Seminar: Domain Specific Design Tools with application to Internet of Things

June 17, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Huxley Building Room 218, Imperial College London
London, SW7 2AZ United Kingdom
+ Google Map

Speaker name: Dr. Benedict Gaster Abstract Internet of Things is an area of active interest, some people predicting a million unique devices in the next 5 years, all sharing a common lineage low-power and censoring the world. If this is really the case, then these devices must be designed and built by more than professional programmers and system architects! In this talk we introduce the notion of Domain Specific Design Tools (DSDT), that allow users of technology to design their own devices. In itself this is not…

Seminar: Automatically Comparing Memory Consistency Models

October 26, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Huxley Building Room 217, Imperial College London
London, SW7 2AZ United Kingdom

S-REPLS Seminar Slides Speaker name: Dr. John Wickerson Abstract A memory consistency model (MCM) is the part of a programming language or computer architecture specification that defines which values can legally be read when a thread in a concurrent program reads from a shared memory location. Because MCMs have to take into account various optimisations employed by modern architectures (such as store buffering and instruction reordering) and compilers (such as constant propagation), they often end up being complex and counterintuitive, which…

Seminar – Predicting User Demographics in Social Networks

February 22 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
340 Huxley + Google Map

Speaker name: Nikolaos Aletras Abstract: Automatically inferring user demographics in social networks is useful for both social science research and a range of downstream applications in marketing and politics. Our main hypothesis is that language use in social networks is indicative of user attributes. This talk presents recent work on inferring a new set of socioeconomic attributes, i.e. occupational class, income and socioeconomic class. We define a predictive task for each attribute where user-generated content is utilised to train supervised…

Data Co-Management with Modern Hardware

May 18 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
611 (Gabor Seminar Room), EEE Building + Google Map

Upcoming lecture by Raja Appuswamy, Postdoctoral Researcger in the DIAS lab at EPFL, on data management systems Abstract The design of data management systems has always been driven based on two aspects, namely, underlying hardware and applications requirements. The past few years have, however, witnessed dramatic changes in both these aspects. On the hardware front, computer architecture is in a phase of constant change resulting in growing heterogeneity in the design of processors, memory, interconnects, and storage. With the wide-spread…
