Key-Value Retrieval Networks for Task-Oriented Dialogue
TLDR
We introduce the Key-Value Retrieval Network, a highly performant neural taskoriented dialogue agent that is able to smoothly incorporate information from underlying knowledge bases through a novel key-value retrieval mechanism. Expand

A geometric refinement of a theorem of Chekanov
We prove a conjecture of Barraud and Cornea in the monotone setting, refining a result of Chekanov on the Hofer distance between two Hamiltonian isotopic Lagrangian submanifolds.

ACTIVE CONTROL OF SOUND RADIATION FROM A PLATE USING A POLYVINYLIDENE FLUORIDE VOLUME DISPLACEMENT SENSOR
This paper presents a new volume displacement sensor (made of shaped strips of PVDF film) and the experimental implementation of this sensor in an active control system. A design strategy for a PVDFExpand

Archaeology: High tech from Ancient Greece
The Antikythera Mechanism, salvaged 100 years ago from an ancient shipwreck, was long known to be some sort of mechanical calendar. But modern analysis is only now revealing just how sophisticated itExpand

Dynamic Effects of Piezoelectric Actuators on the Vibrational Response of a Plate
This paper presents an analytical model and an experimental study for the response of plates actuated by piezoceramic elements. The variational approach with Hamilton's principle is used to developExpand

Minimization of sound radiation from plates using adaptive tuned vibration absorbers
Abstract Vibration absorbers have widely been used to minimize the vibration of structures, either globally for rigid structures or locally for flexible structures. This paper presents novelExpand

The importance of the face plate as part of an engineered holistic ground support scheme in dynamic conditions
Ground support schemes consist of surface support systems that contact the excavation boundary and a reinforcement system embedded into the rock mass. Under static conditions, these systems can workExpand
