Altenberg, L., Liberman, U., and Feldman, M.W. 2017. A Unified Reduction Principle for the Evolution of Mutation, Migration, and Recombination. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Early edition: March 6. doi: 10.1073/pnas.1619655114. Abstract: Modifier-gene models for the evolution of genetic information transmission between generations of organisms exhibit the reduction principle: Selection favors […]
The UH Manoa Student Chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) is sponsoring February’s WetWare Wednesday! This is a group that is all about problem solving with any kind of tech under the sun. Come early to hear Teresa Nededog and her experience as a software developer. ACM will also be demonstrating awesome projects […]
Thursday February 2nd, 4:30-5:30pm in POST 126 Speaker: Henri Casanova Title: “Simulating HPC Systems and Applications” Abstract: There is a well-identified problem of (lack of) reproducibility in experimental Computer Science research, and in particular in High Performance Computing (HPC) research. Running experiments in simulation is one way to lower barriers to reproducibility, and it is used effectively in several areas of […]
Professor Susanne Still’s research on the energy costs of biological computation was mentioned in “How Life (and Death) Spring from Disorder,” in Quanta Magazine. Professor Still’s comments stem from her invited participation at a conference on Statistical Physics, Information Processing and Biology at the Santa Fe Institute.
March 10-11, 2017 Mobile App Hackathon, an event produced by the AT&T Developer Program, is designed for attendees interested in coding mobile apps or hacking hardware solutions. Expand your network and industry knowledge while implementing innovative ideas. Prizes range from $500-$2500. “So join us as we hack hardware, build apps/mobile apps, get fed, compete for prizes […]
Thursday, Jan. 12, 4:30-5:30, POST 126 Multi-Dimensional Text Analytics: Concepts, Methods, Tools and Findings Dr. Raghava Rao Mukkamala Centre for Business Data Analytics Copenhagen Business School, Denmark Abstract: In this talk, I first present a methodology for multi-dimensional text analysis using text mining, topic modeling, and domain-specific classification. Second, I present a research tool, MUTATO […]
Thursday, Jan. 12, 12:00pm, POST318B (ICSpace) Computational Intelligence Pipelines: Imagination and Reality Sean Goggins Computer Science Department University of Missouri Abstract: The promise of making sense of human behavior through technology for profit is immense. If one looks at the success of online advertising, Amazon’s suggestions and Facebook advertising, indeed, monetizing human behavior related to purchasing […]
Monday, Jan. 9th, 4:30-5:30, Hamilton Library 2K Social Set Analysis: A Set Theoretical Approach to Big Data Analysis Prof. Ravi Vatrapu Centre for Business Data Analytics Copenhagen Business School, Denmark Abstract: Current analytical approaches in computational social science can be characterized by four dominant paradigms: text analysis (information extraction and classification), social network analysis (graph […]
Pawel Sobocinski Where and When: POST318B (ICSpace) Thursday November 3, 12:00pm Title: Compositional model checking of concurrent systems with Petri nets Abstract: Compositionality and process equivalence are both standard concepts of process algebra. Compositionality means that the behaviour of a compound system relies only on the behaviour of its components, i.e. there is no emergent behaviour. Process equivalence […]
