  • Heterogeneous learning deals with data from complex real-world applications such as social networks, biological networks, internet of things, etc. Heterogeneity could be found in multi-task learning, multi-view learning, multi-label learning, and multi-instance learning. In this talk we will present our group’s recent progress in designing and implementing large-scale heterogeneous learning algorithms including multi-task learning and multi-view learning. The applications of this work in social network analysis and bioinformatics will be discussed as well.

  • We will most likely be in the back room or hogging the large table in the corner.
  • In the spirit of holiday laid-backery, we will just pick a problem (any problem) and spend the time hacking on it.  The problem is likely to come either from HackerRank or project Euler, or some similar site.

  • We're switching it up this month and are planning a discussion panel. The focus of which is the front end framework: which to choose in what scenario and why. Since there is no one size fits all framework, no winner will be announced.
    Panel participants will receive a list of abbreviated speaking topics before the event, giving each a chance to prepare thorough answers. Questions and speaking topics are provided by you, the audience.
    The quality of this event is completely dependent on your submissions, so please give them thorough thought. An example of a good topic includes: "Please explain the flexibility of the dependency tree for your framework". A bad question sounds like: "Which front end framework is the best and why should I use it?". Submissions may target an issue surrounding a single or group of frameworks and do not need to apply to all panel participants. Submit questions on this thread.
    The deadline for questions is one week before the event - March 10th, 7pm.
    If you'd like to volunteer as a panel participant please say so in this thread. Our panel currently includes the following:
    • Durandal - Matt Hamilton
    • Ember - Justin Durkes
    • Angular - Jeremy Mason
    • Ampersand - Wyatt Preul
    • Backbone - Joe Post
    Looking forward to this friendly debate!
