    gene expression In this talk I will present two of my recent projects looking into the interplay between genome architecture and gene expression in mammalian cells Programming using Automata and Transducers Thursday March 5 2015 4 00pm to 5 00pm Loris D Antoni University of Pennsylvania The goal of my research is to develop programming abstractions and automated analyses to assist programmers In this talk we focus on how techniques rooted in automata and transducers can be used to detect security vulnerabilities in programs such as HTML sanitizers and string encoders Building Mobile Technologies for Underserved Communities Monday March 9 2015 4 00pm to 5 00pm Nicola Dell University of Washington The goal of my research is to design build and evaluate novel computing systems that improve the lives of underserved populations in low income regions To date many of the world s biggest technological advances have primarily benefited people living in developed regions like North America and Europe that contain a small fraction of the world s population Hardware and Software for Approximate Computing Tuesday March 10 2015 4 00pm to 5 00pm Adrian Sampson University of Washington Correctness is a fundamental tenet in computer systems In many cases however perfect answers are unnecessary or even impossible small errors can be acceptable in applications such as vision machine learning speech recognition search graphics and physical simulation Approximate computing is a new research direction that improves efficiency by carefully relaxing correctness constraints My research seeks to get the most out of approximate computing using collaboration between software and hardware The Sparse Fourier Transform Theory and Applications Thursday March 12 2015 4 00pm to 5 00pm Haitham Hassanieh Massachusetts Institute of Technology The Fourier transform is one of the most widely used computational tools It is used in signal processing communications audio and video compression medical imaging genomics astronomy etc The fastest algorithm for computing the Fourier transform is FFT which has O n log n time complexity The near linear time of the FFT made it an indispensable tool in many applications However with the emergence of big data problems in which processed data sets can exceed terabytes FFT s runtime is no longer sufficient and faster algorithms that do not sample every data point are required Scalable Inference and Learning for High Level Probabilistic Models Monday March 16 2015 4 00pm Guy Van den Broeck KU Leuven Belgium Probabilistic graphical models are pervasive in AI and machine learning A recent push however is towards more high level representations of uncertainty such as probabilistic programs probabilistic databases and statistical relational models This move is akin to going from hardware circuits to a full fledged programming language and poses key challenges for inference and learning For instance we encounter a fundamental limitation of classical learning algorithms they make strong independence assumptions about the entities in the data e g images web pages patients etc Mending the Application Network Gap in Big Data Analytics Tuesday March 17 2015 4 00pm to 5
