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(…)

Seminar: Algebraically defined digraphs

Speaker: Alexandr Kodess, URI Time: Friday, October 21, 1-2pm, Lippitt 204 See for further information and updates.

Entropy-Scaling Search of Massive Data

Applied Mathematics and Scientific Computing Seminar Dr. Noah Daniels Dept. of Computer Science & Statistics, URI Abstract: Recent technological improvements have increased the scale and content of data produced across a variety of fields, from astronomy and biology to global trade and social networks. In many cases, the scale, richness, and noise of the data(…)

Seminar: Developing a High-Performance Intracortical Brain-Computer Interface for Individuals with Tetraplegia

Department of Electrical, Computer and Biomedical Engineering Speaker: John Simeral Assistant Professor of Research School of Engineering at Brown University Location: Kelley 102 Date/Time: Wednesday, October 19th, 2016 at 2 p.m. Abstract: Thousands of people live with tetraplegia or locked-in syndrome arising from spinal cord injury, stroke, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) or other neurological disorders.(…)

Seminar in Discrete Mathematics – Dense graphs and a conjecture for tree-depth

Speaker: Michael Barrus, URI Title: Dense graphs and a conjecture for tree-depth Time: Friday October 14, 1pm, Lippitt 204 Abstract: The tree-depth of a graph $G$ is the smallest number of ordered labels necessary to label the vertices of $G$ so that any path joining two vertices with the same label contains a vertex having(…)

ECBE Seminar: Load Balancing in Large Data Storage Systems

Speaker: Bin Li Assistant Professor ECBE/URI Location: Kelley 102 Date/Time: Wednesday, September 28th, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. Abstract: Files in large storage systems are either replicated or coded at multiple servers to protect against server failures. Load balancing can be used to exploit this redundancy in storage to reduce mean file-access delay. It is easy(…)

Guest Seminar: Dr. James Simmons

Topic: “Bat Sonar, Clutter and Engineering” Who: Dr. James Simmons, Professor of Biology Brown University When: Wednesday, September 21, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. Where: Kelley Hall, Room 102 Abstract: Echolocating bats transmit wideband FM biosonar signals in the 20-100 kHz frequency band and hear echoes to guide flight and form images of targets. They use(…)

Seminar: Cyclic base orderings and uniformly dense networks

Seminar in Discrete Mathematics Speaker: Rachel K. Gouveia Title: Cyclic base orderings and uniformly dense networks Time: Friday November 13, 1pm, Lippitt 205 Abstract: One of the principle areas of interest in graph theory is analysis of networks and their strengths. Our research looks at a proposed method of determining which networks are uniformly dense.(…)

Applied Math seminar: A New Asynchronous Solver for Banded Linear Systems

Where and when: Thursday October 22 at 3:30pm in Lippitt 205 Presented by: Michael Jandron Naval Undersea Warfare Center, Newport, RI Anthony Ruffa Naval Undersea Warfare Center, Newport, RI James Baglama Department of Mathematics, University of Rhode Island, RI Abstract: Banded linear systems occur frequently in mathematics and physics. However, direct solvers for large systems cannot(…)

Novel Computational and Mathematical Approaches to Genomics Data Analysis – Statistics and Big Data Seminar Series

Professor Huang will discuss her recent work on novel computational and mathematical approaches that aim to address computationally demanding tasks in genomics data analysis, related to research areas such as cancer molecular study, plant stress, plant bioproduction etc. The talk will emphasize the novelty of the techniques and approaches, such as graph and optimization models for clustering and assembly, as well as the importance of understanding the underlying biology, the complex biological and biomedical processes and challenges.
