CPSRC Seminar: Easy, Hard or Convex? The Role of Sparsity and Structure in Systems Theory

Mario Sznaier
Dennis Picard Trustee Professor

Abstract: Arguably, one of the hardest challenges faced now by the systems community stems from the exponential explosion in the availability of data, fueled by recent advances in sensing and actuation capabilities. Simply stated, classical techniques are ill equipped to handle very large volumes... Read More

Declarative Learning-based Programming for Learning and Reasoning over Spatial Language

Parisa Kordjamshidi
Assistant Professor; Research Scientist

Abstract: The recent research results in Natural Language Understanding (NLU) and other problem domains show that monolithic deep learning models trained on merely large volumes of data suffer from lack of interpretability and generalizability. For NLU, we often need computational models that... Read More
