    Human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) is the causative agent of the global AIDS epidemic and still constitutes a major health concern. Several vaccine trials have been conducted to date, their primary goal is to elicit formation of antibodies that can bind and inactivate incoming virus and thus prevent establishment of infection. However, all tested vaccines have been only marginally effective in preventing virus transmission. Vaccine efficiency is hindered by the tremendous diversity of HIV-1 variants that circulate in the population.

    Social media surveillance is becoming increasingly popular. It is being used to explore various topics such as political sentiment, product satisfaction, flu trends, and health beliefs. However, these surveillance methods are typically disconnected from any existing survey tools addressing the same or similar goals. The research question we address is: how does one develop a surveillance strategy from a survey of interest?

    Of course there is no magic formula for making breakthroughs in any field.

    However it is possible to glean a number of pointers from past experiences. The talk will go over some of these and illustrate them with several examples.

    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.
