D3S Seminar – Department Meeting

The D3S Seminar is a regular meeting event of the department members and guest speakers. It is also a regular course Advanced Topics in Distributed and Component-Based Systems I, II (NSWI057, NSWI058). This course is recommended for Ph.D. and advanced graduate students.

Regular meetings take place on Tuesdays at 14:00 in S9 and Wednesdays at 9:00 in S5 (if not noted otherwise in the schedule below).

We recommend subscribing to the seminar mailing list to receive announcements on special seminars, schedule updates and other important news.

Scheduled Seminars

2018-05-02 09:00 in S5: Python for Data Analysis

Iuliana Bocicor (Babeş-Bolyai University, Romania)

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (ML) applications are ubiquitous and actively change so many aspects of our lives nowadays. One of the most used programming languages for machine learning applications is Python. Due to its simplicity and elegance, but mostly to its powerful numerical linear algebra and scientific computing libraries, Python is easy to use and thus many popular libraries that are widely used for ML tasks are written in Python. This talk describes how Python’s ML libraries can be employed for various ML tasks, with applications in medical data analysis and classification, as well as for studies and analyses on molecular biology data (DNA classification and protein dynamics).

2018-05-15 14:00 in S9: Generalizing Uncertainty Across Domains in Industrial Cyber-Physical Systems

Rima Al Ali

Cyber-physical systems (CPS) need to be designed to deal with various forms of uncertainty associated with data contributing to the system's knowledge of the environment. Dealing with uncertainty requires adopting an appropriate model which then allows making the right decisions and carrying out the right actions (possibly affecting the environment) based on imperfect information. However, choosing and incorporating a suitable model into CPS design is difficult, especially for non-experts, because it requires identifying the kind of uncertainty at hand as well as knowledge of suitable models and their applications. While inspiration can be found in other CPS designs, the details of dealing with uncertainty in another CPS can be confounded by domain-specific terminology, context, and requirements. To make this aspect of CPS design less daunting for non-experts, we aim at providing a generalized view of approaches dealing with uncertainty in the design of CPS targeting collective behavior. To this end, we present a systematic review of relevant projects and a synthesis of relations between system features, the kinds of uncertainty, and models and methods used to deal with it. The resulting model provides a generalized view of uncertainty across different domains and challenges.
