ResearchNext: The Rise of the HumansThe rapid growth of our digital world has brought huge advantages - access to information anywhere, at any time, and the ability to communicate with colleagues, family and friends around the globe in real-time. But in other ways, the same technology has also disconnected us. Computers risk becoming less of a productivity tool and more like information firehoses, drowning us in a deluge of data that can keep us from doing meaningful, real work. The devices in our hands connect us like never before, but they...

ResearchNext: ​Data-driven discovery and the CloudWe live in an information society, with cloud computing changing the way we live, work and play in a world of devices and services. In this talk we'll explore what, why and how this new era of computing is changing the way we think about conceiving, developing and carrying out research and development across disciplines. We'll look at how cloud computing is helping us rise above the data deluge in science, and the opportunities it presents for the future. We'll describe several projects in flood, water and...

Economics of Repeated SalesA special case of Myerson's classic result describes the revenue-optimal equilibrium when a seller offers a single item to a buyer. We study a natural repeated sales extension of this model: a seller offers to sell a single fresh copy of an item to the same buyer every day via a posted price. The buyer's value for the item is unknown to the seller but is drawn initially from a publicly known distribution F and remains the same throughout. One key aspect of this game is revelation of the buyer's type...

Powers of Two: Finding the Essence of Innovation in Creative PairsA revelatory synthesis of cultural history and social psychology that shows how one-to-one collaboration drives creative successWeaving the lives of scores of creative duos—from John Lennon and Paul McCartney to Marie and Pierre Curie to Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak—Joshua Wolf Shenk identifies the core qualities of that dizzying experience we call 'chemistry.' Revealing the six essential stages through which creative intimacy unfolds, Shenk draws on new scientific research and builds an argument for the...

Enabling more Girls in Computing: Office Mix CS Toolkit for middle school and CS Principles Gaming Course for HSApproximately 16 million students are attending high school in the U.S., 1/5 of them will become graduating seniors. This means that 3.2 million new students have the opportunity to become computer science majors. Unfortunately, just 3%, a tiny fraction of a number will choose computer science. This 3% of students will have the composition of five males for every one female; unless we do something to change it. There is a strong push by organizations across the world to get more girls interested in...

Automatic Device Driver SynthesisAutomatic device driver synthesis is a radical approach to creating drivers faster and with fewer defects by generating them automatically based on hardware device specifications. I will present the design and implementation of a new driver synthesis toolkit, called Termite-2. Termite-2 is the first tool to combine the power of automation with the flexibility of conventional development. It is also the first practical synthesis tool based on abstraction refinement. Finally, it is the first synthesis tool...

Python+Machine Learning tutorial - Working with textual dataMachine Learning with text data can be very useful for social networks analytics for instance to perform sentiment analysis. Extracting a 'machine learnable' representation from raw text is an art in itself. In this session we will introduce the bag of words representation and its implementation in scikit-learn via its text vectorizers. We will discuss preprocessing with NLTK, n-grams extractions, TF-IDF weighting and the use of SciPy sparse matrices. Finally we will use that data to train and evaluate a...

Blind Deconvolution Using Unconventional BeamformingWhen an acoustic wave travels in a medium which encounters the boundary of a second medium, recorded signals by a receiver array (an array of microphones or hydrophones) is commonly distorted by reflected waves from the boundaries. Such recordings are the convolution of the source signal and the impulse response of environment at the time of signal transmission. “Blind deconvolution” is the name given to the task of determining the source signal and the impulse response from array-recorded signals when the...

Python+Machine Learning tutorial - Data munging for predictive modeling with pandas and scikit-learnBuilding predictive models first requires shaping the data into the right format to meet the mathematical assumptions of machine learning algorithms. In this session we will introduce the pandas data frame data structure for munging heterogeneous data into a representation that is suitable for most scikit-learn models. In particular we address problems such as missing value imputation and categorical variables. We will illustrate those concepts by combining pandas-based feature engineering with...

Python+Machine Learning tutorial - IntroductionThis session is about getting started with the IPython notebook and a quick introduction to numpy for matrix operations and matplotlib for visualization. We will then give a general introduction to the scikit-learn project and API and Machine Learning concepts such as supervised vs unsupervised learning, classification vs regression. We will explore a first couple of examples on homogeneous data loaded as numpy arrays with linear models and kernel Support Vector Machines.
