Microsoft Academic Graph: When experts are not enough
TLDR
The design, schema, and technical and business motivations behind MAG are described and how MAG can be used in analytics, search, and recommendation scenarios are elaborated. Expand
A Review of Microsoft Academic Services for Science of Science Studies
TLDR
The use of three key AI technologies that underlies its prowess in capturing scholarly communications with adequate quality and broad coverage are focused on, including a reinforcement learning approach to assessing scholarly importance for entities participating in scholarly communications, called the saliency, that serves both as an analytic and a predictive metric in MAS.

A Scalable Hybrid Research Paper Recommender System for Microsoft Academic
TLDR
There is a strong correlation between participant scores and the similarity rankings produced by the large scale hybrid paper recommender system but that additional focus needs to be put towards improving recommender precision, particularly for content based recommendations. Expand
A stick-slip omnidirectional powertrain for low-cost swarm robotics: Mechanism, calibration, and control
TLDR
An omnidirectional powertrain for swarm robotic platforms that relies on low-cost vibration motors that overcomes differences in manufacturing by a hardware-in-the-loop auto-calibration routine based on the Nelder-Mead algorithm. Expand
A Response Threshold Sigmoid Function Model for Swarm Robot Collaboration
TLDR
It is shown that the slope of the response threshold function can be used to control the variance of group size, allowing agents to trade off deterministic team size with coordination speed, and making the proposed mechanism applicable to a variety of applications. Expand
Modeling multi-robot task allocation with limited information as global game
TLDR
By formulating task allocation as a global game, it is shown that continuous response threshold functions used for communication-free task assignment result in system level Bayesian Nash equilibria, suggesting a reason for their prevalence in nature and motivating their use in an engineering context.

Mitigating Biases in CORD-19 for Analyzing COVID-19 Literature
TLDR
The results suggest that while CORD-19 exhibits a strong tilt toward recent and topically focused articles, the knowledge being explored to attack the pandemic encompasses a much longer time span and is very interdisciplinary. Expand
