Computer Science MSc.Defense: Fast and Scalable MapReduce-based Vertical Mining

1:30pm - 2:45pm

Speaker: Jialiang Yu Abstract: Mining uncertain data is challenging because uncertainty is usually represented as floating-point/real numbers which are infinite (cf. representing finite occurrence counts when mining precise data). This means that they are not easy to store in a data structure. Although there exist some data mining algorithms for handling uncertain data, these algorithms become inefficient when size of data becomes so big. Vertical data mining algorithms have advantages in that they run fast and require low memory space.…

Accelerating the Discovery of Solid State Materials: …

2:30pm - 3:30pm

Prof. Arthur Mar Department of Chemistry, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada Accelerating the Discovery of Solid State Materials:  From Traditional to Machine-Learning Approaches Traditional approaches to search for new solid state materials can involve systematic investigations (e.g., phase diagrams), serendipitous discoveries, or, for limited classes of compounds, rational strategies for manipulating building blocks.  Answering the call of the Materials Genome Initiative,1 launched in 2011, to “discover, develop, and deploy new materials twice as fast,” we are applying high-throughput machine-learning…

Astronomy Open House

7:00pm - 8:00pm

Astronomy Open Houses will continue throughout the summer.  Since the sunset occurs prohibitively late, the Open Houses will be help at 7:00 pm on the last Wednesday of each month until September. Please note that due to the planetarium itself being under renovation and large crowd sizes, we will be hosting the Open Houses in Room 240 of University College. More details available at: http://www.physics.umanitoba.ca/astro/

Talk: The Regularity Lemma and some of its Applications

3:30pm - 3:30pm

Speaker: Hanno Lefmann, Department of Computer Science, Chemnitz University of Technology The regularity lemma proved by Szemerédi turned out to be a fruitful tool in mathematics, for example in combinatorics and graph theory, and theoretical computer science. It asserts that for every large enough graph G=(V,E) its vertex set V can be partitioned into a constant number of classes V1,…,Vk such that the set of edges between two different classes (for most pairs of classes) behaves 'pseudorandomly'. For example, this result was successfully used by Green…
