Sanay's Paper on Language Model Published in the Stanford Journal of Science, Technology, & Society

Sanay Bordia (CCIR alumnus) a junior student at Archbishop Mitty High School in California is very passionate about Computer Science, Speech, Debate, and Sports. Previously, he ranked Top 10 at 10Pi Hackathon and Top 100 in the California Coast District in Speech and Debate.

In CCIR, he joined the CCIR 1-on-1 mentorship programme, where he developed his research project " Using Large Language Models to Assist Content Generation in Persuasive Speaking." His research paper focuses on the type of information used in persuasive speeches and introduces a new vehicle for analysis: using a large language model to convert a simple argument into a more persuasive argument. This has many practical applications, as debaters can interactively use such a model to test out different ideas and ways of presenting information while they are preparing for tournaments or events. Rather than waiting to get feedback from coaches or researchers, they are able to make decisions in seconds based on what they see in front of them.

We're beyond proud that his research paper was accepted at Stanford University’s Intersect: The Stanford Journal of Science, Technology, and Society. Intersect publishes research and scholarship on the social factors that shape, underwrite, and/or inhibit research and invention, just as these social forces are, in turn, shaped by evolving science and technology.

Congratulations, Sanay!
