Sublinear Algorithms Workshop, Jan 2016, Before SODA
Vladimir Braverman, Piotr Indyk, Robert Krauthgamer and Sofya Raskhodnikova are organizing a Sublinear Algorithms workshop that will take place at
Johns Hopkins University, January 7-9, 2016. The workshop will bring
together researchers interested in sublinear algorithms, including
sublinear-time algorithms (e.g., property testing and distribution
testing), sublinear-space algorithms (e.g., sketching and streaming) and
sublinear measurements (e.g., sparse recovery and compressive sensing). The workshop will be held right before SODA’16.
Smriti Bhagat, a Rutgers MassDAL PhD, posted a Facebook research blog on Diversity in India, to coincide with the visit of the Prime Minister of India to Silicon Valley. Diversity in India, a social nation, is a much-mentioned topic, but now made sharper via this pandectic data analysis.
Key and Peele, talented comedians with tight skits, have done many special pieces, but this is ultra special. A spoof on Sports Central, draft coverage, this one is on Teachers Draft (for High Schools):
Streaming and MapReduce algorithms: Researchers Wanted!
I would love to have a postdoc, senior graduate student or a faculty who is willing to spend 6 months to 1 year at DIMACS/Rutgers, anytime starting Sept '15, working on streaming algorithms, mapreduce/hadoop algorithms, Big Data, all the good theory stuff. Pl. contact me.
