    The authors analyze three critical components in training word embeddings: model, corpus, and training parameters. They systematize existing neural-network-based word embedding methods and experimentally compare them using the same corpus. They then evaluate each word embedding in three ways: analyzing its semantic properties, using it as a feature for supervised tasks, and using it to initialize ... View full abstract»

    Regular expressions are routinely used in a variety of different application domains. But building a regular expression involves a considerable amount of skill, expertise, and creativity. In this work, the authors investigate whether a machine can surrogate these qualities and automatically construct regular expressions for tasks of realistic complexity. They discuss a large-scale experiment invol... View full abstract»

    VANET (vehicular ad hoc network) is used to create communication networks for vehicles or other roadside devices so that they can quickly share and receive messages. However, VANET belongs to a family of wireless networks, which means that its functions are unsafe. To provide safe communication channels, key-agreements technology can be introduced to VANET communication. Traditional key-agreement ... View full abstract»

    The combination of biological and artificial intelligence is a promising methodology to construct a novel intelligent modality, proposed as cyborg intelligence. The hierarchical conceptual framework is based on the interaction and combination of comparable components of biological cognitive units and computing intelligent units. The authors extend the previous conceptual framework and focus on sen... View full abstract»

    Socially sensitive decisions about critical issues such as employment, credit scoring, or insurance premiums are increasingly automated based on big data mining. Although algorithms do not have personal preferences, they are not neutral, and the data itself can reflect various undesirable biases. The authors discuss how discrimination-aware data mining constitutes a crucial step to counter automat... View full abstract»

    A troublesome issue in the development of intelligent systems is the question of how many experts are sufficient for knowledge elicitation or cognitive task analysis. This essay reviews the methods used in determining sample size in psychology and statistics. The review raises questions about our concepts of statistical versus practical significance. The authors present a pragmatic rule for determ... View full abstract»
