Enabling Data Science for the Majority

Despite great strides in the generation, collection, storage, and processing of data at scale, data science is either out of reach, or, at the very least, extremely inconvenient for the majority of the population. The driving goal of our research is to help individuals and teams--regardless of programming or analysis ability--manage, analyze, make sense of, and draw insights from large datasets.

Improving Genetic Association Analysis Through Integration of Functional Annotations and Biobank Data

Continuing efforts from large consortia have made genome-wide epigenetic and transcriptomic annotation data available for a variety of tissue and cell types. These functional annotation data, in conjunction with rich phenotypic information in large biobanks, provide great opportunities for dissecting complex diseases’ genetic architecture. In this talk, I will present a few examples to demonstrate recent advances in data integration approaches in genetic association analysis.

The Technical Challenges @ Swoop

Leading engineers at Swoop Search will discuss some of the most interesting technical challenges that their team has overcome as they established their innovative search platform. Some of these challenges include handling unstructured data in real-time, creating a custom index, deploying in a highly secure environment, defining patterns that are both mathematically significant and data agnostic, and creating an intuitive UI that empowers both non-technical users and experienced analysts.

Offerings from the Classification Program for Counting Problems ( logic seminar)

  • Title: Offerings from the Classification Program for Counting Problems

Suppose α and β are two angles satisfying tan(α) = r tan(β) > 0, for some rational number r > 1. Can both α and β be rational multiples of π?

Let p(x,y) = x5 - (2y+1) x3 - (y2+2) x2 + y(y-1)x + y3. Is it true that for every integer y ≥ 4, p(x, y) is an irreducible polynomial in Q[x], whereby we can determine its Galois group?
