    Title: Improving machine learning algorithms with efficient data relevance discovery

    Abstract:

    This is the era of big data, where both challenges and opportunities lie ahead for the machine learning research. The data are created nowadays at an unprecedented pace with an unignorable cost in collecting, storing, and computing with the current scale of data. As the computational power that we possess gradually plateaus, it is an ever-increasing challenge to fully utilize the wealth of big data, where better data reduction techniques and scalable algorithms are the keys to a solution. We observe that to answer a certain query, the data are not equally important. Based on the models and the query, we provide efficient access to the numerical scores of the data points that represent their relevance in the current task. It enables us to wisely devote the computation resources to the important data, which improves the scalability and the reliability. We present our work under three applications: 1) tensor CP decomposition, 2) random-walk matrix-polynomial sparsification, where we provide an efficient access to the statistical leverage score for a faster numerical routine; and 3) matrix completability analysis, where we analyze the underlying completability structure for a more reliable estimation.

  • MASCLE Machine Learning Seminar: Robert Schapire (Microsoft Research NYC) - The Contextual Bandits Problem: Techniques for Learning to Make High-Reward Decisions

    Tue, Nov 14, 2017 @ 03:30 PM - 04:50 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Robert Schapire, Microsoft Research NYC

    Talk Title: The Contextual Bandits Problem: Techniques for Learning to Make High-Reward Decisions

    Series: NVIDIA Distinguished Lecture Series in Machine Learning

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

    We consider how to learn through experience to make intelligent decisions. In the generic setting, called the contextual bandits problem, the learner must repeatedly decide which action to take in response to an observed context, and is then permitted to observe the received reward, but only for the chosen action. The goal is to learn to behave nearly as well as the best policy (or decision rule) in some possibly very large and rich space of candidate policies. This talk will describe progress on developing general methods for this problem and some of its variants.


    Biography: Robert Schapire is a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research in New York City. He received his PhD from MIT in 1991. After a short post-doc at Harvard, he joined the technical staff at AT&T Labs (formerly AT&T Bell Laboratories) in 1991. In 2002, he became a Professor of Computer Science at Princeton University. He joined Microsoft Research in 2014. His awards include the 1991 ACM Doctoral Dissertation Award, the 2003 Gödel Prize, and the 2004 Kanelakkis Theory and Practice Award (both of the last two with Yoav Freund). He is a fellow of the AAAI, and a member of both the National Academy of Engineering and the National Academy of Sciences. His main research interest is in theoretical and applied machine learning, with particular focus on boosting, online learning, game theory, and maximum entropy.

  • CS Colloquium: Dr. Brian Milch (Google) - Combining Probabilistic and Neural Approaches for Text Classification

    Tue, Nov 14, 2017 @ 05:00 PM - 06:20 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. Brian Milch, Google

    Talk Title: Combining Probabilistic and Neural Approaches for Text Classification

    Series: CS Colloquium

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

    In the Semantic Signals group at Google Los Angeles, we build classifiers that label text with hundreds of human-defined categories across dozens of languages. Labeled training data is sparse, so we've found it essential to incorporate unsupervised learning methods that take advantage of unlabeled text. One of our tools is a probabilistic topic model that learns discrete "clusters" to explain word co-occurrence patterns in a large corpus, and then identifies the clusters that best explain a new document. Another tool is a neural net that learns embeddings of individual words in a continuous space. I'll discuss how these approaches play complementary roles in our text classification pipeline.


    Biography: Brian Milch is a software engineer at Google's Los Angeles office. He received a B.S. in Symbolic Systems from Stanford University in 2000, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley in 2006. He then spent two years as a post-doctoral researcher at MIT before joining Google in 2008. He has contributed to Google production systems for spelling correction, transliteration, and semantic modeling of text.

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Victor Preciado, University of Pennsylvania

    Talk Title: From Local Network Structure to Global Graph Spectrum

    Series: Fall 2017 Joint CSC@USC/CommNetS-MHI Seminar Series

    Abstract: Using methods from algebraic graph theory and convex optimization we study the relationship between local structural features of a network and global spectral properties. In particular, we derive expressions for the so-called spectral moments of a graph in terms of local structural measurements, such as subgraph densities. Furthermore, we propose a series of semidefinite programs to compute bounds on the spectral radius, and other spectral properties, from a truncated sequence of spectral moments. Using our tools, we illustrate how important spectral properties of real-world networks are strongly constrained by local structural features.


    Biography: Victor M. Preciado received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2008. He is currently the Raj and Neera Singh Assistant Professor of Electrical and Systems Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania.

He is a recipient of the 2017 National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award. His main research interests lie at the intersection of Big Data and Network Science; in particular, in using innovative mathematical and computational approaches to capture the essence of complex, high-dimensional dynamical systems. Relevant applications of this line of research can be found in the context of socio-technical networks, brain dynamical networks, healthcare operations, biological systems, and critical technological infrastructure.

    Speaker: Tim Lieuwen, Professor, Georgia Institute of Technology

    Talk Title: Unsteady Combustion Problems in Modern Energy and Propulsion Systems

    Abstract: The operational limits of modern power generation and propulsion devices are strongly influenced by the combustor. For example, combustion instabilities have emerged as one of the leading challenges associated with low emissions combustion technologies. More fundamentally, the combustion instability problem involves the nonlinear interactions of harmonic flow disturbances with flames in a highly turbulent flow. This talk will describe the key processes controlling the flame response - flame anchoring, excitation of wrinkles by flow oscillations, tangential convection of wrinkles upon the flame, and kinematic restoration.

    Biography: Tim Lieuwen is a professor and the David S. Lewis, Jr. Chair at Georgia Institute of Technology, and the Executive Director of the Strategic Energy Institute. He has a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering and is a licensed professional engineer in the state of Georgia.

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. David Morton, Northwestern University

    Talk Title: Using Optimization to Thwart Viruses

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

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

    We describe the use of data-driven optimization models to inform resource allocation to help detect or mitigate the spread of a virus. One set of models guide preparation for, and response to, an influenza pandemic. In particular, we optimize: the mix of central and regional stockpiles of ventilators, accounting for stochastic peak-week demand; the spatial allocation of antivirals, considering under-insured populations and hard-to-reach locations; and, the spatial allocation of multiple types of vaccines with differing suitability for each prioritized target population. In addition, we discuss rapidly detecting the spread of a cell-phone virus on a contact network of handsets.


    Biography: David Morton is the David A. and Karen Richards Sachs Professor and Chair of Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences at Northwestern University. His research interests include stochastic and large-scale optimization with applications in security, public health, and energy systems. Prior to joining Northwestern, he was on the faculty at the University of Texas at Austin, worked as a Fulbright Research Scholar at Charles University in Prague, and was a National Research Council Postdoctoral Fellow in the Operations Research Department at the Naval Postgraduate School.
