Risk Classification in High Dimensional Survival Models Date: Monday, November 21, 2016 Place: 052 Tyler Hall Time: 11:00 a.m. Sparse regression models are an actively burgeoning area of statistical learning research. A subset of these models seek to separate out significant and non-trivial main effects from noise effects within the regression framework (yielding so-called “sparse”(…)

Statistics Thesis Defense: Zidan Wu

NETWORK-BASED STATISTICAL METHODS FOR THE ANALYSIS OF STOCK RETURNS Date: Monday, November 21, 2016 Place: 049 Tyler Hall Time: 9:00 a.m. To maximize returns and diversify portfolios, the stock price market participants have always been interested in learning associations of stock price returns for different companies. Five primary goals of this thesis are: (1) to(…)

All travel expenses are reimbursed for this workshop. The upcoming CRA-Women Graduate Student Cohort (Grad Cohort) will be held April 7-8, 2017 in Washington, D.C. The(…)

Crowdsourcing Deep Thoughts: Meeting the Challenges of In-depth Language Understanding Systems for Smarter Social Media

Speaker: Jamie Macbeth Speaker Affiliation: School of Engineering, Fairfield University Date: Friday, November 18, 2016 Time: 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM Location: CBLS 152 Intelligent systems driven by natural language input are well-positioned to meet the challenges of intervening against abuses of social media (such as cyberbullying) and providing resources for victims. However, the language(…)

Programming for Data Science – Spring 2017 CSC392 Sec 02

CSC392 Section 02 Dr. Lutz Hamel Programming for Data Science Spring 2017, T&Th 12:30-1:45PM Data science exists at the intersection of computer science, statistics, and machine learning. That means writing programs to access and manipulate data so that it becomes available for analysis using statistical and machine learning techniques is at the core of data(…)

Algorithms for Big Data – Spring 2107 CSC 592

  CSC 592 Prof. Noah Daniels Algorithms for Big Data Spring 2017, T&Th 2:30-3:15 In this project-oriented course, we will explore algorithms for large data sets, including data sources that are growing faster than Moore’s Law. Topics will include sketching and streaming algorithms, randomized polynomial-time approximation schemes and their error bounds, compressive acceleration, and other(…)
