Current Research ActivitiesAt present, I am active in the following research projects:
- The GEM Benchmark Project — Investigating the evaluation of large language models.
- The ReproHum Project — Exploring the reproducibility of human evaluations in Natural Language Generation.
Past Research Work
Past research work at the University of Aberdeen involved the BabyTalk-Family (BT-Family) project. This used Natural Language Generation (NLG) technology to convert large sets of clinical neonatal patient data into automatic daily summaries for parents of babies in neonatal intensive care (NICU). This was done by using artificial intelligence and natural language technology to automatically analyse and summarise the information in a baby’s electronic patient record to produce reports focusing on matters of most interest to the parent. This work was based off a prototype that I developed during my PhD. BabyTalk-Family was successfully deployed and used by parents at the neonatal unit in Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh hospital during the research period.
