How to Talk to Strangers: generating medical reports for first time users

Conference Proceeding
Gkatzia, D., Rieser, V., & Lemon, O. (2016)
How to Talk to Strangers: generating medical reports for first time users. In 2016 IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (FUZZ-IEEE)https://doi.org/10.1109/FUZZ-IEEE.2016.7737739
We propose a novel approach for handling first-time users in the context of automatic report generation from timeseries data in the health domain. Handling first-time users is...

Natural Language Generation enhances human decision-making with uncertain information.

Conference Proceeding
Gkatzia, D., Lemon, O., & Rieser, V. (2016)
Natural Language Generation enhances human decision-making with uncertain information. In Proceedings of the 54th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics, (264-268). https://doi.org/10.18653/v1/P16-2043
Decision-making is often dependent on uncertain data, e.g. data associated with confidence scores or probabilities. We present a comparison of different information presentati...
