Work Objectives:
The goal of MAIA is to develop multilingual AI agents for customer support. The work done in this project will be developed at IT in collaboration with Unbabel, CMU, and INESC-ID. There are three tasks (related to Activity 3 in the project): - Develop new latent structured models for discrete data. These models should cope with discrete latent variables or generate discrete data. This will allow an efficient and compact representation of the context of the conversation, leading to compact and data-efficient models, with fewer parameters than current state-of-the-art neural network models for language generation. These models will be applied to machine translation and response generation. - Investigate methods based on sparse attention mechanisms to achieve explainability and return confidence scores about models' predictions. This will help human agents that work collaboratively with language generation systems, and, in machine translation, it will enable the use of active learning strategies to decide which data to request human translations for supervision. These methods will be used to incorporate conversational feedback and for conversational quality estimation. - Investigate methods for reducing the need for labeled data. These methods will leverage unlabeled data, such as monolingual text, which will used to pre-train parts of the network and help the target task via transfer learning. In addition, we will explore connections to the previous task by using latent variables to learn representations form the unlabeled data
