The CWDS seminar series is centered around intellectual exchange and interaction, and the audience is encouraged to ask questions during presentations. The goal is a seminar that looks less like a lecture and more like a spirited discussion of issues raised in a relatively brief presentation of a paper or a research project.
All seminars will be held at 12:30 on Wednesdays in TLB 307B on the third floor of the Tioga Library Building. We will aim to conclude by 1:30.
If you are interested in learning more about our seminar series please contact Mohamed Ali.
|Title||Date of Presentation||Research Focus|
|Pavol Zajac: A connection between algebraic cryptanalysis of ciphers with low multiplicative complexity and decoding problem||06/03/2015||
Pavol Zajac is an associate professor at UIM FEI STU, specialized in cryptology and IT security. He currently works on problems related to design of lightweight ciphers and algebraic cryptanalysis, and on the problems of secure implementation of post-quantum cryptography.
|Inference of genetic networks from large scale expression data||05/27/2015||
LINCS L1000 is a NIH funded project that has measured the expression levels of 1000 genes in 1.4 million experiments for 78 different cell types in the presence of over 40,000 chemical compounds. Our goal is to infer changes in genetic interactions that result from these perturbations in order to understand the pathways affected by known drugs and identify potential candidates for new drugs. I will describe new software for inferring genetic networks that is more accurate, more scalable and 300x faster than its predecessor that will be applied to this data.
|Viliam Hromada: Fault Analysis of Stream Ciphers||05/20/2015||
Viliam Hromada is a post-doc at UIM FEI STU, specialized in cryptology and IT security. His main research topics include stream ciphers and theoretical fault analysis of cryptosystems. He also currently works on a side-channel analysis of an implementation of the McEliece cryptosystem on an STM32F4 micro-controller.
|Cale Berkey, Development lead at Decisive Data||05/13/2015||
Every project, every team, every day brings new possibilities to learn; to learn about our clients, to learn about the technologies we use, and to learn about ourselves. My goal every day is to advance the frontiers of learning about self-organizing agile software development teams. At Decisive Data, I lead our development teams by asking questions about how we work, how we learn, and what more we can do to delight our clients with exactly the solutions they envision.
|Spatial Predictive Queries||05/06/2015||
In this seminar, we address spatial predictive queries both in Euclidian spaces and over road networks. We provide a definition for various types of spatial predictive queries, describe current research trends, and envision future directions. We present practical application scenarios and emphasize the roadblocks that are holding industry back from the commercialization of spatial predictive queries. This seminar targets audience in mobile data management, spatiotemporal query processing, mobile crowd sourcing, and tracking of moving objects.
|Global Supply Chain Optimization at Amazon||04/29/2015||
Adam Margulies (Principal Engineer) and Raman Iyer (Director, Software Development) talk about how Amazon uses deep research and data science to solve a variety of supply chain challenges at massive scale and complexity.
|Yuri Kocharov: Search Technology at Nordstroms||04/22/2015||
Join us for a conversation with Yuri Kocharov, Insitute of Technology Alum and Software Engineering manager for Nordstrom Search, as we discuss:
|Domain Generating Algorithms||04/15/2015||
BIO: Anderson Nascimento is an assistant professor with the Institute of Technology of the University of Washington - Tacoma. and an adjunct professor with the department of Electrical Engineering - University of Brasilia.
|What to Expect to Pay When You're Expecting||04/08/2015||
ABSTRACT: This talk will share the process of applying a human-centered design approach to conceptualize E$PECT -- a mobile application that uses big data to estimate childbirth delivery costs.
|Naveen Garg from NLPCore||04/01/2015||
This week's Center for Data Science Wednesday Seminar (April 1) features Naveen Garg from NLPCore giving us insight into his company and their innovative text mining platform. The talk runs from 12:00pm - 1:00pm in the UWT Tioga Building 3rd floor atrium. All are welcome. There will be coffee.
