Tackling the complexities of financial time series data analysis and prediction using Apache Spark/ML

Bloomberg receives large volumes of high-frequency financial time series from a wide variety of sources. We strive to provide to our clients real-time, reproducible and top quality analytics derived from this data. In this talk, we will present to you the challenges associated with running analytics on top of this complex data and the solutions we have built for anomaly detection, prediction, aggregation and scoring of data.

Faculty Candidate Talk: Mathematical Models of Adaptation in Human-Robot Collaboration

The goal of my research is to improve human-robot collaboration by integrating mathematical models of human behavior into robot decision making. I develop game-theoretic algorithms and probabilistic planning techniques that reason over the uncertainty in the human internal state and its dynamics, enabling autonomous systems to act optimally in a variety of real-world collaborative settings.
