    Researchers and practitioners use social media to extract actionable patterns about human behavior. However, the validity of these patterns hinges, in part, on leveraging a dataset that is representative of society. The data collected from social media is not always representative of the real world, and in many cases it is not even representative of social media itself. This talk will introduce ways in which the social data upon which inferences are drawn differ from the underlying populations and trends in the real world.

    As technology has increasingly brought computing off of the laptop and into our social domain, we see society more and more impacted by the interactions allowed by mobile technologies and  increasingly ubiquitous communications. These new sources of data, coupled with new breakthroughs in computation, and especially AI, are opening new vistas for ways that information comes into our world, and how what we do increasingly impacts others.

    Welcome to the tenth annual University of Iowa Computing Conference, hosted by the UI ACM student chapter and the UI Department of Computer Science.  We'll have five speakers from across the country, from industry and academia alike. The UICC is run by students, for students, to promote computing as a science and a profession. All UI and regional college students with an interest in computing are welcome to attend; registration is free. Come network with other students, faculty, and industry sponsors.

    5:00pm to 8:00pm

    The Web and social media are now part of the day-to-day life of millions of people worldwide, changing society in profound ways. These platforms are designed to allow the rapid creation and dissemination of digital contents across vast social networks, and are thus increasingly shaping opinions, policies, and decisions in all sectors of society. This may have virtues, for example the potentials to extract useful signals about complex collective phenomena beyond the traditional domain of Science and Engineering --- for example cultural markets.

    Neural Networks (NN) have been applied successfully to many Information Extraction (IE) tasks recently. However, most of the current models are designed for a separate task of the IE pipeline, focusing only on the local information specific to the task. Such local models are not able to capture the global information or the long range inter-dependencies between multiple prediction stages, that are necessary for many IE problems.

    “With all the hype around the blockchain space, we invite you to join CME Group for a 1 hour tech exploration. Along with detailing the inner-workings of blockchain technology and its cryptological foundation, we’ll shed light on common misconceptions, describe pitfalls, and speak to best practices surrounding this emerging technology. We’ll conclude by addressing the varied future implications of distributed ledger technology and follow with a Q&A session.”

    We inhabit a vast, uncertain, and dynamic universe. To succeed in such an environment, artificial intelligence approaches must handle massive amounts of noisy, changing evidence.  My research addresses the problems of building scalable, probabilistic models amenable to online updates. To illustrate the potential of such models, I present my work on knowledge graph identification, which jointly resolves the entities, attributes, and relationships in a knowledge graph by combining statistical NLP signals and semantic constraints.
