Events

The Nuance Research Conference (NRC) is a collaborative event for researchers to exchange findings, debate and learn from one another. NRC brings together some of the brightest minds who are actively working to build and hone the intelligent systems that are enabling a more human conversation with technology each and every day. With such a geographically dispersed research team, NRC allows researchers to talk, plan, debate, and make connections with people they don’t see day-to-day. And often, new research initiatives come up as a result of the side conversations that occur.

This year’s NRC 2017 will be held in Cambridge, MA, Mar 12-15. It is company internal, but we will publish a summary – stay tuned

The Standard ML Family Project

The Standard ML Family project provides a home for online versions of various formal definitions of Standard ML, including the “Definition of Standard ML, Revised” (Standard ML 97). The site also supports coordination between different implementations of the Standard ML (SML) programming language by maintaining common resources such as the documentation for the Standard ML Basis Library and standard test suites. The goal is to increase compatibility and resource sharing between Standard ML implementations.

The Atoms of Neural Computation

Bill Jarrold will host Gary Marcus in a discussion about The Atoms of Neural Computation on Thursday 11/13 at 10 am PST.

An Architecture for Intelligence Using Prototypes, Composition and Analogy

Vinay Chaudhri will speak on 11/12/14 at 11 PST in the Sunnyvale Conference room 201.

An Always-On Companion for Isolated Older Adults, Candy Sidner

In this talk I summarize the status of the ongoing AlwaysOn project to develop and evaluate a virtual agent/robot companion for isolated older adults. I will provide a short video of the working system, and discuss several novel scientific issues of the project: embodiment as virtual agent or robot, the interaction paradigm, engagement between agent and user, development of long term relationships between user and agent, and the real-time system architecture. The system architecture is extensible and handles real-time at several time scales. The system supports multiple activities, including discussing the weather, playing cards, telling stories, exercise coaching and video conferencing. I will conclude with a discussion of a month long study involving the AlwaysOn system in the homes of isolated older adults.
