Each week, a number of readings will be assigned. You must read all of the papers, as well as the book chapter, and submit reading summaries each week. Reading summaries will be submitted as a Post via Slack.
The summary for each paper and book chapter should consist of answers to the following questions:
- What research problems were the authors investigating?
- How did the authors attempt to answer these questions? Did they succeed?
- What follow-on possibilities do you see?
The Slack Post is a single text box, but we will usually have multiple readings. Therefore, you should format your readings as follows:
Title of the first reading 1. Answer to question 1 2. Answer to question 2 3. Answer to question 3 ---- Title of the second reading 1. Answer to question 1 2. Answer to question 2 3. Answer to question 3 ---- Title of the third reading 1. Answer to question 1 2. Answer to question 2 3. Answer to question 3
Example reading summary
Gaze Enhanced Speech Recognition
1. The authors wanted to find out if they could improve the accuracy of speech recognition by incorporating gaze tracking. By understanding what the user has looked at, they theorize that they can restrict the speech recognizer's language model.
2. The authors ran a study to collect eye gaze data in conjunction with speech-based navigation of an interface, and then they used this information to adapt a speech recognition engine to use they eye gaze data. Their method worked well, achieving a 10% improvement in errors.
3. The authors only considered a static situation, reading a web page. It would be interesting to try to do the same task in a more realistic scenario, by having users interact with objects in the environment by looking at them.
