From Kant to Computation: Why Aesthetics Matter Now More than Ever, and What We Can Do about It
David Salesin, University of Washington & Microsoft Research – Abstract: Our sense of aesthetics is grounded in the natural world, our place as living things. Yet our intimate connection with nature grows more tenuous every day. Indeed, in the coming year the world will pass…
Cryptography in Embedded Systems
Ricardo Chaves, Inesc-ID – Abstract: The need for privacy and security is one of the most important aspects of present days systems, from the most complex web server to the simplest access card. This type of security systems are based on complex cryptographic systems that…
O M(in)istério da Educação: ou o Problema da Colocação dos Docentes 2004/2005
João Luís Sobrinho, Instituto de Telecomunicações (IT) – Abstract: Todos nós, portugueses, seguimos com atenção o concurso de colocação dos docentes dos ensinos pré-escolar, básico e secundário, ano lectivo de 2004/2005. Pelo que na altura veio a público, ficou claro que no âmago da questão…
Sistema de gestão da informação dos mecanismos de regulação genómica do organismo Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Pedro T. Monteiro, Inesc-ID – Abstract: Após a sequenciação dos genomas de diversos organismos, passou-se à fase de anotação dos genes, tendo muita desta informação ficado disponível para ser processada e transformada em conhecimento. Neste contexto, é especialmente importante o estudo dos mecanismos de interacções…
Indexing email for Fast Search and Filtering
Luis Coelho, Inesc-ID – Abstract: The purpose of this project was to provide email indexing for kmail, an open-source email client. As underlying indexing structure, inverted files were used. The project is broadly divided into a core library and its use by kmail. This talk…
Improving Efficiency of Arithmetic BIST by Combining Targeted and General Purpose Patterns
Prof. Salvador Manich-Bou, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya – Abstract: Arithmetic additive test pattern generators (AdTPG) are being proposed recently as an lternative to the linear feedback shift registers (LFSR) thanks to their reduced area overhead impact. Similar to the case of LFSR, the compactness of…
Lissajous based Mixed-Signal BIST and Floating Gate Monitors
Prof. Luz Balado, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya – Abstract: Novel techniques for design and Test of digital and mixed-signal circuits and defect modeling, namely using BIST (Built-In Self Test) and for physical defects induced during IC manufacturing, manifesting themselves as defective MOSFET devices (with floating…

Será feita a exposição de como surgiu e a sua necessidade para aplicações cientificas e de investigação. Serão dados exemplos…
A Linear Time Biclustering Algorithm for Time Series Genomic Expression Data
Sara C. Madeira, Universidade da Beira Interior – Abstract: Recent developments in DNA chips now enable the simultaneous measure of the expression level of a large number of genes (sometimes all the genes of an organism) for a given experimental condition. Most commonly, gene expression…
Chip-Multiprocessor using Data Driven Multithreading (DDM) and Conventional Microprocessors Cores
Pedro Trancoso, Department of Computer Science, University of Cyprus – Abstract: Data-Driven Multithreading (DDM) is a non-blocking multithreading execution model that tolerates inter-node latency by scheduling threads for execution based on data availability. In order to exploit the benefits of dataflow execution without the penalties…
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.
