to perform style transfer on the basis of non-parallel text. This is an instance of a broad family of problems including machine translation, decipherment, and sentiment modification. I will talk about how we deal with the challenge to...

Title: “Interesting early results in data science that require new statistical methods”

 

Abstract: In the brave new world of biomedical data science, new sources of data emerge seemingly every year from Twitter to genomes to weather to drug habits and/or doctor preferences.  I will outline several interesting and apparently impactful findings that have emerged as a result of analyses of these data, both individually and...

Using Aggregated Relational Data to Feasibly Identify Network Structure without Network Data with Arun Chandrasekhar, Tyler McCormick and Mengjie Pan

 

Abstract. Social network data is often prohibitively expensive to collect, limiting empirical network research. Typical economic network mapping requires (1) enumerating a census, (2) eliciting the names of all...
