Cynthia Rudin presents “Simpler Models Exist and How Can We Find Them?” at the AI Seminar (December 4, 2020). The Artificial Intelligence (AI) Seminar is a weekly meeting at the University of Alberta where researchers interested in AI can share their research. Presenters include both local speakers from the University of Alberta and visitors from other institutions. Topics related in any way to artificial intelligence, from foundational theoretical work to innovative applications of AI techniques to new fields and problems, are explored. Bio: Cynthia Rudin is a professor of computer science, electrical and computer engineering, and statistical science at Duke University. Previously, Prof. Rudin held positions at MIT, Columbia, and NYU. Her degrees are from the University at Buffalo and Princeton University. She is a three-time winner of the INFORMS Innovative Applications in Analytics Award. She has served on committees for INFORMS, the National Academies, the American Statistical Association, DARPA, the NIJ, and AAAI. She is a fellow of both the American Statistical Association and Institute of Mathematical Statistics. She was a Thomas Langford Lecturer at Duke University for 2019-2020. Abstract: While the trend in machine learning has tended towards more complex hypothesis spaces, it is not clear that this extra complexity is always necessary or helpful for many domains. In particular, models and their predictions are often made easier to understand by adding interpretability constraints. These constraints shrink the hypothesis space; that is, they make the model simpler. Statistical learning theory suggests that generalization may be improved as a [More]

However, around 80% of available information exists as unstructured text, and conventional keyword searches only retrieve documents, which still have to be read. This is very time consuming, unreliable, and, when important decisions rest on it, costly. Linguamatics’ text mining solution, I2E, uses Natural Language Processing to identify and extract relevant knowledge at least 10 times faster than conventional search, often uncovering insights that would otherwise remain unknown. I2E analyses the meaning of the text using powerful linguistic algorithms, enabling you to ask open questions, find the relevant facts and identify valuable connections. Going beyond simple keywords, I2E can recognise concepts and the different ways the same thing can be expressed, increasing the recall of relevant information. I2E then presents high quality results as structured, actionable knowledge, enabling fast review and analysis, and providing dramatically improved speed to insight.
