Guidelines for Human-AI Interaction
This work proposes 18 generally applicable design guidelines for human-AI interaction that can serve as a resource to practitioners working on the design of applications and features that harness AI technologies, and to researchers interested in the further development of human- AI interaction design principles.
Geographic and Temporal Trends in Fake News Consumption During the 2016 US Presidential Election
An analysis of traffic to websites known for publishing fake news in the months preceding the 2016 US presidential election finds that social media was the primary outlet for the circulation of fake news stories and aggregate voting patterns were strongly correlated with the average daily fraction of users visiting websites serving fake news.
Characterizing the usability of interactive applications through query log analysis
This paper introduces CUTS and describes an automated process for harvesting, ordering, labeling, filtering, and grouping search queries related to a given product that can be assembled in minutes, is timely, has a high degree of ecological validity, and is arguably less prone to self-selection bias than data gathered via traditional usability methods.
Exploring the Role of Conversational Cues in Guided Task Support with Virtual Assistants
The role of implicit conversational cues in guided task completion scenarios is explored and a set of design implications for the design of guided task experiences in contemporary conversational assistants are presented.
Understanding the Needs of Searchers with Dyslexia
Differences in behaviors and preferences between dyslexic and non-dyslexic searchers are demonstrated, and it is indicated that factoring readability into search engine rankings and/or interfaces may benefit both dyslexi andnon-d Dyslexic users.
NL-EDIT: Correcting Semantic Parse Errors through Natural Language Interaction
NL-EDIT is presented, a model for interpreting natural language feedback in the interaction context to generate a sequence of edits that can be applied to the initial parse to correct its errors, and can boost the accuracy of existing text-to-SQL parsers by up to 20% with only one turn of correction.
Query-feature graphs: bridging user vocabulary and system functionality
This paper introduces query-feature graphs, or QF-graphs, and shows that the associations produced by the approach exhibit levels of accuracy that make them eminently usable in a range of real-world applications.
Characterizing the Internet Research Agency’s Social Media Operations During the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election using Linguistic Analyses
Converging investigations on the part of multiple agencies/agents have provided overwhelming evidence for Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. As a part (and consequence) of
Constructing Face Image Logs that are Both Complete and Concise
Experimental results demonstrate that face logs constructed in this manner generally contain fewer than 5% of all detected faces, yet these faces are of high quality, and they represent all individuals detected in the video sequence.
VERSE: Bridging Screen Readers and Voice Assistants for Enhanced Eyes-Free Web Search
People with visual impairments often rely on screen readers when interacting with computer systems. Increasingly, these individuals also make extensive use of voice-based virtual assistants (VAs). We
