    Due to surging prices and a mostly unregulated ecosystem, cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin have become a frequent talking point on the national stage. Tech companies, however, are more excited about the underlying technology (blockchain) that enables these cryptocurrencies. What is all the hype about?

    Datacenters host a wide range of today's low-latency applications. To meet their strict latency requirements at scale, datacenter networks are designed as topologies that can provide a large number of parallel paths between each pair of hosts. The recent trend towards simple datacenter network fabric strips most network functionality, including load balancing among these paths, out of the network core and pushes it to the edge. This slows reaction to microbursts, the main culprit of packet loss -- and consequently performance degradation -- in datacenters.

    Search systems aim to answer a wide variety of requests from many different users by locating and presenting the most relevant information from large, usually unstructured, data collections. The nature of such tasks makes searching information a complex problem that involves challenges from information retrieval, machine learning, human-computer interaction, and many other fields.

    This talk will introduce theory-guided data science, a novel paradigm of scientific discovery that leverages the unique ability of data science methods to automatically extract patterns and models from data, but without ignoring the treasure of knowledge accumulated in scientific theories. Theory-guided data science aims to fully capitalize the power of machine learning and data mining methods in scientific disciplines by deeply coupling them with models based on scientific theories.

    In recent years the Internet has integrated itself into the critical infrastructure and its users have become increasingly dependent on it for commerce, communication, and social and political organization. This has resulted in the emergence of Internet stakeholders that have competing and contradictory interests. For example, given that the Internet economy is fueled by user data and targeted advertising, content providers aim to maximize their ability to gather user data and personally identifiable information (PII).
