Fast direct solvers for elliptic partial differential equations

In many areas of science and engineering, the cost of solving a linear boundary value problem determines what can and cannot be modeled computationally.  In some cases, it is possible to recast the problem as an integral equation which sometimes leads to a reduction in the dimensionality of the problem.  Alternatively, the differential equation can be discretized directly with a finite element or finite difference method.  Either way, one is left with having to solve a large linear system. The computational cost of directly inverting the linear system via Gaussian elimination grows as O(N3) where N is the size of the system.   Due to recent developments (multigrid, FMM, FFT, etc.), there are “fast” methods for most of these linear systems of equations. By “fast,” we mean that the computational cost of solving the problem grows as O(N\logk N) where k is a small integer, normally k = 0, 1, or 2. Many “fast” schemes are based on iterative techniques that build a sequence of approximate solutions that converges to the exact solution and often require the use of a problem specific preconditioner. In this talk, we will present methods that “directly” invert the system by exploiting structure in the matrix with a cost that grows linearly (or nearly linearly) with the problem size. Such direct solvers are much faster for problems with multiple right-hand sides that arise frequently in applications.  This talk will highlight recently developed methods that increase the range of applicability of fast direct solvers.

Deep Learning for Creative Language Understanding
 
Creative language—the sort found in novels, film, and comics—contains a wide range of linguistic phenomena, from increased syntactic complexity (e.g., metaphors, sarcasm) to high-level discourse structures such as narrative and character arcs. In this talk, I explore how we can use deep learning to understand, generate, and answer questions about creative language. In particular, I present neural architectures for two different tasks involving creative language understanding: 1) modeling dynamic fictional relationships in novels and 2) predicting dialogue and artwork from comic book panels. I also propose a method to disentangle an author's writing style from the content of their words by strategically weakening parts of the network architecture. These tasks are motivated through quiz bowl, a trivia game that contains many questions about novels, paintings, and comics, for which I present deep models that are competitive with human players. I conclude by discussing future plans to build more engaging conversational agents by leveraging systems for creative language understanding and question answering.

CompSci Colloquium: Zhou Yu (Carnegie Mellon)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Situated Intelligent Interactive Systems

ABSTRACT: Communication is an intricate dance, an ensemble of coordinated individual actions. Imagine a future where machines interact with us like humans, waking us up in the morning, navigating us to work, or discussing our daily schedules in a coordinated and natural manner. Current interactive systems being developed by Apple, Google, Microsoft and Amazon attempt to reach this goal by combining a large set of single-task systems. But products like Siri, Google Now, Cortana and Echo still follow pre-specified agendas that cannot transition between tasks smoothly and track and adapt to different users naturally. Yu's research draws on recent developments in speech and natural language processing, human-computer interaction, and machine learning to work towards the goal of developing situated intelligent interactive systems. These systems can coordinate with users to achieve effective and natural interactions. She has successfully applied the proposed concepts to various tasks, such as social conversation, job interview training and movie promotion. Her team's proposal on engaging social conversation systems was selected to receive $100,000 from Amazon Inc. to compete in the Amazon Alexa Prize Challenge.

BIO: Zhou Yu is a graduating PhD student at the Language Technology Institute under School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University, working with Alan W. Black and Alexander I. Rudnicky. She interned with David Suendermann-Oeft in ETS San Francisco Office on cloud-based mulitmodal dialog systems in summer 2015 and summer 2016. In fall 2014, she interned with Dan Bohus and Eric Horvitz in Microsoft Research on human-robot interaction. Prior to CMU, Yu received a BS in computer science and a BA in linguistics from Zhejiang University in 2011. She worked with Xiaofei He and Deng Cai on machine learning and computer vision, and Yunhua Qu on machine translation.
