The Digital Imagination Distinguished Speaker Series-Craft, Digital Fabrication & Generative Design

Abstract

Santiago Pérez's research and teaching attempts to develop a dialog between "the physicality of making, and the fluidity of digital representation & fabrication." He studies how form inspired by mathematical and biological principles could generate novel assemblies combining the natural and the artificial. 

Faculty Search Colloquium: Bidirectional Programming Languages

Abstract

The need to edit data through a view arises in a host of applications across many different areas of computing. Unfortunately, few existing systems have support for updatable views and so, in practice, they are usually implemented using two separate programs -- one to compute views from sources, and another to handle updates. This rudimentary design is tedious to program, difficult to reason about, and a nightmare to maintain.

Faculty Search Colloquium: Markov Logic: Representation, Inference and Learning

Abstract

Many applications of AI, including natural language processing, information extraction, bioinformatics, robot mapping, and social network analysis, have both relational and statistical aspects. Historically, this has led to a divide between relational approaches based on first-order logic and statistical approaches based on probabilistic graphical models. Markov logic unifies the two by attaching weights to formulas in first-order logic, which are used as templates for constructing a Markov network.

International Summer School - Workshop of Network Design and Operations: July, 2009

Abstract

Dale Smith will give a preview of the upcoming Summer School Workshop of Network Design and Operations. This workshop will give Oregon students a unique opportunity to take a one week intensive course in networking with international classmates from China, Africa, South America, and the Himalayan region.
