Shortest Path Search Algorithms with Heuristic and Bidirectional Searches
Marcelo Johann, Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul – Abstract: Algoritmos de pesquisa por caminhos são estudados desde a antiguidade, mas desenvolveram-se formalmente sobre o modelo de matemático de Grafo principalmente no século passado. O algoritmo de Dijkstra apresentado em 1959 faz uma pesquisa…
Creative Discovery in Lexical Ontologies
Nuno Seco, University College Dublin – Abstract: Compound terms play a surprisingly key role in the organization of lexical ontologies. However, their inclusion forces one to address the issues of completeness and consistency that naturally arise from this organizational role. In this paper we show…
Gene Function Prediction by Mining Bioimedical Literature
Pooja Jain, Faculdade de Ciências de Universidade de Lisboa – Abstract: This seminar will discuss the application of text mining to automate the identiﬁcation of the function of large sets of genes from the biomedical literature. An approach will be presented to obtain this knowledge…

Ubbo Visser, University of Bremen – Center for Computing Technologies – Abstract: The number of web sites has increased drastically over the past few years. Currently, billions of web pages supplying information to users. Modern technology (e.g. multiagent systems) seem to be able to support…
Estimating the Conformational Energy of Biological Macromolecules
Joaquim Mendes, European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) – Abstract: The conformational energy of a molecule in solution consists of two components: the intramolecular potential energy of the molecule and the solvation free energy of the molecule, the latter describing its interaction with the solvent. Although…
Secure Computing: Tamper Evident and Tamper Resistant Processing
Marten van Dijk, MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory – Abstract: Usually security protects the computer owner from attack, but sometimes the computer owner is the potential “enemy”. For example, in digital rights management the owner of a computer platform is motivated to break…
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.
More information is available here.
Energy Virtual Experience – EVEx 2020
The event “Energy Virtual Experience” ( EVEx 2020) will take place online, from 23rd to 27th November 2020.
“Energy Virtual Experience” will provide 4 different interactive experiences: EVEx Talks, EVEx MasterClass, EVEx Academy, and EVEx Expo/Busines. These four experiences will be centered on “Ibero-American post-pandemic energy transition”.
Looking to stimulate interdisciplinary studies and innovative solutions in energy area, call for papers and projects will be launched soon.
INESC-ID researcher and IST Professor, Rui Castro, is member of the scientific committee of EVEx 2020.
IST /INESC-ID Distinguished Lecture – An Ethical Crisis in Computing?
Computer scientists think often of “Ender’s Game” these days. In this award-winning 1985 science-fiction novel by Orson Scott Card, Ender is being trained at Battle School, an institution designed to make young children into military commanders against an unspecified enemy. Ender’s team engages in a series of computer-simulated battles, eventually destroying the enemy’s planet, only to learn then that the battles were very real and a real planet has been destroyed.
The benefits of computing seemed intuitive to us. We truly believe that computing yields tremendous societal benefits; for example, the life-saving potential of driverless cars is enormous! Like Ender, however, we realized recently that computing is not a game–it is real–and it brings with it not only societal benefits, but also significant societal costs, such as labor polarization, disinformation, and smart-phone addiction.
The real issue is how to deal with technology’s impact on society.
Technology is driving the future, but who is doing the steering?
