    In this talk, I will present my recent research work on randomized algorithms in machine learning. Compared to traditional algorithms, the use of randomization could bring us several benefits including (i) it often leads to faster algorithms that can scale to the large size of data; (ii) it can lead to simpler algorithms that are easier to analyze; (iii) it can lead implicitly to regularization and more robust output; and (iv) randomized algorithms can often be organized to exploit modern computational architectures better than traditional algorithms.

    We are currently seeing an unprecedented rise in the development and deployment of novel sensing and interactive technologies, driven by advances in robotics, wearable devices, and embedded microprocessors. While these technologies hold promise for aiding users in educational, workplace, and personal settings, gaps often exist between the core functionalities provided by new innovations and higher level user goals.

    Narrative intelligence (NI), or the ability to craft, tell, understand and respond appropriately to narratives, has been recognized as a central component of human intelligence. Hence, computationally replicating narrative intelligence can provide ample benefits for machines aiming to communicate effectively with humans, to understand human activities, to assist and augment game-play, and to produce creative solutions and artwork.

    In my talk, I will present my research on end-user parameter space explorability. The need for explorability research became apparent during my time as a collaborator on several interactive dance performances. As both a researcher and an artist, I integrated computer science algorithms into each dance piece, using sensor data from the dancers to create real-time interactive visualizations. Coupling the visualizations and multiple sensor inputs with various tracking, filtering, and computer vision algorithms required an exploration of a vast space of possibilities.

    This is an open hackathon where no idea or technology is off limits. Anyone with an ounce of technical interest is encouraged to join us for the weekend. We will have experts in mobile, web and hardware in the house to help mentor teams through their weekend project. Don’t have an idea you’d like to work on? Join someone else to work on their idea. There will be plenty of ideas floating around. Don’t feel like you know enough to hack all weekend? Yes, you do. Plus, what better way to learn something new in an open environment with experts right there.

    Video cameras are ubiquitous in computers and portable hardware. Moreover, even small mobile devices are also capable of image display and manipulation. There is an extraordinary creative potential in the interactive manipulation of video signals.

    This week we are going to have a giant group study. Whether you have exams soon or have an upcoming homework/project deadline, this is a good chance to come and work with other people from your class, or to get help from someone who has already taken the course.

    There will be food and beverage so bring your friends from class and get some studying done.
