Improved Indexing of Text using the Ziv-Lempel Trie
Luís M. S. Russo, Inesc-ID – Abstract: A full-text index provides fast search for any pattern in a text. Tradicional full-text indexes, however, have a serious problem with space usage. A recent trend is to develop indexes that exploit the compressibility of the text so…
Compiler-Directed Caching in FPGAs using RAM Blocks
Pedro Diniz, University of Southern California – Abstract: Configurable architectures, such as Field-Programmable-Gate-Arrays (FPGAs) offer the promise of substantial performance improvements over conventional processors by allowing the implementation of application-specific datapaths that exploit instruction-level parallelism or domain-specific numeric formats and operations. Unfortunately FPGAs are still…
Modeling and Optimization of Wireless Sensor Networks
Raja Jurdak, University of California at Irvine – Abstract: Wireless sensor networks are emerging as a new class of ad hoc networks that differ considerably from conventional wired or wireless networks. The distinguishing characteristic of sensor networks is the lack of previously deployed infrastructure, which…
”TEAMING UP HUMAN AND SYNTHETIC CHARACTERS”
Rui Prada, Departamento de Engenharia Informática – Abstract: With the emergence of synthetic characters, collaborative virtual environments can now be populated with these characters and users at the same time, all interacting, collaborating or competing with each other. However, the user’s interaction with the synthetic…
“SUPORTE À EXECUÇÃO DE PROCESSOS DE NEGÓCIO”
Pedro Emanuel Cordeiro Dias de Santo António, Departamento de Engenharia Informática – Abstract: A forte competição em todas as áreas de negócio resulta numa procura incessante de melhorias na produção e gestão de produtos e serviços oferecidos por uma organização. As tecnologias de informação existentes…
“SISTEMAS DE INFORMAÇÃO DE GESTÃO DE BALANCED SCORECARD – ESTADO DA ARTE, SELECÇÃO, IMPLEMENTAÇÃO E ALINHAMENTO COM A AQRQUITECTURA DA EMPRESA”
José Jorge Carranca Sequeira Martins, Departamento de Engenharia Informática – Abstract: O Balanced Scorecard (BSc), formulado em 1989 por Kaplan e Norton, emergiu como uma ferramenta de medição de desempenho e de planeamento estratégico corporativo, sendo já adoptado na maioria das empresas representadas no Fortune…
“ALINHAMENTO MÚLTIPLO DE SEQUÊNCIAS USANDO ALGORITMOS EVOLUTIVOS HÍBRIDOS”
NELSON RICARDO PERDIGÃO PEREIRA, Departamento de Engenharia Informática – Abstract: O Alinhamento Múltiplo de Sequências (AMS) de proteínas é uma das ferramentas mais importantes em Bioinformatica. Sendo o AMS um problema da classe de NP-completo, leva a que abordagens heurísticas sejam desenvolvidas para a sua…
From biosensors to biochips aiming the True Lab on Chip
Moises Simões Piedade, Inesc-ID – Abstract: The talk will deal with recent advances in biochemical, microelectronics and bioinformatics that probably are the ingredients needed to solve an old question: How to miniaturize a laboratory of analysis to pocket size dimensions capable of analysing in short…
Time to evaluate: Annotation Tools for the Semantic Web
Peyman Sazedj, Inesc-ID – Abstract: One of the problems newcomers to the annotation area face is which tool to choose. In order to compare available tools one must evaluate them according to an evaluation framework. In this paper we propose an evaluation framework, that introduces…
“GESTÃO E REPRESENTAÇÃO DE DOMÍNIOS EM SISTEMAS DE DIÁLOGO”
Márcio Duarte Albasini Mourão, Departamento de Engenharia Informática – Abstract: Um sistema de diálogo de língua falada permite a um utilizador interagir com uma máquina em língua natural. Para alem de um conjunto de serviços relacionados com a adaptação ao domínio, um sistema deste tipo…
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.
