Adobe Research is currently offering internships. To apply, please contact us with your CV, a list of your research interests, and any specific researchers you would like to work with.
Internships at Adobe Research are an excellent way for graduate students pursuing a Ph.D. to engage in industrial research. Interns work on exciting technology that is routinely published at top academic conferences and integrated into software that impacts the lives of millions of customers.
Apache Spark from the UC Berkeley AMPLab has gained significant traction as a next generation replacement for Hadoop and the Hadoop ecosystem technology stack. We investigated the feasibility and potential benefits of using GPUs to further accelerate the performance of Apache Spark. By analyzing the data-shuffling level of Spark operations, a guideline to determine operations which are compatible with GPU capabilities is established. Additionally, simple models to maximize performance are built by considering Spark data partitioning and GPU memory specifications.
The main goal of this project is to build and evaluate a robust dialog state tracker for voice-based computer systems. A dialog state tracker tracks what happened in a dialog by taking system outputs, user speech and context from previous turns and provide information for the system to decide what and how to respond to the user. We developed our system using the Dialog State Tracking Challenge 2015 (DSTC4) corpus. DSTC4 differentiates itself from the previous three editions as follows: the number of slot-value pairs present in the ontology is much larger, no spoken language understanding output is given, and utterances are labeled at the subdialog level. We developed a novel dialog state tracking method designed to work robustly under these conditions, using elaborate string matching, coreference resolution tailored for dialogs and a few other improvements.
Photo editing can be a challenging task, and it becomes even more difficult on the small, portable screens of mobile devices that are now frequently used to capture and edit images. To address this problem we present PixelTone, a multimodal photo editing interface that combines speech and direct manipulation. We observe existing image editing practices and derive a set of principles that guide our design.
