April 2017

April 25 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Network Science Institute: Knowledge Transfer Through Labor Mobility, Social Networks and Urban Success

Speaker: Balazs Lengyel, Visiting Scholar at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Human Mobility and Networks Lab; Research Fellow at the Institute of Economics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences

In this talk, Balazs will use empirical evidence to demonstrate that – besides being an act of direct knowledge transfer – labor mobility creates new social ties that channels further learning and thus leads to economic progress.

April 26 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Thesis Defense: Statically Resolving Implicit Rank Polymorphism

Speaker: Justin Slepak, PhD Candidate, College of Computer and Information Science at Northeastern University

Justin will propose to leverage developments in formal semantics, type systems, and decision procedures to produce a compiler for a higher-order, rank-polymorphic language. This plan will build upon the formalism he has already developed, which uses a dependent type system to characterize the implicit rank-polymorphic control flow.

April 27 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

CS Theory: Crossing the Logarithmic Barrier for Dynamic Boolean Data Structure Lower Bounds

Speaker: Omri Weinstein, Assistant Professor of Computer Science, The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science (Department of Computer Science) at Columbia University

Join us as we learn a new technique and use it to prove a ~ $\log^{1.5}(n)$ lower bound on the operational time of a wide range of boolean data structure problems, most notably, on the query time of dynamic range counting *over GF_2* ().

May 2017

May 1 9:00 am - May 12 5:00 pm EDT
