Ellen Goodman (Rutgers) presents on questions about algorithmic ethics – about the values embedded in artificial intelligence and big data analytics that increasingly replace human decision-making.
Andrei Barbu, Research Scientist, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Wednesday, November 15, 1:00-2:00pm; Hariri Institute for Computing (111 Cummington Mall, Boston) Abstract: We will discuss a program to unify research around a number of vision-language problems into a single mathematical framework culminating in a robotic platform that is able to follow natural language commands, store knowledge, and answer questions. […]
Sponsored and hosted by the Hariri Institute and the BU Center for Reliable Information Systems and Cyber Security (RISCS), the Charles River Crypto Day brings together academics and research scientists from local universities and research labs to discuss recent advances in cryptography.
Guorong Li, Associate Professor, University of Chinese Academy of Sciences Wednesday, November 8, 1:00-2:00pm; Hariri Institute for Computing (111 Cummington Mall, Boston) Abstract: With the increasing prevalence of digital camera, images and videos have become the necessary part of people’s life. It is important to analyze videos, images and understand them automatically. In this talk, I will […]
Craig Yu, Associate Professor, UMass Boston Wednesday, November 1, 1:00-2:00pm; Hariri Institute for Computing (111 Cummington Mall, Boston) Abstract: With the increasing amount of 3D data captured from the real world and human perceptual data that can be obtained from virtual reality, it becomes very promising to devise data-driven computational design approaches for creating highly immersive 3D […]
The Hariri Institute for Computing is pleased to bring to the attention of BU faculty its fall 2017 request for project proposals to be considered for funding under the Hariri Institute Research Awards program. The deadline for proposals is Monday, November 20, 2017, 5pm.
Mélina Skouras, Postdoctoral Associate, Massachusetts Institute of Technology Wednesday, October 25, 1:00-2:00pm; Hariri Institute for Computing (111 Cummington Mall, Boston) Abstract: Recent technological advances in digital manufacturing enable experts and casual users alike to design and fabricate complex structures with fine control over their external geometry and internal material distribution. However, designing an object that is […]
Ran Canetti, RISCS Director, hosts a Research on Tap event focused on Cybersecurity, or the study of information systems that are accessible to the public and yet resilient to malicious subversion. This event is open to faculty, staff, graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars.
The Mobile and Electronic Health Affinity Research Collaborative (ME-ARC) holds its 2nd annual symposium, in support of the collaborative’s work to conduct state-of-the art research and training in mobile and electronic health to improve the health of underserved populations across the lifespan.
For this Cyber Alliance Speaker Series event, Prof. Meurer will discuss social welfare issues concerning investment in databases that can be used to develop AI technologies, and access to those databases.
