CS Department Seminar: Dr. John Langford, Microsoft Research NY

Title: Extreme MulticlassDate/time: Wednesday, November 13, 11:00am-12:00pmLocation: Babbio Center 310

Abstract:Standard multiclass classification techniques require O(k) computation during train and test where k is the number of classes, yet the information theoretic lower bound is O(log k). This gap matters little when k is on the order of 10 or 100, but at 10^4  or 10^6  it matters a great deal. I will discuss the theory of extreme multiclass classification including consistency, ...read more

Title: Practical Defenses Against Return-Oriented Programming

Date/time: Monday, October 7, 2pm-3pm

Abstract:

The wide adoption of exploit mitigation technologies based on non-executable memory pages, has given rise to a new breed of attacks that employ return-oriented programming (ROP) to achieve arbitrary code execution without the injection of any code. After a brief introduction into return-oriented programming, in this talk I will present two complementary defenses ...read more

CS distinguished lecture: Dr. Chid Apte, Director of Analytics Research, IBM Research

Abstract:Business Analytics is broadly defined as the use of data and computation to make optimal business decisions. While ideas and methods from more than half a century of computational mathematics research have been selectively exploited to build business optimization solutions in the past, the focus has recently shifted significantly and quickly to data-intensive and data-driven analytics. Extracting actionable insights from large-scale volume, variety, and velocity of data, in context, be ...read more

CS Seminar: Prof. Tina Eliassi-Rad, Measuring Tie Strength in Implicit Social Networks

Speaker: Prof. Tina Eliassi-Rad (Rutgers University)Time: 1:00pm-2:00pmLocation: Babbio Center 304

Abstract:Given a set of people and a set of events attended by them, we address the problem of measuring connectedness or tie strength between each pair of persons. The underlying assumption is that attendance at mutual events gives an implicit social network between people. We take an axiomatic approach to this problem. Starting from a list of axioms, which a measure of tie strength must ...read more
