October 14 9:00 am - December 9 2:00 pm EDT
Speaker: Dr. Tiffani L. Williams, Director of Computer Science Programs and Professor of Practice at Northeastern University - Charlotte
This free workshop gives participants 8 hours of instruction that combines hands-on programming and an introduction to algorithms.
October 18 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
Speaker: Ali Vakilian, PhD Candidate, MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Vakilian will present a randomized (1+ \eps)-approximation algorithm that makes p passes over the data, and uses O(polylog (m, n, 1/\eps)(mn^(O (1/(p \eps)))+ n)) memory space. The algorithm works in both the set arrival and the edge arrival models.
