Loqui Human-Human Dialogue Corpus (Transcriptions and Annotations)

Rebecca Passonneau & Evaneet Sachar
The Loqui project investigated dialogue strategies that would depend less on accurate speech recognition and more on context. The testbed application, the CheckItOut dialogue system, was modeled on a corpus of telephone transactions between patrons and librarians that we collected at New York City’s Andrew Heiskell Braille & Talking Book Library in 2006. This data release contains transcriptions of the original telephone transactions of eighty two dialogues that were collected and used to inform the...

Niki Berg: Catalog of works

Niki Berg
I was the eldest of four children from a working class family in which curiosity and creativity were not valued. After high school I worked as a secretary in an advertising company. Ten years and two daughters later, my husband encouraged me to find and pursue a creative passion and this led me to photography. With camera in hand I found myself drawn to family relationships and the pivotal life events: birth, aging, illness and...

How will I be remembered? Conserving the Environment for Legacy’s Sake (Study Data)

Lisa Zaval, Ezra Markowitz & Elke U. Weber
Long time horizons and social distance are often viewed as key barriers to pro-environmental action due to intertemporal and interpersonal discounting, particularly in the case of climate change. We suggest that these challenges can be turned into opportunities by making salient relevant long-term goals and motives, thus shifting preferences for present-future and self-other trade-offs at the point of decision-making. Here we test whether individuals’ latent motivation to leave a positive legacy can be leveraged to...

Eva Deutsch Costabel: Catalog of works

Eva Deutsch Costabel
From the age of 6, in her native Zagreb, Eva Deutsch Costabel knew she would be an artist. The many-hued traditional costumes, The play of light and color in the lush countryside, the Yugoslavian peasant art itself, were all seeds which she would come to cultivate years later, far away, in a new and different world. But first the Nazi occupation, in 1941, meant the beginning of an odyssey of flight and displacement, and then...

Gilda Pervin: Catalog of works

Gilda Pervin
I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Those were the grimy years of Pittsburgh, when the sky and rivers were ablaze with colors of fire reflected from the steel mills. Soot crusted the white snow, and you could watch the passing seasons blister and peel the painted surfaces of the houses. It was a great visual education for future artists. My other education included BA and M.Litt degrees from the University of Pittsburgh and...

My father was a painter originally from Odessa, Ukraine who traveled the world with my mother before I was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1926. He encouraged me to be a painter and had me sit beside him at his easel with a brush and paints and beginning at age six he was there to spur me on. When I came to San Francisco, California in 1951 I found the major turning point for my...

Michael A. Cummings: Catalog of works

Michael A. Cummings
The New York Times noted in 1992 that Cummings "... draws inspiration from Africa and the art of African Americans, particularly the great quilters of the South.” Cummings' keen sense of history, his reverence for the spiritual, and his reworking the possibilities of the present and the future make his quilts striking" I guess you could say that my home is like my art: It is a living, breathing collage or a shadow-box filled with...

Cecily Barth Firestein: Catalog of Works

Cecily Barth Firestein
Cecily Barth Firestein is a painter who combines methodologies of printmaking and collage while working within the framework of abstraction. Firestein studied with Hans Hofmann, Hale Woodruff and Yasuo Kuniyoshi, among others, leading her to embrace and question aspects of abstraction, expressionism and surrealism. Over the past six decades she bravely resisted joining any particular artistic movement, opting instead to synthesize, hence cultivating her own unique language. Her paintings arrest us with structured compositions, lush...

Ray Grist: Catalog of Works

Ray Grist
I began painting in my early teen years. I wanted to know what a painting is, or so I described my impulse to myself. My first painting was a copy of a small still life by the Daunier Rousseau. I tried to 'understand' his painting, to analyze it (as much as I could analyze a painting then). I look at, and tried to study the works of Cezanne. He had been introduced to me as...
