Advances in sensor miniaturization, low-power computing, and battery life have enabled the first generation of mainstream wearable cameras. Millions of hours of videos have been captured by these devices, creating a record of our daily visual experiences at an unprecedented scale. This has created a major opportunity to develop new capabilities and products based on First Person Vision (FPV)--the automatic analysis of videos captured from wearable cameras. Meanwhile, vision technology is at a tipping point. Major progress has been made over the last few years in both visual recognition and... Read More

Repeats every month on October, November, December on the first Tuesday 3 times.Tuesday, October 2, 2018 -12:15pm to 1:15pm, Tuesday, November 6, 2018 -12:15pm to 1:15pm, Tuesday, December 4, 2018 -12:15pm to 1:15pmCS 2310WACM
The perfect gathering for all WACM members and Women in Tech to stay in touch, exchange updates about the advances in the relevant field and most of all meet people with similar goals and aspirations. Each cycle we choose a different theme or a topic for the day and use the luncheons as a way to let off some steam and go back to our schedules re energized, fresh and inspired.
Note: This is no longer a 'bring your own food'. There will be free food ordered by the bi-weekly chairs! Microsoft is generously sponsoring the bi-weekly luncheons this semester.

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
