Computer Science Building Room 142
ACM Student Chapter Event
Speaker: James M. Coggins

For the past 5 years, Jamees has worked at ViaSat, Inc. where his job has been, essentially, to develop software systems that predict the future. In this talk, he will describe two projects he has worked on and how a combination of insight, mathematics, and determination (or, cussedness) have resulted in him learning how to develop prediction systems and his systems learning to do their predictions.
