  • Wednesday, September 26, 2018 -
    3:30pm to 4:30pm
    Computer Sciences building, Room 1240
    Various Undergrad Students and an HR recruiter

    Join your peers to get advice on applying for internships and what to expect. This is a great opportunity to hear from your fellow students about their varied experiences in their internships.

    You can also hear directly from a human resources recruiter to help answer those internship questions you always wanted to ask!

    This is a great way to prepare for the CS Job fair too!

    Please RSVP here (you must be logged into your wisc.edu account to access the form).

  • Friday, September 28, 2018 - 4:00pm
    Edward Klief Park

    The CS department Fall Picnic will be on Friday, Sept 28th at 4pm in Edward Klief Park! This picnic is for all CS undergraduates, graduates, faculty, and staff. Families are also invited. Past picnics have featured volleyball, frisbee, touch football, soccer, and croquet in addition to the food and drink. The picnics are well attended by faculty and students alike.

    Come join us for food, conversation, and sports. SACM will be providing burgers, brats, soda, and snacks.

    Search is a core technology that allows Bloomberg to deliver financial news and information quickly and reliably to our clients. The Search Infrastructure team has created a high performance, stable and scalable search ecosystem to support a large, complex and diverse set of search applications.

    Providing search as a service to the thousands of developers in this demanding environment requires us to take a holistic approach. In this talk I'll discuss both the organizational and technical challenges we've encountered and the approach we've taken to solve them. I'... Read More

    AI technologies, such as machine learning, are seeing increasing adoption in adversarial settings. One important domain in which AI techniques are particularly promising is detection: for example, one can, in principle, use data to learn how to detect a host of malicious activities, including malware and intrusions. A key challenge in detection is how to trade off the consequences of a failure to detect malicious activity and the cost of false alarms, especially in the case when the malicious party makes deliberate attempts to avoid being detected.

    I describe our approaches to... Read More

    David Bamman

    With the rise of large-scale digitization efforts over the past ten years (such as those by Google Books, the HathiTrust, and the Internet Archive), we now have access to large textual datasets preserving our cultural record in the form of printed books. These text collections have driven research at the intersection of computational methods and the humanities, exploiting advances made over past thirty years in natural language processing and machine learning.

    In this talk, I'll outline some of the opportunities this data presents for research in "distant reading" (... Read More

    Polina Golland, PhD
    MIT Electrical Engr and Computer Science

    Abstract: We present an algorithm for creating high resolution anatomically plausible images that are consistent with acquired clinical brain MRI scans with large inter-slice spacing. Although large databases of clinical images contain a wealth of information, medical acquisition constraints result in sparse scans that miss much of the anatomy. These characteristics often render computational analysis impractical as standard processing algorithms tend to fail when applied to such images. Our goal is to enable application of existing algorithms that were originally developed for high... Read More

    CS 1240
    Codecinella and WACM
    Women from Various Madison-Area Companies

    Interviewing can be stressful. Come practice your interview skills with local
    professional women software developers. We are not recruiters, we are not
    representing our companies or hiring. As your peers we hope to give you some
    practice with a technical interview and feedback on your resume. Bring at
    least three copies of a current resume. Volunteers will give you feedback on
    your resume as well as on your interview.

    The spirit of this event is to practice interview skills in a supportive
    environment. Please no recruiters.

    CS 1240
    Moshe Y. Vardi
    Rice University

    Mathematical logic was developed in an effort to provide formal foundations
    for mathematics. In this quest, which ultimately failed, logic begat
    computer science, yielding both computers and theoretical computer science.
    But then logic turned out to be a disappointment as foundations for
    computer science, as almost all decision problems in logic are either
    unsolvable or intractable. Starting from the mid 1970s, however, there
    has been a quiet revolution in logic in computer science, and problems that
    are theoretically undecidable or intractable... Read More
