Traditional storage systems interfaces, including POSIX file I/O and block-based interfaces have been a major success. They are easy to understand and use and their decades-long rule have prevented vendor lock-in and encouraged innovation across common interfaces. However, HPC and cloud systems are pushing their scalability, and behind their veneer of simplicity, idiosyncratic "magic" numbers are lurking, destroying performance if applications fail to discover and properly tend to them.
To celebrate the end of the academic year, the Computer Sciences Department invites you to our annual lunch on Monday, April 30th from 11:45 AM - 1:30 PM.
The lunch will be conveniently located over in WID (Wisconsin Inst. for Discovery), in the H.F. DeLuca Forum.
The event is a great opportunity to visit informally with CS faculty and other students, both undergraduates and graduates. At the lunch, we'll announce the winners of the CS Department Awards and Fellowships.
We study an online resource allocation problem where a seller has many items with multiplicities to offer and the items are arranged in a total order. Buyers are interested in buying intervals of items, and have different values for different intervals, drawn from a known distribution. The seller’s goal is to design an online allocation mechanism that maximizes social welfare. Importantly, buyers’ preferences have complementarities, so that recently-developed constant-factor approximations via item prices do not apply, and indeed strong negative results are known.

Even as the cost of DNA sequencing continues to drop, there is still a strong interest among researchers to use techniques such as targeted enrichment to enable more focused sequencing of specific regions in a genome. The lower cost of sequencing allows researchers to increase the number of samples, depth of coverage, or panel size. For this talk, I will focus on three published studies which have used panels of nucleic acid probes for targeted enrichment in unique ways to accomplish their scientific goals.
As a Data and Analytics Associate you will work on analytical projects and tasks including third-party data integration and management, research and analysis for marketing and troubleshooting and support of our production systems. This role is diverse and often complex in nature. The Data and Analytics associate will also be required to work extensively with our data and database systems. This role reports to our MD, analytics.
