Gap Amplification for Small-Set Expansion via Random WalksThe Small-Set Expansion problem is the problem of finding sets in a graph that meet specific size and expansion bounds; this problem has received a lot of attention in the past couple of years due to its close relationship with the Unique Games problem. In this talk, I will show how to achieve gap amplification for the Small-Set Expansion problem. Specifically, I will show that an instance of the Small-Set Expansion Problem with completeness ε and soundness 1/2 is at least as difficult as Small-Set...

Leslie Lamport
Thinking Above the CodeLeslie Lamport, Turing Award winner, Microsoft Research, presents this keynote during the 2014 Microsoft Research Faculty Summit.Architects draw detailed blueprints before a brick is laid or a nail is hammered. Programmers and software engineers seldom do. A blueprint for software is called a specification. The need for extremely rigorous specifications before coding complex or critical systems should be obvious—especially for concurrent and distributed systems. This talk explains why some sort of...

Leading from the Back: Making Data Science Work at a UX-driven BusinessMailChimp sends 10 billion email newsletters for over 6 million customers each month (a lot of that goes to Hotmail), and from those sends comes a mountain of clicks, opens, purchases, and other transactional data. But MailChimp's success as a start-up wasn't built on data. It was built on a user experience that placed an intuitive and friendly interface on email marketing and removed much of the busy work. So how does a company whose business is not data, use its massive data set? John Foreman, author of...
