Dongkuan (DK) Xu is an Assistant Professor in the CS Department at NC State and leads the NCSU Generative Intelligent Computing Lab. His research is fundamentally grounded in exploring and advancing Landed Generative AI, with particular emphasis on studying the autonomy of intelligent agents (tools, chains, tasks), decision/reasoning reliability (alignment, uncertainty, adaptability, robustness), and resource efficiency (data utilization, computation, parameter optimization) in Generative AI (ChatGPT, GPT-X, Diffusion Models) Systems. DK’s research has been published repeatedly in top conferences and journals in AI, NLP, CV, Hardware, and other fields. He serves as the Column Editor for ACM SIGAI Newsletter, chairs The First Workshop on DL-Hardware Co-Design for AI Acceleration with AAAI 2023, and co-chairs The Resource-Efficient Learning for Knowledge Discovery Workshop with KDD 2023. He has served as session chair for New Deep Learning Architectures, and for Scalable & Trustable AI at KDD 2022, and has served as a (senior) PC member and regular reviewer for over 30 major conferences and 16 journals. In addition, he has launched the Machine Learning Algorithms & Natural Language Processing community. DK also has extensive research experience in industry. He has been collaborating with Microsoft Research, Google Research, Moffett AI, and NEC labs America, and holds 10 US patents/applications. DK's long-term research goal is to liberate AI productivity and democratize its application to serve a broader range of populations and real-world applications, equally, sustainably, and responsibly.
Sculpting the Future of Collective Growth in Collaborative AI: Gentopia.AI Meets ReWOO
As the scope and complexity of tasks that AI can address continue to grow, the need for collaborative multi-agent systems becomes increasingly crucial. Yet, creating an environment where specialized and generalist agents can efficiently collaborate has remained a considerable challenge. This talk unveils Gentopia.AI (https://github.com/Gentopia-AI/Gentopia), a pioneering platform designed to facilitate agent collaboration for collective growth across diverse scenarios. We introduce the concept of Gentopia.AI as an enabler for synergistic interactions among various AI agents and delve into its composition and collaboration features. To illustrate the efficacy of Gentopia.AI, we present ReWOO (https://github.com/billxbf/ReWOO)—a groundbreaking methodology that drastically improves token efficiency and accuracy in augmented language models. Through ReWOO, we showcase how Gentopia.AI fosters environments conducive to innovations that not only reduce redundancy but also scale effectively. This talk aims to inspire a new wave of research and development focused on maximizing the collective growth of intelligent systems in a collaborative ecosystem.
Jianxun Lian is now a senior researcher at Microsoft Research Asia. He received his Ph.D. degree from University of Science and Technology of China in 2018. His research interests include recommender systems and AI agents. He has published 30+ academic papers on top-tier international conferences such as KDD, ACL, WWW, and SIGIR. He actively contributes as a program committee member for prestigious conferences such as AAAI, WWW, and IJCAI.
