Communication is the universal solvent: atreya bot - an interactive bot for chemical scientists

  title={Communication is the universal solvent: atreya bot - an interactive bot for chemical scientists},
  author={Mahak Sharma and Abhishek Kaushik and Rajesh Kumar and Sushant Rai and Harshada Hanumant Desai and Sargam Yadav},
Conversational agents are a recent trend in human-computer interaction, deployed in multidisciplinary applications to assist the users. In this paper, we introduce "Atreya", an interactive bot for chemistry enthusiasts, researchers, and students to study the ChEMBL database. Atreya is hosted by Telegram, a popular cloud-based instant messaging application. This user-friendly bot queries the ChEMBL database, retrieves the drug details for a particular disease, targets associated with that drug… Expand

Figures from this paper


Conversational Agent Research Toolkit
An overview of the tool is provided, the role of computational methods in enabling research with conversational agents is discussed, and a step-by- step tutorial of to design an experiment with a chatbot is provided. Expand
ChEMBL web services: streamlining access to drug discovery data and utilities
The ChEMBL database curates and stores standardized bioactivity, molecule, target and drug data extracted from multiple sources, including the primary medicinal chemistry literature, is now a well-established resource in the fields of drug discovery and medicinal chemistry research. Expand
Wizard of Oz Interface to Study System Initiative for Conversational Search
A Wizard of Oz system, a WebApp, which is used to study how a conversational search system should take the initiative when engaging with users during collaborative search and integrates directly into Slack, a chat-messaging platform where users will collaborate. Expand
An Interface for Agent Supported Conversational Search
A prototype multi-view search interface is introduced which combines a conversational search assistant with an extended standard graphical search interface, and is an inefficient means of engagement for more complex or exploratory queries. Expand
A Theoretical Framework for Conversational Search
This paper studies conversational approaches to information retrieval, presenting a theory and model of information interaction in a chat setting, and shows that while theoretical, the model could be practically implemented to satisfy the desirable properties presented. Expand
Dialogue-Based Information Retrieval
This PhD Research project seeks to make progress toward realizing the vision of conversational search systems, in terms of query entry, interaction to locate relevant content, and engaging with the system output. Expand
DCU at the FIRE 2020 Retrieval from Conversational Dialogues (RCD) task
A combination of techniques to identify the key topics of dialogues and the standard BM25 algorithm to retrieve potentially relevant paragraphs from an indexed Wikipedia archive to retrieve relevant information to queries focused on these key topics extracted from a transcript of the movie dialogues. Expand
ChEMBL: towards direct deposition of bioassay data
Several important improvements have been made to ChEMBL in the last two years, including more robust capture and representation of assay details; a new data deposition system, allowing updating of data sets and deposition of supplementary data; and a completely redesigned web interface, with enhanced search and filtering capabilities.

A controlled Web search experiment demonstrates that changes in dynamic cognitive load can be detected within search tasks and explores the distribution of load across search task stages. Expand
A Conceptual Framework for Implicit Evaluation of Conversational Search Interfaces
This work introduces evaluation criteria and proposes their use in a framework for the evaluation of CS systems, which includes multiple dimensions: search experience, knowledge gain, software usability, cognitive load and user experience. Expand
