Speaker Rathish Das Abstract In this talk, I will present an algorithmic foundation of parallel paging and an overview of our recent results on performing general linear stencil computations significantly faster than state-of-the-art algorithms.  Classical problems such as paging have been very well understood in the sequential setting for decades. However, the paging problem has remained wide open for more than two decades in the parallel setting. In the parallel paging problem, p proce...

Speaker Shuo Niu Abstract Video-sharing platforms such as YouTube, TikTok, and Twitch saw a rapid increase in popularity and affected the public socially and emotionally. Besides entertainment, users build connections, seek help, and enjoy visual-audio experiences on YouTube. Creators frequently upload videos and interact with the viewers, making YouTube a virtual place to mitigate loneliness, manage mental health issues, and obtain relaxation and intimacy. Researchers need to conceptuali...

Speaker Mehrdad Moharrami Abstract Identifying a hidden structure in a graph is a problem that occurs in many applications, including community detection, computer vision, and social networks. In this talk, we consider one such problem in which there is a bipartite graph with a hidden matching whose edge weights are lower, on average, than the weight of all the other edges in the graph. The goal is to understand the fundamental limits of when such a hidden matching can be recovered. Speci...

Learn how to propagate native plants from seed! Dominic Balestrieri-Fox and Max Friton will discuss the different preparation techniques for starting native plants, both indoors and outside. The talk will include a demonstration of some of the equipment used, as well as a native seed door prize. There will be a Q&A where audience members can ask about specific plants. Attendees will leave with the knowledge to start native plants from seed at home. All are welcome.

Speaker Suman Kalyan Maity Abstract We are surrounded by complex, adaptive and evolving socio-technical systems. The expansion and interdependence of technology and social interaction gives rise to a number of complex challenges from various perspectives in these systems. This talk builds on two inter-connected threads - research on social media and Science of Science. In the first part of the talk, I will discuss how social media is misused, specifically focusing on the detection and mit...

Speaker Katherine Kosaian Abstract Algorithms that are used in safety-critical settings (i.e., settings where errors can cause great financial loss or, in the worst case, loss of life) need to be highly trustworthy. Formally verifying an algorithm in a theorem prover—by first translating the algorithm into a rigorous logical setting and then providing rigorous associated proofs of correctness—allows us to achieve a high degree of trustworthiness. My work focuses on formally verifying alg...

Speaker Habiba Farrukh Abstract Mobile systems, such as smartphones, wearables (e.g., smart watches, AR/VR headsets), and IoT devices, have evolved significantly from being just a method of communication to sophisticated sensing devices that monitor and control several aspects of our lives. While these devices' advanced computing and sensing capabilities enable several useful applications, they also make them attractive targets for attackers, leading to several security threats and loss o...

Speaker Kirshanthan “Krish” Sundararajah Abstract Addressing the performance gap between software and hardware is one of the major challenges in computer science and engineering. Software stacks and optimization approaches have long been designed targeting regular programs — programs that operate over regular data structures such as arrays and matrices using loops, partly due to the abundance of regular programs in computer software. But irregular programs — programs that traverse over ir...

Speaker Mahmood Jasim Abstract The advancement of online engagement platforms, and civic and smart technologies have enabled the creation of public-generated data at an unprecedented rate. We are dependent on this public-generated data to make critical decisions that impact policies on commerce, healthcare, transit, and urban planning at a personal, local, or national scale. However, off-the-shelf data analysis tools and techniques, and traditional public engagement methods and practices ...

Speaker  Hanjie Chen Abstract Neural network models have been pushing computers’ capacity limit on natural language understanding and generation while lacking interpretability. The black-box nature of deep neural networks hinders humans from understanding their predictions and trusting them in real-world applications. In this talk, I will introduce my effort in bridging the trustworthy gap between models and humans by developing interpretation techniques, which cover three main phases of...

Speaker Quanquan Liu Abstract Graph algorithms are ubiquitous in today’s world where graph analytics are performed over massive datasets containing potentially sensitive information. Modern graphs present many new challenges not considered by classic static, sequential computation models. First, graphs have up to trillions of edges and are several orders of magnitude larger than what traditional sequential algorithms can handle. In addition to scale, modern graphs are also dynamically evo...

Speaker Chenhan Xu Abstract Nowadays, IoT devices are encroaching on every environment of our lives, including but not limited to homes, vehicles, and offices. However, due to the complexity of human activities, unavoidable variance in signal scaling, and privacy-preserving requirements, only limited human information can be cognized by the IoT environment, leading to a great gap between IoT intelligence and human demands. In this talk, I will introduce how we build sensing and computing ...

Speaker Harlin Lee Abstract The graph (or network) structure in data is increasingly used to improve statistical signal processing and machine learning (ML) methods. In this talk, I will discuss several data science projects leveraging graphs that span from theory to applications, from classical optimization to modern deep learning tools, and from physical graphs to abstract and data-dependent graphs. First part of the talk focuses on graph regularization, which is a technique that drive...
