  • Invited Talk in Honor of Bob Braden: "The Past and Futures of the Internet"

    Fri, Aug 10, 2018 @ 01:30 PM - 03:00 PM

    Thomas Lord Department of Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: David Clark, Sr. Research Scientist , MIT Computer and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory

    Talk Title: The Past and Futures of the Internet

    Abstract: The Internet has been such a success that for many who do not know its roots, its current form seems almost a given. It is worth looking back to the early days when Bob Braden was part of the small team of researchers who started out on this quest, and remembering how much had to be learned, and the decisions that might have been made differently. Understanding that there were defining forks in the road in the past is important as we contemplate some very important forks in the road that lie in the not too distant future. The future of the Internet is no more pre-ordained than its present form.

    Biography: David Clark is a Senior Research Scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. He is technical director of the MIT Internet Policy Research Initiative. Since the mid-70s, David has been leading the development of the Internet; from 1981-1989 he acted as Chief Protocol Architect in this development, and chaired the Internet Activities Board. His current research looks at re-definition of the architectural underpinnings of the Internet, and the relation of technology and architecture to economic, societal and policy considerations.

  • NL Seminar-Reasoning about objects, their components, and their descriptors

    Fri, Aug 10, 2018 @ 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: James Mullenbach , USC/ISI

    Talk Title: Reasoning about objects, their components, and their descriptors

    Series: Natural Language Seminar

    Abstract: How do adjectives project from a noun to its parts and other aspects? If a motorcycle is red, are its wheels red? Is a sharp knifes handle sharp? Questions like this are common sense for humans, using our understanding of the world, but difficult for computers. I will describe our process for curating and annotating a large dataset consisting of related object pairs and adjectives, and a set of experiments that aim to discover the extent to which modern approaches can learn these relationships from purely textual sources.

    Biography: James is a Masters Student in Computer Science at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where he works on machine learning for healthcare using written electronic health record notes. At ISI, he is working with Jonathan May and Nanyun Peng on building a dataset and models for textual commonsense reasoning. He aims to work on NLP and ML in industry for a year or so before applying for PhD programs.

    Host: Nanyun Peng
