  • Meta (Formally Facebook) Linux Coding Challenge

    Tue, Feb 15, 2022 @ 12:00 PM - 02:00 PM

    Viterbi School of Engineering Career Connections

    Workshops & Infosessions


    Want a chance to win an Oculus Quest 2?
    Come learn about Production Engineering (PE) and see if you have what it takes to be a PE!
    Production Engineers at Meta are a hybrid between software and systems engineers who are focused on the scalability and reliability of Meta's family of apps and services. Our PE Splash Page (https://fbpe.splashthat.com) dives into more detail about the role, the interview process, and has link to apply online.
    So do you think you have what it takes to be a Production Engineer at Meta? Meta's Production Engineering team has put together a Linux Coding Challenge that is meant to give you a taste of the types of problems Production Engineers solve daily.
    The challenge consists of four problems, and your solutions will be run against multiple data sets. For the event you will need to have access to a chrome browser and the internet. We will provide you with a development environment, which will support solutions written in C, C++, Golang, Java, Python, Ruby, or Rust.

  • CS Colloquium: Julian Togelius (NYU) - Generating content for fun, games, and intelligence

    Tue, Feb 15, 2022 @ 04:00 PM - 05:20 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Julian Togelius, New York University

    Talk Title: Generating content for fun, games, and intelligence

    Series: Computer Science Colloquium

    Abstract: Designing and developing video games is hard work. Much of that work goes into designing the environments, levels, characters, items, and graphical assets that the player interacts with. For decades, some games have featured procedural content generation, where parts of the game was generated algorithmically as it was being played. Recently, we have seen an explosion of interest in this field, with many new techniques being applied to content generation problems. As video games are increasingly shaping culture and society, including visions of the so called "metaverse", these problems and their solutions are becoming increasingly important. But could procedural content generation also play a role outside of what we think of as games, in fields such as architecture, interior design, and robotics? And can we further the development of artificial general intelligence by generating new tasks and environments to optimally challenge our developing artificial intelligences? I will lay out some visions for this and show some recent approaches to generating game content, based on methods as diverse as evolutionary computation, reinforcement learning, self-supervised learning, and constraint solving.

    ***Prof. Julian Togelius will give his talk in person at SGM 124 and we will also host the talk over Zoom.***

    Biography: Julian Togelius is an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, New York University, and a co-founder of modl.ai. He works on artificial intelligence for games and on games for artificial intelligence. His current main research directions involve procedural content generation in games, general video game playing, player modeling, and fair and relevant benchmarking of AI through game-based competitions. Additionally, he works on topics in evolutionary computation, quality-diversity algorithms, and reinforcement learning. From 2018 to 2021, he was the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Games. Togelius holds a BA from Lund University, an MSc from the University of Sussex, and a PhD from the University of Essex.
