Seminar
Computer Science Building, Room 150/151
Monday, 02/24/2020 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Abstract: Much of the recent empirical success in natural language processing has relied on the use of neural networks to compute expressive, global representations of sentences and documents. However, incorporating such...

Seminar
Computer Science Building, Room 150/151
Tuesday, 02/25/2020 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Abstract: Real-world graphs abound with structures: peer-to-peer networks have bounded growth; road networks are planar; social networks have small separators. How do we take these structures to algorithmic advantage? In...
