Local graph clustering methods are used to find small- and medium-scale clusters without traversing the graph. It has been shown that the combination of the Approximate Personalized PageRank (APPR) algorithm and the sweep method can efficiently detect a small cluster around the starting vertex.

Voice-based assistants have become a popular tool for conducting web search, particularly for factoid question answering. However, for more complex web searches their functionality remains limited, as does our understanding of the ways in which searchers can best interact with audio-based search results.

One challenge that faces most extraction tools is the long tail of information. Entities that lie in the long tail do not have enough mentions in the text, limiting their relevant context. The absence of enough repetition restricts the extraction of property values with high confidence.

Artificial intelligence (AI) assistants for clinical decision making show increasing promise in medicine. However, medical assessments can be contentious, leading to expert disagreement. This raises the question of how AI assistants should be designed to handle the classification of ambiguous cases.

Reinforcement learning (RL) is a powerful tool for developing intelligent agents, and the use of neural networks makes RL techniques more scalable to challenging real-world applications, from task-oriented dialogue systems to autonomous driving. However, one of the major bottlenecks to the adoption of RL is efficiency, as it often takes many time steps to learn an acceptable policy.
