I will be given a talk at the IT University of Copenhagen about “The user and the machine: Blending database and machine learning for smarter devices.”
Can a system discover what a user wants circumventing complex search languages? Can a system answer future enquiries without accessing the data again? In this talk, I will introduce two recent results that build upon machine learning and database techniques to learn user preferences as fast as possible with the fewest number of interactions with the user.
In particular, I will focus on techniques that exploit system approximations of user preferences to learn real user preferences more efficiently and effectively. Then, I will introduce a different perspective on querying which removes the need to access the database globally by learning a small, informative summary on the user device.”
Thanks ITU for giving me this opportunity!
