American residents in the (Nigerian, Liberian, Indian, Ghanaian, etc.) Diaspora have strong ties back home and as such support loved ones, back home, on a regular basis, by sending cash remittances through Western Union, MoneyGram, etc. Remittances are expensive. Remitters have no control over how funds are spent once received. Remitters cannot send small amounts because the fees cannot be justified. We built a marketplace platform that allows the Diaspora to remit goods and services, instead of sending money to relatives back home in. The objectives are to remove or greatly reduce the cost of remittances, give more control to …


Gr-241 On Training Explainable Neurons, Lance Kennedy 2022 Kennesaw State University

Gr-241 On Training Explainable Neurons, Lance Kennedy

C-Day Computing Showcase

Neural networks have become increasingly powerful and commonplace tools for guiding decision-making. However, due to the black-box nature of many of these networks, it is often difficult to understand exactly what guides them to a certain prediction, making them dangerous to use for sensitive decision making, and making it difficult to ensure confidence in their output. For instance, a network which classifies images of dogs and cats may turn out to be flawed with little consequence, but a neural network that diagnoses the presence of diseases should be assured to make sound predictions. By understanding why a network makes the …

A Unified Dialogue User Simulator For Few-Shot Data Augmentation, Dazhen Wan, Zheng Zhang, Qi Zhu, Lizi Liao, Minlie Huang

Research Collection School Of Computing and Information Systems

Pre-trained language models have shown superior performance in task-oriented dialogues. However, existing datasets are on limited scales, which cannot support large-scale pre-training. Fortunately, various data augmentation methods have been developed to augment largescale task-oriented dialogue corpora. However, they heavily rely on annotated data in the target domain, which require a tremendous amount of data collection and human labeling work. In this paper, we build a unified dialogue user simulation model by pre-training on several publicly available datasets. The model can then be tuned on a target domain with fewshot data. The experiments on a target dataset across multiple domains show …


Non-Localized Physical Processes Can Help Speed Up Computations, Be It Hidden Variables In Quantum Physics Or Non-Localized Energy In General Relativity, Michael Zakharevich, Olga Kosheleva, Vladik Kreinovich 2022 SeeCure Systems, Inc.

Non-Localized Physical Processes Can Help Speed Up Computations, Be It Hidden Variables In Quantum Physics Or Non-Localized Energy In General Relativity, Michael Zakharevich, Olga Kosheleva, Vladik Kreinovich

Departmental Technical Reports (CS)

While most physical processes are localized -- in the sense that each event can only affect events in its close vicinity -- many physicists believe that some processes are non-local. These beliefs range from more heretic -- such as hidden variables in quantum physics -- to more widely accepted, such as the non-local character of energy in General Relativity. In this paper, we attract attention to the fact that non-local processes bring in the possibility of drastically speeding up computations.


How Viscosity Of An Asphalt Binder Depends On Temperature: Theoretical Explanation Of An Empirical Dependence, Edgar Daniel Rodriguez Velasquez, Vladik Kreinovich 2022 Universidad de Piura in Peru (UDEP)

How Viscosity Of An Asphalt Binder Depends On Temperature: Theoretical Explanation Of An Empirical Dependence, Edgar Daniel Rodriguez Velasquez, Vladik Kreinovich

Departmental Technical Reports (CS)

Pavement must be adequate for all the temperatures, ranging from the winter cold to the summer heat. In particular, this means that for all possible temperatures, the viscosity of the asphalt binder must stay within the desired bounds. To predict how the designed pavement will behave under different temperatures, it is desirable to have a general idea of how viscosity changes with temperature. Pavement engineers have come up with an empirical approximate formula describing this change. However, since this formula is purely empirical, with no theoretical justification, practitioners are often somewhat reluctant to depend on this formula. In this paper, …


Graph Approach To Uncertainty Quantification, Hector A. Reyes, Cliff Joslyn, Vladik Kreinovich 2022 The University of Texas at El Paso

Graph Approach To Uncertainty Quantification, Hector A. Reyes, Cliff Joslyn, Vladik Kreinovich

Departmental Technical Reports (CS)

Traditional analysis of uncertainty of the result of data processing assumes that all measurement errors are independent. In reality, there may be common factor affecting these errors, so these errors may be dependent. In such cases, the independence assumption may lead to underestimation of uncertainty. In such cases, a guaranteed way to be on the safe side is to make no assumption about independence at all. In practice, however, we may have information that a few pairs of measurement errors are indeed independent -- while we still have no information about all other pairs. Alternatively, we may suspect that for …


Why In Mond -- Alternative Gravitation Theory -- A Specific Formula Works The Best: Complexity-Based Explanation, Olga Kosheleva, Vladik Kreinovich 2022 The University of Texas at El Paso

Why In Mond -- Alternative Gravitation Theory -- A Specific Formula Works The Best: Complexity-Based Explanation, Olga Kosheleva, Vladik Kreinovich

Departmental Technical Reports (CS)

Based on the rotation of the stars around a galaxy center, one can estimate the corresponding gravitational acceleration -- which turns out to be much larger than what Newton's theory predicts based on the masses of all visible objects. The majority of physicists believe that this discrepancy indicates the presence of "dark" matter, but this idea has some unsolved problems. An alternative idea -- known as Modified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND, for short) is that for galaxy-size distances, Newton's gravitation theory needs to be modified. One of the most effective versions of this idea uses so-called simple interpolating function. In this …


Analyzing Business-Focused Social Networks In Hiring: The Influence Of A Job Candidate's Network On A Recruiter's Hiring Recommendation, Hannah V. Kibby 2022 University of South Alabama

Analyzing Business-Focused Social Networks In Hiring: The Influence Of A Job Candidate's Network On A Recruiter's Hiring Recommendation, Hannah V. Kibby

Theses and Dissertations

Social media has altered the ways in which people interact. Business-focused social media profiles, such as those on LinkedIn, can act as a proxy for a traditional resume. However, these websites differ from a traditional resume in that information presented is sometimes informal, personal, and irrelevant to the member’s career. Furthermore, HR employees are able to view a job candidate’s social network. This research investigates the influence of a recruiter’s knowledge of an applicant’s professional network on the recruiter’s perception of the applicant’s trustworthiness and hence their willingness to take risk in the hiring relationship. A review of the literature …

Attention In The Faithful Self-Explanatory Nlp Models, Mostafa Rafaiejokandan 2022 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Attention In The Faithful Self-Explanatory Nlp Models, Mostafa Rafaiejokandan

Computer Science and Engineering: Theses, Dissertations, and Student Research

Deep neural networks (DNNs) can perform impressively in many natural language processing (NLP) tasks, but their black-box nature makes them inherently challenging to explain or interpret. Self-Explanatory models are a new approach to overcoming this challenge, generating explanations in human-readable languages besides task objectives like answering questions. The main focus of this thesis is the explainability of NLP tasks, as well as how attention methods can help enhance performance. Three different attention modules are proposed, SimpleAttention, CrossSelfAttention, and CrossModality. It also includes a new dataset transformation method called Two-Documents that converts every dataset into two separate documents required by the …
