Atomic Transaction Commit for Modern Data Stores

Alexey Gotsman, IMDEA Software Institute in Madrid – Abstract: Modern data stores often need to provide both high scalability and strong transactional semantics. They achieve scalability by partitioning data into shards and fault-tolerance by replicating each shard across several servers. A key component of such…

SCHOOLS ARE STUCK, CAN GAMES FIX THEM?

Francisco Miranda, SpotGames – Abstract: Today’s children and young people are increasingly disinvesting from their school paths. However, one approach has been dramatically effective in motivating all young people to pursue, in a dedicated and persistent way, personal (though seemingly virtual) self-improvement goals – games….

Scalability and Efficiency in Graph Mining

Wagner Meira Jr, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais – Abstract: Despite significant research, graph mining remains a challenging task, due to characteristics such as its computational complexity and the large spectrum of models that may be mined. In this talk we discuss some of these…

Socially Competent Robot Navigation

Chris Mavrogiannis, Cornell University – Abstract: Crowded human environments such as pedestrian scenes constitute challenging domains for mobile robots, for a variety of reasons including the heterogeneity of pedestrians’ decision making mechanisms, the lack of universal formal rules regulating traffic, the lack of channels of…

Personalizing Personal Robots

Dan Grollman, Misty Robotics – Abstract: In this talk I’ll present some ideas on how to make your robot truly your own. Beyond sensing, thinking, and acting, robots need to feel and express their own unique interpretation of the world around them, and adapt themselves…
