Single Page Apps with Ember.js

1 year ago
This talk will focus on Ember.js, a front-end javascript framework for “creating ambitious web applications.” HTML5 is frequently heralded as the future of the web, and I’ll touch on the challenges inherent in HTML5 apps and how Ember.js is working to solve them. The Ember.js team is working hard to make ember future-compatible, by embracing […]

Accurate and unforgettable identity recognition is a topic of critical concern in the modern world. Unfortunately, further improving security via biometrics systems is difficult to achieve and frequently requires additional hardware. This talk will discuss the possibility of identifying a person based on several separate traits derived from the eye movements, e.g., oculomotor plant (eye […]

Max-Violation Perceptron and Forced Decoding for Scalable MT Training

Max-Violation Perceptron and Forced Decoding for Scalable MT Training

1 year ago
While large-scale discriminative training has triumphed in many NLP problems, its definite success on machine translation has been largely elusive. Most recent efforts along this line are not scalable (training on the small dev set with features from the top most frequent words) and overly complicated. We instead present a very simple yet theoretically motivated […]
Familiarity Does Not Breed Contempt: Diversity, Discrimination and Generosity in Delhi Schools

Familiarity Does Not Breed Contempt: Diversity, Discrimination and Generosity in Delhi Schools

1 year ago
I exploit a natural experiment in India to identify how mixing rich and poor students in schools affects social preferences and behaviors. A policy change in 2007 forced many private schools in Delhi to meet a quota of poor children in admissions. This led to a sharp increase in the presence of poor children in […]
Impact of Computer Science Research on Science, Technology, and Society

Impact of Computer Science Research on Science, Technology, and Society

1 year ago
The field of computing is driven by scientific questions, technological innovation and societal demands. There is wonderful interplay-push and pull-among these three drivers. For example, accelerating technological advances and monumental societal demands force us to revisit the most basic scientific questions of computing. These drivers are also measures of the impact of computing research. In […]
Python+Machine Learning tutorial – Data munging for predictive modeling with pandas and scikit-learn

Python+Machine Learning tutorial – Data munging for predictive modeling with pandas and scikit-learn

1 year ago
Building predictive models first requires shaping the data into the right format to meet the mathematical assumptions of machine learning algorithms. In this session we will introduce the pandas data frame data structure for munging heterogeneous data into a representation that is suitable for most scikit-learn models. In particular we address problems such as missing […]
