This demo presents VirtualCrowd, a simulation platform for crowdsourcing campaigns. The platform allows the design, configuration, step-by-step execution, and analysis of customized tasks, worker profiles, and crowdsourcing strategies. The platform will be demonstrated through a crowd-mapping example in two cities, which will highlight the...

Cameras are ubiquitous nowadays and video analytic systems have been widely used in surveillance, traffic control, business intelligence and autonomous driving. Some applications, e.g., detecting road congestion in traffic monitoring, require continuous and timely reporting of complex patterns. However, conventional complex event processing ...

Up-to-date listings of retail stores and related building functions are challenging and costly to maintain. We introduce a novel method for automatically detecting, geo-locating, and classifying retail stores and related commercial functions, on the basis of storefronts extracted from street-level imagery. Specifically, we present a deep...

In online crowd mapping, crowd workers recruited through crowdsourcing marketplaces collect geographic data. Compared to traditional mapping methods, where workers physically explore the area, the benefit of using online crowd mapping is the potential to be cost-effective and time-efficient. Previous studies have focused on mapping urban objects...

The trend of remote work leads to the prosperity of crowdsourcing marketplaces. In crowdsourcing marketplaces, online workers can select their preferable tasks and then complete them to get paid, while requesters design and publish tasks to acquire their desirable data. The standard user interface of the crowdsourcing task is the web page,...

Social media provides a timely yet challenging data source for adverse drug reaction (ADR) detection. Existing dictionary-based, semi-supervised learning approaches are intrinsically limited by the coverage and maintainability of laymen health vocabularies. In this paper, we introduce a data augmentation approach that leverages variational...

The study of learning is grounded in theories and research. Since learning is complex and not directly observable, it is often inferred by collecting and analysing data based on the things learners do or say. By virtue, theories are developed from the analyses of data collected. With the proliferation of technology, large amounts of data are...

Knowledge about the organization of the main physical elements (e.g. streets) and objects (e.g. trees) that structure cities is important in the maintenance of city infrastructure and the planning of future urban interventions. In this paper, a novel approach to crowd-mapping urban objects is proposed. Our method capitalizes on strategies for...

Dialog agents, like digital assistants and automated chat interfaces (e.g., chatbots), are becoming more and more popular as users adapt to conversing with their devices as they do with humans. In this paper, we present approaches and available tools for dialog management (DM), a component of dialog agents that handles dialog context and...

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) allow learning to take place anytime and anywhere with little external monitoring by teachers. Characteristically, highly diverse groups of learners enrolled in MOOCs are required to make decisions related to their own learning activities to achieve academic success. Therefore, it is considered important to...

A chatbot is an example of a text-based conversational agent. While natural language understanding and machine learning techniques advance rapidly, current fully automated chatbots still struggle to serve their users well. Human intelligence, brought by crowd workers, freelancers or even full-time employees can be embodied in the chatbot logic...

We present LearningQ, a challenging educational question generation dataset containing over 230K document-question pairs. It includes 7K instructor-designed questions assessing knowledge concepts being taught and 223K learner-generated questions seeking in-depth understanding of the taught concepts. We show that, compared to existing datasets...

Named Entity Recognition and Typing (NER/NET) is a challenging task, especially with long-tail entities such as the ones found in scientific publications. These entities (e.g. “WebKB”, “StatSnowball”) are rare, often relevant only in specific knowledge domains, yet important for retrieval and exploration purposes. State-of-the-art NER approaches...

This paper applies theory and methodology from the learning design literature to large-scale learning environments through quantitative modeling of the structure and design of Massive Open Online Courses. For two institutions of higher education, we automate the task of encoding pedagogy and learning design principles for 177 courses (which...

Taking advantage of the vast history of theoretical and empirical findings in the learning literature we have inherited, this research offers a synthesis of prior findings in the domain of empirically evaluated active learning strategies in digital learning environments. The primary concern of the present study is to evaluate these findings with...

This demo presents SmartPub, a novel web-based platform that supports the exploration and visualization of shallow meta-data (e.g., author list, keywords) and deep meta-data--long tail named entities which are rare, and often relevant only in specific knowledge domain--from scientific publications. The platform collects documents from different...

Past research in large-scale learning environments has found one of the most inhibiting factors to learners’ success to be their inability to effectively self-regulate their learning efforts. In traditional small-scale learning environments, personalized feedback (on progress, content, behavior, etc.) has been found to be an effective solution...

City-scale events attract large amounts of attendees in temporarily re-purposed urban environments. In this setting, the real-time measurement of the density of attendees stationing in – or moving through – the event terrain is central to applications such as crowd management, emergency support, and quality of service...

Knowledge tracing serves as a keystone in delivering personalized education. However, few works attempted to model students’ knowledge state in the setting of Second Language Acquisition. The Duolingo Shared Task on Second Language Acquisition Modeling (Settles et al., 2018) provides students’ trace data that we extensively analyze and engineer...

Large-scale online learning environments such as MOOCs provide an opportunity to evaluate the efficacy of learning strategies in an informal learning context with a diverse learner population. Here, we evaluate the extent to which retrieval practice — recognized as one of the most effective learning strategies — facilitates long-term knowledge...
