In the present study, we quantify entrainment characteristics of conversation with the aim of automatic assessment of the severity of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). We focus on pairs of utterances immediate before and after turn-takings, which have prosodic/acoustic similarities.


A session-based news recommender system recommends the next news to a user by modeling the potential interests embedded in a sequence of news read/clicked by her/him in a session. Generally, a user's interests are diverse, namely there are multiple interests corresponding to different types of news, e.g., news of distinct topics, within a session. However, most of existing methods typically overlook such important characteristic and thus fail to distinguish and model the potential multiple interests of a user, impeding accurate recommendation of the next piece of news.
