Sharmi Dev Gupta

PhD Researcher

Hello everyone, I am a PhD student under the supervision of Prof. Barry O’Sullivan and am currently working on Ethics in AI. My interests include Counterfactual explanations in AI, NLP, configuration systems, constraint programming, recommender systems etc. Some of my published work includes
1. Dev Gupta, S., Genc, B. and O’Sullivan, B. (2021) ‘Explanation in Constraint Satisfaction: A Survey’, JCAI 2021: Proceedings of the Thirtieth International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence, Montreal, Canada. Virtual Event, 17-27 August, pp. 4400-4407. doi:10.24963/ijcai.2021/601
2. Finding Counterfactual Explanations through Constraint Relaxations, Sharmi Dev Gupta, Beg¨um Genc, Barry O’Sullivan. Explainable Agency in Artificial Intelligence Workshop 36th AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence, February 28-March 1 2022.

4. A Semantic Search Pipeline for Causality-driven Adhoc Information Retrieval, Dhairya Dalal, Sharmi Dev Gupta and Bentolhoda Binaei. Causality-driven Adhoc Information Retrieval (CAIR-2021) shared task.
I am currently working towards building a user-friendly system for providing counterfactual explanation and maximally relaxed solutions for constraint satisfaction problems. I am interested in learning and working in multiple domains in Artificial Intelligence. Apart from academics I am interested in learning martial arts and am currently learning various self-defence techniques, I would also like to travel all across the world and experience different cultures.
