To avoid this problem, we propose an explicit geometric integrator that replaces the momentum variable in RMHMC by velocity. This this talk I will discuss my work in collaboration with Children’s Hospital Los Angeles in applying machine learning to improve health care, particularly pediatric intensive care. Behrooz Zarebavani, Foad Jafarinejad, Matin Hashemi, Saber Salehkaleybar, "cuPC: CUDA-based Parallel PC Algorithm for Causal Structure Learning on GPU", IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems (TPDS), Vol. Networks are interesting for machine learning because they grow in interesting ways. Our solution suggests explicit modeling of trust and embedding trust metrics and mechanisms within very fabric of user profiles. Highlighted results start from modeling of adaptive user profiles incorporating users taste, trust and privacy preferences. I will overview two approaches to graph identification: 1) coupled conditional classifiers (C^3), and 2) probabilistic soft logic (PSL). We introduce a novel bandit algorithm based on a method-of-moments approach for the estimation of the possible tasks and derive regret bounds for it. CS4780/CS5780: Machine Learning for Intelligent Systems [FALL 2018] (painting by Katherine Voor) Attention!! Intelligent Winding Machine of Plastic Films for Preventing Both Wrinkles and Slippages Hiromu Hashimoto DOI: 10.4236/mme.2016.61003 4,548 Downloads 5,826 Views Citations This way, our method handles the constraints implicitly by moving freely on sphere generating proposals that remain within boundaries when mapped back to the original space. A year later, he entered the Computer Science Ph.D. program at U.C. The discussion will be led by Prof. Matthew Barth on the topic of Smart Cities. In addition to being more elegant than sliding windows, we demonstrate experimentally on the PASCAL VOC 2010 dataset that our strategies evaluate two orders of magnitude fewer windows while achieving higher object detection performance. Active approaches seek to manage sensing resources so as to maximize a utility function while incorporating constraints on resource expenditures. He is currently a postdoctoral research assistant at software and computer systems (SCS) lab at KTH, where he focuses on big data and social informatics, particularly his research interests include trust, social network mining and analysis and recommender systems. We model the interactions via a dynamic social network with joint edge and vertex dynamics. This prevents complex co-adaptations in which a feature detector is only helpful in the context of several other specific feature detectors. Request PDF | Machine Learning Towards Intelligent Systems: Applications, Challenges, and Opportunities | The emergence and continued reliance on the Internet and related technologies has … For examples, machine learning … The concepts used by Rephil are not pre-specified; instead, they are derived by an unsupervised learning algorithm running on massive amounts of text. All faculty broadly interested in control, robotics, and machine intelligence are welcome to attend! We demonstrate a Markov model based technique for recognizing gestures from accelerometers that explicitly represent duration. degree in Human- Computer Interaction from Carnegie Mellon University. CRIS faculty in machine intelligence are known across the world for their research in computer vision, machine learning, data mining, quantitative modeling, and spatial databases. At USC she has been awarded the Viterbi School of Engineering Service Award and Junior Research Award, the Provost’s Center for Interdisciplinary Research Fellowship, the Mellon Mentoring Award, the Academic Senate Distinguished Faculty Service Award, and a Remarkable Woman Award. Consequently, exploiting loose couplings between agents, as expressed in graphical models, is key to rendering such decision making efficient. The robot’s physical embodiment is at the heart of SAR’s effectiveness, as it leverages the inherently human tendency to engage with lifelike (but not necessarily human-like or otherwise biomimetic) social behavior. Graph identification is the process of transforming an observed input network into an inferred output graph. I will also discuss how Rephil relates to ongoing academic research on probabilistic topic models. Experimental results show that our method improves RMHMC’s overall computational efficiency. Katerina Fragkiadaki is a Ph.D. student in Computer and Information Science in the University of Pennsylvania. We show empirically that such multi-granularity tracking representation is worthwhile, obtaining significantly more accurate body and pose tracking in popular datasets. I’ll begin with a brief overview of SRL, and discuss its relation to network analysis, extraction, and alignment. She was conference co-chair for ICML 2011, and has served on the PC of many conferences including the senior PC for AAAI, ICML, KDD, UAI and the PC of SIGMOD, VLDB, and WWW. This allows for models which factorize the tree structure and times, providing two benefits: more flexible priors may be constructed and more efficient Gibbs type inference can be used. Acknowledgments: This is joint work with Zahra Zamani & Ehsan Abbasnejad (Australian National University), Karina Valdivia Delgado & Leliane Nunes de Barros (University of Sao Paulo), and Simon Fang (M.I.T.). A person joins a social network because their friend is already in it. Kamalika’s research is on the design and analysis of machine-learning algorithms and their applications. The prior is constructed by marginalizing out the time information of Kingman’s coalescent, providing a prior over tree structures which we call the Time-Marginalized Coalescent (TMC).

We draw a concrete connection between differential privacy, and gross error sensitivity, a measure of robustness of a statistical estimator, and show how these two notions are quantitatively related. We will show how these analyses lead to a new general family of learning algorithms for deep architectures–the deep target (DT) algorithms. For example, recent results of [Nguyen et al., 2009] link a class of information measures to surrogate risk functions and their associated bounds on excess risk [Bartlett et al., 2003]. Optimal uncertainty quantification is shown as a way to rigorously connect simulations with Big Data. As other intelligent systems, applications in computer vision heavily rely on MAP hypotheses of probabilistic models.

Padhraic Smyth is a Professor at the University of California, Irvine, in the Department of Computer Science with a joint appointment in Statistics, and is also Director of the Center for Machine Learning and Intelligent Systems … Data-intensive problems are especially challenging for Bayesian methods, which typically involve intractable models that rely on Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithms for their implementation. Nima Dokoohaki holds a MSc (2007) in software engineering of distributed systems, and a PhD (2013) in information and communication technologies from KTH-Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden. Motivated by this overview, we will study and prove several theorems regarding deep architectures and one of their main ingredients–autoencoder circuits–in particular in the unrestricted Boolean and unrestricted probabilistic cases. We will meet on Thursday January 23rd at 12pm in WCH215. At ETH Zurich, the Department for Computer Science (D-INFK) supports significant activities in machine learning and computational intelligence. In this talk, I will describe computational and statistical methods that we have developed and applied to a variety of genomes, with the goal of characterizing genome architecture and function. The Hume Center's Intelligent Systems Lab (ISL) conducts research to address critical areas of national security in three technological thrusts: 1) data science, machine learning, artificial intelligence, 2) … This talk argues that with an appropriate representation and data structure, we can vastly expand the class of models for which we can perform exact, closed-form inference. Application areas include signal-level approaches to multi-modal data fusion, signal and image processing in sensor networks, distributed inference under resource constraints, resource management in sensor networks, and analysis of seismic and radar images. in Symbolic Systems at Stanford University. This procedure gives users personalized “nudges” and personalized “justifications” based on a context-aware prediction of their privacy preferences. We propose a novel method for estimating the mixture components with provable guarantees. We have introduced the notion of augmenting user profiling process with trust, as a solution to the problem of uncertainty and unmanageable exposure of personal data during access, mining and retrieval by web applications. These gestures, known as cramped-synchronized general movements are highly correlated with a diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy. Intelligent systems and machines are capable of adapting their behaviour by sensing and interpreting their environment, making decisions and plans, and then carrying out those plans using physical actions. Socially assistive robotics (SAR) is a new field of intelligent robotics that focuses on developing machines capable of assisting users through social rather than physical interaction. Bayesian inference involving probability distributions confined to constrained domains could be quite challenging for commonly used sampling algorithms. Her work has been funded by ARO, DARPA, IARPA, Google, jIBM, LLNL, Microsoft, NGA, NSF, Yahoo! In this context, this paper introduces topical inﬂuence, a quantitative measure of the extent to which an article tends to spread its topics to the articles that cite it. One approach uses geometrically motivated methods that explore the parameter space more efficiency by exploiting its geometric properties. I will discuss a method [Williams et al., 2007a] which enables long time-horizon sensor planning in the context of state estimation with a distributed sensor network. We will have an open discussion regarding a new NIH initiative on "Explainable Artificial Intelligence for Decoding and Modulating Neural Circuit Activity Linked to Behavior". We establish that our estimator is consistent in both the domains, i.e., it successfully recovers the supports of both Markov and independence models, when the number of samples $n$ scales as $n = \Omega(d^2 \log p)$, where $p$ is the number of variables and $d$ is the maximum node degree in the Markov model. I will introduce graph steering, a framework that specifically targets inference under potentially sparse unary detection potentials and dense pairwise motion affinities – a particular characteristic of the video signal – in contrast to standard MRFs. social interactions) given the vertex predictions. In the second part of the talk I explore the connection between dynamics and network structure. In this talk, we approach thecrowdsourcing problem by transforming it into a standard inference problem in graphical models, and apply powerful inference algorithms such as belief propagation (BP). Machine learning algorithms increasingly work with sensitive information on individuals, and hence the problem of privacy-preserving data analysis — how to design data analysis algorithms that operate on the sensitive data of individuals while still guaranteeing the privacy of individuals in the data– has achieved great practical importance. The following research groups are involved: Intelligent Systems and Robotics People readily ascribe intention, personality, and emotion to robots; SAR leverages this engagement stemming from non-contact social interaction involving speech, gesture, movement demonstration and imitation, and encouragement, to develop robots capable of monitoring, motivating, and sustaining user activities and improving human learning, training, performance and health outcomes.

This model family can incorporate dependence in vertex co-presence, found in many social settings (e.g., subgroup structure, selective pairing). Description. In many ways, it shares more in common with engineering and business than with lab sciences: while controlled experiments can be performed, most data are available from live practice with the aim of solving a problem, not exploration of hypotheses. Bayesian posterior sampling can be painfully slow on very large datasets, since traditional MCMC methods such as Hybrid Monte Carlo are designed to be asymptotically unbiased and require processing the entire dataset to generate each sample.
