PL Seminar Series: Learning to Program and Debug, Automatically

Speaker: Swarat Chaudhuri, Associate Professor of Computer Science at Rice University (Houston, Texas)

In this talk, Professor Chaudhuri will present a general framework for formal methods, based on Bayesian statistical learning, that aims to eliminate these differences. In his framework, descriptions of programming tasks are seen to be "clues" towards a hidden (probabilistic) specification that fully defines the task.

March 24 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT

NUVis: DataRescue Boston

NUVis Workshop: Basic Cartography and Map Design

Speaker(s): Steven Braun, Northeastern University Data Analytics and Visualization Specialist; Bahare Sanaie-Movahed, Northeastern University Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Specialist

In this workshop, participants will explore what it means for a map to be deigned well. In the process, we will use activities to understand map-making as a medium that requires intentionality and careful thoughtfulness, exploring the special design considerations that are particularly important when making maps. What makes a good map? The answer may not be so straightforward.
