  • High-Level Program Optimizations for Data Analytics

    Thu, Sep 14, 2017 @ 02:00 PM - 03:15 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Yufei Ding, University of California at Santa Barbara

    Talk Title: High-Level Program Optimizations for Data Analytics

    Abstract: Many modern applications, especially those data analytics, often spend a large number of cycles on unnecessary computations. To find a document most similar to a query document, for instance, these applications typically would need to examine hundreds of thousands of other documents (that are not the most similar ones) in the dataset. Such redundant computations have been hidden in the useful instructions of the applications and are elusive for traditional compiler-based code optimizations. My work harnesses these hidden but significant optimization opportunities by raising the level of program optimizations from implementations to algorithms, and from instructions to formulas.

    Biography:

    Yufei Ding will soon join the department of Computer Science, University of California at Santa Barbara as an assistant professor. She received her Ph.D. in the Computer Science from North Carolina State University, and B.S. and M.S. in Physics from University of Science and Technology of China and The College of William and Mary respectively. In 2012, she started her Ph.D. study in Computer Science. Her research interest resides at the intersection of Compiler Technology and (Big) Data Analytics, with a focus on enabling HighI-Level Program Optimizations for data analytics and other data-intensive applications. Yufei has been actively publishing in major venues in both computer systems and data analytics areas, such as ASPLOS, PLDI, OOPSLA, VLDB, ICDE, and ICML. She was the receipt of NCSU Computer Science Outstanding Research Award in 2016.

  • CAIS Seminar: Dr. David Traum (University of Southern California) - Conversations with History: The New Dimensions in Testimony Project

    Thu, Sep 14, 2017 @ 04:00 PM - 05:00 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. David Traum, University of Southern California

    Talk Title: Conversations with History: The New Dimensions in Testimony Project

    Series: Center for AI in Society (CAIS) Seminar Series

    Abstract: This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium

    One of the best and most engaging methods of learning about history, and particularly implications for future behavior, is direct conversation with those who can give a first person account. The USC Institute for Creative Technologies (ICT) has developed "time-offset interaction" technology to allow interactive conversations with recordings of an eyewitness to history, so that much of this experience can be had without the synchronous participation of the subject. I will describe and demo the use of this technology in the New Dimensions in Testimony project - a collaboration with the USC Shoah Foundation and Conscience Display, in which people can interact with Holocaust survivors in this manner. Time permitting, I will also present its use in a similar project to increase awareness of the consequences of sexual assault in the military.


    Biography: David Traum is the Director for Natural Language Research at the USC Institute for Creative Technologies and a research faculty member of the Department of Computer Science at USC. He leads the Natural Language Dialogue Group at ICT; his research focus is on interactive dialogue between humans and machines.
