Sargam Yadav

I am a PhD candidate in artificial intelligence at the Regulated Software Research Centre at Dundalk Institute of Technology. I did my masters in data analytics from Dublin business school. My research topic is "Developing Interpretable Artificial Intelligence Tool Kit for Detecting Misogynistic Mixed-code Online Content in South Asian Countries". The objective of my research topic is to assemble a dataset in mix-code Hinglish that can be used to train machine learning and deep learning models for detection of misogynistic hate speech comments. The study also explores explainability of the classifiers through XAI and attempts to mitigate bias.

My other research interests include sentiment analysis, fairness and bias, explainable artificial intelligence, smart farming technologies, dialogue systems, and more. My previous research work has included review papers on artificial intelligence technologies in the healthcare sector, evaluation of dialogue systems, sentiment analysis in code-mixed Hinglish using traditional machine learning classifiers and state-of-the-art Transformer models such as BERT, XLM-RoBERTa, IndicBERT, and more. I was also part of the group project that created and evaluated the ‘Atreya chatbot’ for chemical scientists. I also authored a survey paper for comparing Cloud-IoT systems that were used to track Covid-19 cases during the pandemic.
