    Spectral sparsity plays an important role in many different areas of computer science and signal processing, including data compression, error-correcting codes, learning theory, communication complexity, property testing, and parity decision tree complexity. In particular, sparsity allows one to design Sparse Fourier Transforms which can be dramatically more efficient than the regular Fast Fourier Transforms. However, performance of such algorithms is conditioned on the sparsity assumption. Much less is known about verifying this assumption efficiently. In this talk I will describe new... Read More

    The Department of Computer Sciences invites prospective undergraduate students and their guests to learn more about computer science study at UW-Madison during our Undergraduate Prospective Student Information Sessions. Prospective students and their guests will learn about the undergraduate program and have the opportunity for Q&A with an academic advisor and department faculty.

    Information sessions for the summer term are scheduled so that prospective students and guests may also register for an Admissions... Read More

    Title: The CAVA Computer: Exceptional Parallelism and Energy Efficiency

    Abstract: Designing a new computer system is a very expensive proposition. But 80% of it is exactly the same as every other computer—you need caches, multiprocessing, coherency protocols, memory systems, etc. Getting all of that right requires skill and experience, but is taken for granted and does not command much of a premium. Getting it wrong, on the other hand, is a commercial disaster. In this talk I propose a research initiative to standardize and open-source a design for the 80% that is the same in... Read More
