IUI 2013: ACM International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces
March 19-22, 2013 - Santa Monica, CA USA

IUI 2013 is the 18th annual meeting of the intelligent interfaces
community and serves as the principal international forum for
reporting outstanding research and development on intelligent user
interfaces. We invite researchers from academia, nonprofit
organizations, industry and practitioners of the trade.


Human Computation: A Broad Perspective (Edith Law)
Human computation is the study of systems where humans perform a major
part of the computation or are an integral part of the overall
computational system. With the growth of the web, human computation
systems, e.g., Games With A Purpose (the ESP Game), crowdsourcing
marketplaces (Amazon Mechanical Turk, oDesk), and identity
verification tasks (reCaptcha), can now leverage the abilities of an
unprecedented number of people to solve complex problems that are
beyond the scope of existing AI algorithms.
The first half of the tutorial is an extended version of the AAAI 2011
tutorial, which highlights the core research questions in human
computation, discusses the design of mechanisms, algorithms and
interfaces for tackling each of these questions, and outlines the
emerging topics and recent developments in the field. The second half
of the tutorial provides a broader perspective of human computation,
by drawing connections to other models of computation that involve
humans in the loop, such as interactive machine learning, learning by
demonstration/imitation, mixed initiative learning, complementary
computing, and active learning from human oracles, etc. We expect
participants to leave with a bird's eye view of the research
landscape, as well as some tools to begin their own investigations.

Knowledge Acquisition from the Web & Social Media (Zornitsa Kozareva)
Automatically building the Encyclopedia of the World, that contains
not only high-level information such as found in Wikipedia, but also
particular facts such as "Who appeared in a concert in the Hollywood
Bowl last night?" or "What causes tumors to shrink?" is a challenging
problem, which was never solved despite many have worked on it. This
tutorial will provide an overview of state-of-the-art and recent
methods for information gathering, sifting and organization that can
rapidly, accurately and completely cover any area of interest mining
unstructured texts on the Web and social media. The algorithms
automatically acquire semantic classes, instances and a diverse set of
relations that interlink them. The tutorial will also teach the
audience about the strengths, limitations and challenges of the field
and will touch upon natural language applications, which use the
extracted knowledge.
