For Tony Yu, a junior at Carnegie Mellon University, problem solving makes sense.

“I’m really curious. If there’s anything that’s not known, I want to see if I can fill in some of the gaps,” said Yu, who recently shifted her major from discrete math to computer science.

Yu spent the summer working with Peleg Michaeli, a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Mathematical Sciences, researching the properties of deviations in graphs, particularly in the case of Hamilton cycles.

“Tony is an inquisitive, bright and hard-working student who took on the leadership of the project early on, Michaeli said. “With proof skills on the one hand and programming skills on the other, he was able to navigate the research process, ultimately leading to some interesting results.”

Essentially, Yu looked at how a set of vertices on a graph are connected by edges.

“We are looking for ways to group all rows and assign colors to rows by minimizing the difference between the number of rows of different colors,” Yu said. Work like this is fundamental to combinatorics, a branch mathematics dealing with combinations of objects belonging to a set. The methods can be used to count potential outcomes in probability experiments. It can also be used to develop estimates of how many operations an algorithm might need.

“The combinatorial gap is an important area with many connections to the rest of mathematics and computer science applications,” said Yu, whose work was supported by an undergraduate summer research fellowship, which awards 3 $500 to CMU undergraduate students for eight to 10 summer weeks. research in any field of study.

His summer findings describe more general conditions for a graph to have a linear deviation of Hamilton cycles (the difference between the number of edges colored in color 1 and the number of edges colored in color 2 is order of the total number of vertices).

“One of the great things about research is that it teaches you to think in an unconventional way and it takes some pizzazz to get to a solution that might not be clear,” Yu said.

Yu’s work often sits at the intersection of math and computer science. Last summer, he worked with John Mackey, a teaching professor in the Mathematical Science and Computer Science departments, and Marijn Heule, an associate professor of computer science.

Yu said he came to CMU with an open mind and many interests.

“I was happy to come to CMU, a university where I had very good options,” he said.

Outside of class and research, Yu is a teaching assistant for 15-213 Introduction to Computer Systems, resident assistant for Neville Apartments, and the chief mechanic of the Spirit Buggy team.

“I fell in love with Buggy once I participated in it,” Yu said. “I really like the energy and the atmosphere and the competitiveness. The students bring their passion to it and test the limits of what is possible. It really captures what makes CMU, CMU.”

From the first year she started the PhD program in computer science at Illinois, four years ago now, Manling Li knew about and wanted to be part of the EECS Rising Stars program. As a vehicle for career progression and awareness, Li felt there were no better opportunities than becoming a rising star.

At the end of October, she realized this moment.

Manling Li

Li attended the two-day workshop hosted this year by the University of Texas at Austin. This is an intensive workshop for graduate students and postdocs with historically marginalized or underrepresented genders who wish to pursue academic careers in electrical engineering, computer science, artificial intelligence, and decision-making.

“The most valuable finding for me was to improve my job search skills and better prepare myself for the job search, Li said. “One of the most valuable things I have learned is to think and act like a teacher during the job search process. As we approach the end of our higher education, we should not think of ourselves as students, but rather as leaders in our fields. , ready to guide cutting-edge research.

Li has already completed his thesis proposal and is in the final stages of completing his thesis research.

From a doctoral experience spent studying with Illinois professor and computer science consultant Heng Ji, while focusing on natural language processing (NLP) and computer vision (CV), Li was able to present three different instances in Rising Stars.

First, she had a poster presentation on “Understanding Event-Centered Multimodal Data”. Next, Li presented a 12-minute talk for the NLP Group on “CLIP-Event for Connecting Vision and Language through Event Structures”. Finally, Li also had an 8-minute conversation in front of peers, which served as a rehearsal for his introduction to a conversation about work.

“It was a special experience for me to participate in the practice of labor discussion. I have presented my work in several universities, but this presentation is in front of a group of peers who are in the labor market at the same time and will share their insights,” Li said. “Also, it was a great opportunity to meet people from the NLP group at UT Austin, which allowed me to exchange ideas with researchers and students there. We had a great discussion about what values ​​to embrace in the age of large-scale pre-training.”

Regarding his research interest, Li said his main goal is to “transform traditional access to information from entity-centric to even-centric as well as from text-only to multi-modal “.

While she’s been successful so far, Li thinks there’s still room to further explore understanding “deep behind-the-scenes semantics” – like what happened, to whom, when, where, why. and what happens next.

And it was valuable for her to open her findings and her speech to the participants and viewers of Rising Stars 2022.

“It was a pleasure to meet many brilliant peers from very different fields,” Li said. “I believe this is a good starting point to further explore interdisciplinary research. As an NLP and CV researcher, I have benefited greatly from interdisciplinary research, as well as comparing different understandings of knowledge and structures.

“During this event, I talked more with people from Human-Computer Interaction and Robotics. I look forward to integrating NLP into the physical world and evaluating how machines can work more effectively with humans, and ultimately improving the general performance of NLP which is collaborative between humans and machines.

In an already decorated college career, Li considered the inclusion of rising stars a milestone.

Previously, Li was awarded Best ACL Demonstration Paper 2020, Best NAACL Demonstration Paper 2021, and Microsoft Research Doctoral Fellowship last year.

“I see these recognitions as a natural progression in my development as an independent researcher,” Li said. events, helping humans better understand the deep semantics behind the data and the scene, and improving the quality of media content consumption.”

IGT and URI launch IT scholarship program for women – URI News https://cetril.org/igt-and-uri-launch-it-scholarship-program-for-women-uri-news/ Thu, 10 Nov 2022 20:16:29 +0000 https://cetril.org/igt-and-uri-launch-it-scholarship-program-for-women-uri-news/ KINGSTON, RI – November 10, 2022 – With generous support from IGT, the Department of Computer Science and Statistics at the University of Rhode Island is launching a four-year scholarship program aimed at increasing the number of women who specialize in computers.

KINGSTON, RI – November 10, 2022 – With generous support from IGT, the Department of Computer Science and Statistics at the University of Rhode Island is launching a four-year scholarship program aimed at increasing the number of women who specialize in computers.

The IGT Scholarship Program for Women in Computing – a $200,000 investment from IGT over the next four years – will open with a cohort of 10 women who are currently freshmen at URI . The scholarships provide a total of approximately $20,000 per student over four years and are open to any freshman who identifies as a woman. The deadline to apply is December 15. Recipients will be announced in January.

“IGT has partnered with URI for decades to provide top-quality internships, and we are excited to expand our support for URI students in this new capacity as we aim to increase the number of female computer science graduates, said Rachel Barber, Senior Vice President of IGT and Chief Technology Officer of Global Gaming. “As a URI alumnus, I hope this IGT Scholars program will inspire more women to pursue IT-focused careers and allow them to confidently enter a career in technology. “

“We are deeply grateful that IGT has stepped up this investment in our students,” said Jen Riley, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, which houses the computer science department. “In doing so, they help ensure that they and other companies have a diverse pool of workforce-directed talent that benefits everyone. At the same time, they strengthen our computer science program by helping us recruit and retain excellent students.

Nationally, women have earned about 57% of all bachelor’s degrees and about half of all science and engineering degrees since the late 1990s, but they only make up about 18% of those who graduate. a bachelor’s degree in computer science, according to the National Girls Collaborative Project.

Lisa DiPippo, chair of computer science at URI, sees the same disparity at URI, where the number of female computer science graduates is less than 20%. Over the past decade, the number of women graduating from the program has ranged from 11% to 17%. Seeking to find answers, the department researched programs at other universities and its own, she said.

“One of the things our research found was that women who left IT did not fare any worse than men who stayed in IT,” DiPippo said. “Women didn’t leave because of their grades. They were leaving because they felt they didn’t belong. They felt they wanted to find a major where there were more people like them.

Funding a cohort of 10 women – who will take courses and work together – can strengthen their sense of belonging, she said. This peer network nurtured by the scholarships can extend that sense of community to other women in the program. But also, DiPippo said, professors and IT staff will hold regular meetings and workshops with fellows on several topics, including academics, career coaching and job search skills.

“This scholarship program could be a game-changer,” she said. “IGT has very generously provided money to this cohort of students over the next four years. They set the tone. It is now our hope that we can find more companies that decide they want to do this. But it’s also a game-changer for the women in this cohort, giving them a sense of belonging that the group will provide and the confidence to succeed.

The IGT Scholars program will provide recipients with a $2,500 scholarship in the second semester of their freshman year and $5,000 scholarships over the following three years. Additionally, in their second year, fellows will be able to attend the Grace Hopper Celebration, the world’s largest gathering of women in technology.

But a big part of the scholarship program, DiPippo said, will be connecting recipients and the University to IGT. Recipients will be able to meet industry mentors from the company, and the program additionally opens up opportunities for internships and a senior capstone project where students can work on industry issues with an IGT engineer.

“IGT is an international company,” she said. “It’s a great introduction to all sorts of different paths students could go with their computer science degree.”

The scholarship program is open to any first-year URI student who identifies as a woman and is majoring in computer science or intends to major in the program. IGT scholars must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher.

A webinar will be held on November 16 at 5 p.m. for students who are considering applying to learn more about the IGT scholarship program. (Find a link to the webinar on the scholarship webpage.)

CAMBRIDGE, MA – Prof. Madhu Sudan is best known for his work on probabilistic verification of proofs and on the design of list decoding algorithms for error-correcting codes. His work has a huge impact on the industry.

His current research interests include property testing, which is the study of sublinear temporal algorithms for estimating properties of big data, and communication under uncertainty, a mathematical study of the role of context in communication.

On November 19, 2022, Professor Sudan will receive the New England Choice Awards for Academics 2022 at the Hilton Woburn Hotel in Woburn, MA. He is the Gordon McKay Professor of Computer Science at John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Science at Harvard University.

Professor Sudan obtained his bachelor’s degree from IIT Delhi in 1987 and his Ph.D. from UC Berkeley in 1992. Between 1992 and 2015, he worked at IBM Research, MIT (Associate Professor 1997-2000, Professor 2000-2011, Fujitsu Chair Professor 2003-2011, CSAIL Associate Director 2007-2009 , Adjunct Professor 2011-2015), and at Microsoft Research (Principal Researcher, 2009-2015).

Here is Q/A with Professor Sudan.

INDIA New England News: Who inspired you the most and how?

Madhu Sudan: It’s hard to tell people apart at this point – there are so many who have acted as mentors throughout my career. In fact, it is even difficult to distinguish a category of people, but let me do it anyway. I am constantly amazed by the genius of the students around me. My current favorite group is the undergraduates who work their way into research and then become part of it. It’s amazing to me that when I was at a comparable stage, I had no idea what research even is; and the students I interact with today have publications in leading journals before they graduate with a bachelor’s degree!

INE: What was the secret of your success?

MRS: I have always been driven by the need to understand new developments in the simplest possible terms. This objective – a need to understand and learn – does not really fit with the general objective of the research – which is to improve societal knowledge. Nevertheless, I was extremely lucky to be able to maintain my aim and use it to his advantage. Many contributions result from the ability to connect disparate research questions, and I attribute my success to my goal of having a simple understanding of basic findings in many different research areas.

INE: If in doubt, what do you do?

MRS: Whenever possible, I try to talk to someone — a collaborator, a colleague, a student — about it. When none of that works, I go to a board and start jotting down my thoughts. A good stroke of pencil and eraser inevitably leads to a clearing of the mind.

INE: Any advice you would give to the person you love?

MRS: To someone I love, I would say I love them even if they ignore my advice. Only then would I feel comfortable sharing real advice – which tends to vary depending on my own moods.

INE: How do you see failure?

MRS: If you haven’t failed, you probably aren’t exploring enough. Each failure is a strong lesson. Some failures happen because the question you asked was wrong. Some because you don’t (yet) have the skills to progress. And some happen when you invest a lot of time, make progress only to realize that someone else has already asked an equivalent question and answered it. Every failure teaches me something – how to adapt your questions, what skills I need to acquire, and how old research can be forgotten in the face of new knowledge.

INE: Your favorite books?

MRS: I’m a big fan of (old) science fiction and I love Isaac Asimov’s long interconnected stories. I love reading the longest versions I can find of the Mahabharata. (I even surprise my mother with my knowledge of Indian mythology.)

INE: Your favorite quotes?

MRS: Draw a blank right now. Here’s one mainly for my mathematical community: “Each theorem is named after the last person who discovered it.” (Translated to the general public “Scientific knowledge is often discovered, forgotten and rediscovered…until it has an impact and we do not forget it.”)

INE: Your three favorite films?

MRS: I’m mostly into western movies now – the pop variety. An all-time favorite that I keep watching (and my students know) is “Lock, stock and two smoking barrels”. Once upon a time I was a big fan of indie Indian movies like Aakrosh, Ardhsatya, Bazaar etc. I always like to think about it…

INE: How concerned or enthusiastic are you about the opinions of others?

MRS: In theory, I’m very concerned about other people’s opinions. The goal of every researcher is to have an impact beyond themselves and the more people appreciate and embrace your advances, the more successful your research. That being said, I try not to dwell on it in the short term and plan my research around it. I focus on issues that I like and try to progress; but if I get positive feedback on a job, it generates positive energy in me that helps me think more! When I receive negative comments, I tend to ignore them.

INE: What really matters to you in the end?

MRS: For me, the most important thing is that I am learning all the time. All of my research and interactions are driven by the goal of learning. As long as I’m learning, I don’t need much else to continue.

There are more smartphones in the world than people, but little or no networking research by computer scientists includes them.

Crowley

Patrick Crowley, a renowned expert in computer and network systems architecture at Washington University‘s McKelvey School of Engineering in St. Louis, plans to develop a new software infrastructure that would allow computer scientists to develop systems and networking protocols on smartphones and similar devices. with a three-year, $1.8 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). Such an infrastructure would allow better translation between research innovation and real-world use and commercialization.

He also received a one-year, $299,000 grant from the NSF to investigate whether the Internet’s longstanding challenges of efficiency, complexity, and trust could be better solved with a new communications model.

Crowley, professor of computer science and engineering, said that while most networking research projects are designed to improve the way users, devices and servers connect and communicate, most university researchers in systems only use the Linux operating system, while the most widely used user platforms are iOS and Android operating systems. A new framework would create software that could run on multiple types of devices and allow researchers to more easily assess their work in these common devices.

“Just as it’s easier to search for keys under a lamp post, it’s easier to design research projects within the comfortable confines of available research platforms,” ​​said Crowley, who leads the applied research lab. “The goal of this project is to significantly expand those boundaries.”

Mark Girolami is chief scientist at the Alan Turing Institute, the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence. He is one of its founding executive directors and previously led its data-centric engineering program. In 2019 he was elected to the Sir Kirby Laing Professorship of Civil Engineering at the University of Cambridge and was previously Head of Statistics in the Department of Mathematics at Imperial College London.

How do you start your working day?

Feeding our three cats and making the essential first coffee of the day while simultaneously checking email, Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook’s overnight feeds.

What was the peak of your career?

For the highs, I would say first when the public reading of my research in statistics at the Royal Statistical Society received the highest number of contributed discussions in its 186 year history. Second, to develop data-centric engineering at the Alan Turing Institute into a multimillion-pound global phenomenon, while achieving some world firsts. Third, to be elected to the Sir Kirby Laing Professorship of Civil Engineering at Cambridge. And finally my appointment as chief scientist at the Alan Turing Institute.

What was the most difficult moment of your career?

After working with IBM for ten years, it was difficult and risky to leave relative wealth, financial comfort and security to start over as a doctoral student and attempt to embark on an academic career. It seemed to work well, however.

If you could give your youngster one career advice, what would it be?

Relax. Do what excites you and gets you out of bed in the morning and out of bed at night. Enjoy the process.

Which political figure inspires you?

Over the past few years I have been fascinated by many political figures throughout history, reading about William Gladstone, David Lloyd George, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D Roosevelt, John F Kennedy, Barack Obama, Jan Smuts, Winston Churchill, Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair. . They are all people with feet of clay, yet they all inspire me with their ability to lead people and movement.

What UK policy or fund is the government putting in place?

The new Agency for Advanced Research and Invention (Aria). The UK science and innovation landscape needs long-term funding for high-risk, high-reward research with less bureaucracy.

And what policy should the British government abandon?

The government should reinstate its commitment to reach 2.4% of GDP for research and development (R&D), and in fact aim for a higher percentage to bring the UK in line with international comparators and demonstrate our competitiveness on the stage international. When we hit 2.4%, some of our competitors will be at 3%.

Which upcoming UK policy or law are you most looking forward to?

The Clean Air Bill, which seeks to establish the right to breathe clean air. Poor air quality is bad for human health. It’s one of the things the Alan Turing Institute’s Data-Centric Engineering program has been working on as part of a project to use machine learning algorithms to improve the quality of air over London.

What international government policy could the UK learn from?

Singapore has some excellent business-friendly policies that I think the UK could learn from, for example its progressive intellectual property (IP) regime and regulatory sandboxes.

If you could pass one law this year, what would it be?

It’s really important that people have the right skills in an increasingly digital and data-driven society that uses artificial intelligence, so I think computer science should be a compulsory subject in schools until ( and including) GCSE level.
