November 8, 2016 10:30 am - 11:30 am EST
Distinguished Lecture Series: Scientific Computing and Data Analytics: How to Deal with the Flood of Data
Speaker: Franck Cappello, Director of the Joint-Laboratory on Extreme Scale Computing
Learn about the trends in scientific simulation platforms, the need to reduce simulation results, and discuss several planned experiments for scientific instruments that will require significant data reduction.
November 10, 2016 10:30 am - 11:30 am EST
Speaker: Dr. John Launchbury, Director of Information Innovation Office (I2O) at DARPA
This talk will explore the powerful technology that DARPA has catalyzed for decades and that is now poised to move in surprising new directions.
November 14, 2016 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EST
Speaker: Scott Roche, PhD Candidate, Northeastern University
Scott's thesis work focuses on two “lower-layer” primitives essential for robust distributed, networked systems: communication through information spreading protocols and distributed maintenance of overlay network topology. The first topic involves a protocol for information spreading, with potential applications to the study of the spread of epidemics on networks. The second branch of work focuses on a distributed protocol which maintains the expander topology of the overlay network in the presence of large-scale churn of nodes.
November 18, 2016 10:30 am - 11:30 am EST
Speaker: Ben Fry, PhD, Author, Founder and Principal of Fathom Information Design, and Lecturer at Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Join us to learn about how data is a design problem.
November 19, 2016 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST
Speaker: Mark Catalano, Managing Director and Founding Partner of Ronik Design and Rama Poola, and CEO and Co-Founder of SkyHoppr
Join us to explore the many paths towards becoming an entrepreneur!
November 21, 2016 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST
Speaker: Andrea Grimes Parker, PhD, Assistant Professor at Northeastern University, College of Computer and Information Science and Bouvé College of Health Sciences, Founder and Director of the Wellness Technology Research Group
November 21, 2016 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST
Speaker: Dan Roth, Computer Science and the Beckman Institute, University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign
This talk will discuss two key issues regarding data: (1) From Data to Meaning and (2) Trustworthiness of Information.
November 21, 2016 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST
Speaker(s): Diego Amancio and Filipi Silva, University of São Paulo
Complex networks have been used to model a myriad of real systems. In this presentation, we will focus on the application of network science theory in text classification and scienciometry.
November 29, 2016 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST
Speaker: Arvind Narayanan, Princeton University
During this presentation we will model ad blocking as a state space with four states and six state transitions, which correspond to techniques that can be deployed by either publishers or ad blockers. We will then argue that this is a complete model of the system.
December 2, 2016 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm EST
Network Science Institute: Network Effects in Broadcast – Interpersonal Media: Evidence from Field Experiments on Facebook
Speaker: Dean Eckles, social scientist, statistician, and Assistant Professor in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Sloan School of Management
Join us to learn how communication technologies exhibit network effects since the payoffs for adoption depend on who can be communicated with.
December 5, 2016 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST
Speaker: Professor Timothy W. Bickmore, PhD
Discuss needs and opportunities for wellness promotion in palliative care and learn about the work Professor Bickmore's lab has been doing on a virtual palliative care coach.
February 27 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm EST
