Computer Graphics in the Age of AI and Big Data
Richard (Hao) Zhang, Simon Fraser University – Abstract: Computer graphics is traditionally defined as a field which covers all aspects of computer-assisted image synthesis. An introductory class to graphics mainly teaches how to turn an explicit model description including geometric and photometric attributes into one…

Towards Knowledge-Based Decision Support System using Propositional Analysis and Rhetorical Structure Theory
Cláudio Duque, Universidade de Brasília – Abstract: The project’s leading objective is to develop a natural language interface for knowledge-based decision support system (KBDSS) using rhetorical structure theory (RST) and propositional analysis. KBDSS is a system that provides specialized expertise (problem-solving) stored as facts, rules,…
Hugo Rosa – Using Fuzzy Fingerprints For Cyberbullying Detection in Social Networks
Hugo Rosa, Inesc-ID – Abstract: As cyberbullying becomes more and more frequent in social networks, automatically detecting it and pro-actively acting upon it becomes of the utmost importance. In this work, we study how a recent technique with proven success in similar tasks, Fuzzy Fingerprints,…
INVITED TALK – Prof. Pawel Kulakowski
, – Abstract: Nanoscale Communications The talk will discuss the possible means for nanocommunications, i.e. communication between future nanomachines. An overview of possible approaches will be given, including miniaturization of existing communication devices, building nanomachines from basic blocks and molecular communication motivated by the communication…
Basic Measurements in IP-Based Networks Jan Jerabek
Jan Jerabek , Brno University of Technology, Czech Republic – Abstract: Access speed became the most commonly published metric for characterizing the quality of broadband offerings by Internet Service Providers. Obviously, this applies for both wired and wireless access technologies. However, measurements of speed for…
Fast-SG: An alignment-free algorithm for hybrid assembly
Alex Di Genova, ERABLE – Abstract: Long read sequencing technologies are the ultimate solution for genome repeats, allowing near reference level reconstructions of large genomes. However, long read de novo assembly pipelines are computationally intense and require a considerable amount of coverage, thereby hindering their…
Helping out the middle class (in the cache) with the MITHRIL prefetching algorithm
Ymir Vigfusson, Emory University – Abstract: The growing pressure on cloud application scalability has accentuated storage performance as a critical bottleneck. Although cache replacement algorithms have been extensively studied, cache prefetching – reducing latency by retrieving items before they are actually requested – remains an…
Crosslinguistic perception and production of filled and silent pauses and raising L2 learners’ awareness of them
Ralph L. ROSE, Waseda University – Abstract: Filled pauses (e.g., uh/um) in speech are thought to be signs of underlying cognitive processes and hence listeners may see them as signals of such things as syntactic structure. Less is known about the signalling nature of silent…
Development of Radiation Hard 150nm Standard Cell Library
João Baptista Martins, Federal University of Santa Maria – Abstract: The effects produced by radiation on integrated circuits can be classified into Single Event Effects (SEE) related to transient problems and Total Ionization Dose (TID) effects that arise due to the long exposure time ionizing…
Mathematics, Physics & Machine Learning Seminar Series (Online)
The Mathematics, Physics & Machine Learning seminar series has started on October 2020 and runs until March 2021.
The seminars aim to bring together mathematicians and physicists interested in machine learning (ML) with ML and AI experts interested in mathematics and physics, with the goal of introducing innovative Mathematics and Physics-inspired techniques in Machine Learning and, reciprocally, applying Machine Learning to problems in Mathematics and Physics.
Attendance is free but registration is required.
