Colloquium - Futures Revisited

Friday, September 17, 2021 4:00pm to 5:00pm
Virtual
Speaker Frank Pfenning Abstract Futures have been around since Multilisp in 1985 and have been a popular abstraction for parallelism and concurrency in a variety of programming languages since then.  In brief, they allow us to spawn a new thread of computation and synchronize on the computed value.  We present a recently discovered type-theoretic foundation for futures, which turn out to arise from a formal system half-way between Hilbert-style axioms and a Gentzen-style sequent calculus…

GAUSS Seminar: Rotation Symmetric Boolean Functions and its Matrix

Tuesday, September 14, 2021 3:30pm to 4:20pm
Schaeffer Hall
Abstract Digital signatures are an important feature in any encryption/decryption scheme, as it provides a message with integrity, authenticity, and nonrepudiation. The problem occurs when long messages are being exchanged and signatures that are just as long need to be verified. By using hash functions, a ”fingerprint” of the message can be used instead of the message itself for verification, making the process computationally inexpensive. If we consider a single iteration of a general…

Colloquium - Diderot: A Parallel Domain-Specific Language for Image Analysis and Visualization

Friday, September 10, 2021 4:00pm to 5:00pm
MacLean Hall
Speaker John Reppy Abstract The analysis of structure in three-dimensional images is increasingly valuable for biomedical research and computational science.  At the same time, the computational burden of processing images is increasing as devices produce images of higher resolution (e.g., typical CT scans have gone from 128^3 to roughly 512^3 resolutions).  With the latest scanning technologies, it is also more common for the values measured at each sample to be multi-dimensional rather…

GAUSS Seminar: Mathematics and Redistricting

Tuesday, September 7, 2021 3:30pm to 4:20pm
Schaeffer Hall
What we know, what we don't, and where we're going Every ten years, the Census Bureau conducts the Census, a nation-wide tallying of every single individual living in the United States. In addition to helping governments and researchers manage land, understand population trends, and distribute resources, the Census is essential to a key democratic function: drawing electoral districts. The process of drawing electoral districts, called “redistricting,” divides every state in the United States…

Colloquium - Data Science in Biomedical Research

Friday, September 3, 2021 4:00pm to 5:00pm
MacLean Hall
Speaker Jacob Simmering Abstract The development of data science in biomedical research has  shifted the ways in which we develop epidemiologic knowledge. In some instances, like health insurance claims or hospital data, this was merely an outgrowth of existing trends. However, increasingly, there is interest in merging these data with other data sources, such as measures of weather or environmental exposures. Diseases previously not recognized as weather-related have detectable weather…

Final Exam - Towards a Privacy-Preserving Web

Monday, July 19, 2021 10:00am
Virtual
PhD Candidate: Umar Iqbal Abstract The web's modular nature is responsible for its tremendous success as well as its chronic insecurity. The modular nature of building web applications allows publishers to add new functionality to their websites by embedding third parties as needed. However, the modularity, by its very nature, also requires that publishers implicitly trust the embedded third parties. The browsers impose only modest restrictions on third party resource embedding, leaving users…

STEM and Race: Can We Talk?

Saturday, March 20, 2021 1:00pm to 4:15pm
Virtual
Can We Talk? "Can We Talk?" explores the issue of ‘social belonging’ in the context of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) and the effect it has on the lives of underrepresented people of color (UR-POC) who are pursuing an education or career in STEM, or who have decided to leave because of an overwhelming feeling of not belonging. The film has screened at venues across the U.S., at scientific conferences, colleges and universities, federal agencies, and for non-profit organizations…
