Matt Adamczyk, a CS alum and former ACM President now working at Microsoft, will give a short, informal talk/Q&A about working at Microsoft and his path to get there.
A Rule Set model consists of a small number of short rules for interpretable classification, where an instance is classified as positive if it satisfies at least one of the rules. The rule set provides reasons for predictions, and also descriptions of a particular class. We present a Bayesian framework for learning Rule Set models, with prior parameters that the user can set to encourage the model to have a desired size and shape in order to conform with a domain-specific definition of interpretability.

Social web services such as Facebook, Twitter, and Yelp bring new benefits to many aspects of our lives. However, they are also plagued by both conventional and emerging threats to security and privacy. In this talk, we will discuss some fundamental security and privacy issues in social web services, covering both attacks and defenses. First, we will discuss a framework called SybilBelief that we developed to detect fake (also called Sybil) accounts in online social networks.

For the first time ever, we have more people living in urban areas than rural areas. Based on this inevitable urbanization, my research aims to address sustainability challenges related to urban mobility (e.g., energy consumption and traffic congestion) by data-driven applications with a Cyber-Physical-Systems approach (CPS, also known as a broader term for Internet of Things), which is a new information paradigm integrating communication, computation and control in real time.
